The Lyrics

Have to say, the OS (original sonnet) is one of my most disliked poems of all - don't like what he's saying, or how he's saying it. But it seemed somehow appropriate...
If we should lose, think well on this, Rooney:
That there's some donkeys on a foreign field
That try and play for England, there shall be
From those rich twats rich irony revealed
A team whom England bore, paid, idolized
Gave lots, unseemly huge amounts of dosh
Eleven of England's best now so despised
From dread performance, excuses will not wash

So wake up, Wayne, before tomorrow's game
A goal or two, a hat-trick, but no less
Score more goals than Portugal between ya
Make recompense for booing fans, their pain
And one more little thing, ere I digress..
Make sure you ****ing win against Slovenia
