Please buy a flag – support your team!
Red, black and gold flap in the breeze
World Cup fever grips our scene
What to do at times like these?
Rear-view mirrors – patriotic
Red Devil T-shirts on display
Tripartite fright wigs are exotic
Mass hysteria every day!
And even those, like me, who find
This phenomenon beyond their ken
Observe this country’s of one mind
As our King is in Brazil – Amen!
United we stand; now there’s a thing
With royal seal how could we fail?
Before big screens supporters sing
While the vanquished Russian team turns tail!
