The Lyrics

I'm beginning to have serious doubts about the intelligence of soccer players and coaches. It's been know for years that the 2010 World Cup will be held in the R.S.A (Republic of South Africa). It's been know for longer that the sound from the vuvuzelas are deafening out on the field. There's been plenty of time to figure out ways to cope with that. Yet among all these brilliant players, high paid coaches (Fabio Capello of England alone is making six million pounds a year) and multi million dollar sponsors involved only ONE coach and ONE team came up with the obvious idea to train at least once under real time, lifelike field conditions. That team was Switzerland. They asked all their fans and the locals to come to the last training session with vuvuzelas and toot as much as they possibly could from the stands. Then in the first round they took down the bitchin' big favourites, Spain, by 1-0. Read about it here:

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here:

Spain lost in The Cup's first round
The Swiss kicked their asses, shot them to the ground
Most teams are complaining that the noise is too much
That's a lame ass excuse for fucking it up

Horns in the R.S.A
They blow horns in the R.S.A
They blow horns in the R.S.A
Horns in the R.S.A

Gawd awful noisy background jam
Spreading tinnitus across the lands
Swiss alone used their fans on the stands
And came prepared, to ball wham-bam

Horns in the R.S.A
They blow horns in the R.S.A
They blow horns in the R.S.A
Horns in the R.S.A

Swiss coach said, we came prepared you see
And the rest said, ban this if it's up to me
They went on field without a working plan
And lost out an easy upper hand

They're making millions back in Spain
Kicking ball should be so plain
So come prepared, not in vain
As much as vuvuzelas should be gone
There'll be no rapture and their impact's strong

Down in the third Cup of the century
Horns making large asses of the coachery
And not just Spain's rep has been eroded
Nimwit team England is near 'bout to implode

Horns in the R.S.A
They blow horns in the R.S.A
Horns in the R.S.A
Lotsa green lawn suckers in the R.S.A
Horns in the R.S.A
Horns in the R.S.A
Horns in the R.S.A
There are fools coaching soccer in the R.S.A

Great choice of OS. If England is about to implode, France has already become a black hole.

:-) I keep thinking "Vuvuzela" to the tune of "Barcelona".. but there's too many notes, just not monotonous enough

Phil - You just gave me great idea. "Girl from Ipanema" into "Whir from Vuvuzelas"

Always something good from you, Peter! :)

McK - you could always go for "Bafana Bafana" to "Hakuna Matata", if you're after another world cup parody
