The Lyrics

hello out there, we're on the air
it's fifa night tonight
it's Italy, red white and green,
and there's the French in white
the ball is high, the frenchman dives
and writhes around the floor
the ref's a whore, zidanne scores
in the good old soccer game

oh the good old soccer game
is a play by another name
and the play is 'writhe in pain"
at the good old soccer game

(same half)

the ball goes out, they call time out
a corner kick for red
they jostle back and forth in front,
as they try to score with heads
the ball is sailed, the reds prevail,
and in the net it goes
not a chance!! vive la France
at the good old soccer game

oh the good old soccer game
is a play by another name
and the play is 'writhe in pain"
at the good old soccer game

(second half)

it's close again, they writhe in pain
hoping for a card
then Zinedine butts with his bean,
and hits his guy real hard
the fans go wild, this spolied child
has hit one with his head
out you go, yes you should know
that a head butt card is red

oh the good old soccer game
is a play by another name
and the play is 'writhe in pain"
at the good old soccer game

(shootout)

as they teams prepare it's tense in there
for Jacques Chiraq the pres
the Italians know to shoot it low
and they'll always beat Barthez
the french kick high, it's do or die
as the red put down the ball
the place roars Azzuri scores,
and win the cup again

oh the good old soccer game
is a play by another name
and the play is 'writhe in pain"
at the good old soccer game

The version I d/l was half a verse shorter, but what a great original, and I'll trust you on the rest so 5s. OK so they missed Gretsky's booking scandals and Canada coming with a team so old that they writhe in pain from just plain age, but what the heck, great parody too!
