The Lyrics

This won't make sense if you're not familiar with English soccer. If you are familiar with it, it still might not make sense.
(instrumental opening)

I saw a referee with a yellow card in his hand
for Ledley King's hard tackle in the rain.
The Tottenham Hotspur, they're well nigh fooked
for eating lasagne instead of chow mein.

Football in London!

Football in London!

If you see John Terry howling outside your door
you better not let him in.
A footballer's girlfriend got shagged late last night.
Captain of Chelsea again!

Football in London!

Football in London!

(instrumental break)

He's the twitchy-headed gent who sold off Darren Bent.
Harry Redknapp, Spurs' manager don't play fair.
You better stay away from him, or he'll bankrupt your club, Jim.
Ha! He ain't no Graham Taylor!

Football in London!

Football in London!

Well, did you see an Arsenal fan walking with the Queen?
Call themselves the Pride of North London.
"No," says Arsene Wenger, "I did not see it.
But at least I maintain our fundin'"

I saw a West Ham hooligan dishing out a right hiding.
And his hair was perfect.

Football in London!
Ha! Draw blood!

Football in London!

(instrumental fadeout)

Hey bud, there's only ONE kind of Football in this world and if it isn't NFL, it isn't sh*t. Soccer is soccer and is a p***y sport, sorta like politically voting Labor or Green!

Seriously, how well would any NFL team do against Real Madrid, Schalke or Inter Milan?

Not much of a soccer fan but I like a good parody.

Michael - Barnum was right after all. There IS a soccer born every minute. Nicely done. ;D

Seriously, how well would those soccer boys do playing a manly sport against the a tough offensive line? Having their faces smashed into the ground and breaking ribs? Face a 350 lb LB or get sacked in a Blitz? America is the greatest nation on earth and the world has copied OUR football, OUR Baseball, OUR Basketball. Soccer is a Third World no hope sport- it's all those poor beggars have to take pride in and look forward too- but if you lose in South America be prepared to be killed or your family. Yeah, Miss Talk... go take a walk!

....otherwise your parody was very witty and shows you know something about the sport. The only football I know is what they play at the Super Bowl.

NFL4ever, the soccer boys would skirmish around and run circles around the NFL heavies - until the heavies get tired. Just like in rugby. I do not consider Germany, UK, France, Spain, Italy and South Korea as third world nations. And, yup, we kicked the butts of the rest of the world in ice hockey, That's what you get when you live at sixty north.
