Title: World Cup Madness

World Cup madness has hit the streets near me.
Red and white flags are not my cup of tea.
They're floating out of windows.
They're festooning house and home.
They're on all kinds of products.
They make me want to groan.

World Cup madness; it's not just a British thing.
I watched the opening ceremony. I heard them try to sing.
With all the pomp and ceremony,
you'd think it was something great.
But it's just men kicking a ball around
and that's not open to debate.

World Cup madness; the Wags are out en masse.
What can you say about them? Probably best to pass?
Such nutter adulation is more than I can take.
They 'earn' more than the bankers
and that really really grates.
