For Soccer Fans

I’ve been working on an article for our referees titled “Do You Hear What I Hear?”. It’s about getting beyond what our ears hear and finding the actual meaning in the feedback referees receive on and off the field. I told my dad about it and he asked if I was going to set it to music. That led to this spontaneous bit of song-writing:

Said the angry coach to the referee,
Do you see what I see?
Surely that should be a penalty!
Do you see what I see?
A foul! A foul!
Right before your eyes,
How’d you miss it you blind imbecile?
How’d you miss it you blind imbecile?

Said the midfielder to the lead AR,
Do you hear what I hear?
He touched the ball before it crossed the line!
Do you hear what I hear?
Our ball, not theirs!
How can you say it’s theirs?
It should be our team’s corner kick!
It should be our team’s corner kick!

Yelled the spectators to the referees,
Do you know what we know?
Dang you guys are so ignorant!
Do you know what we know?
Hand ball! Offsides!
He’s playing on the ground!
We could see that from all the way up here!
We could see that from all the way up here!

Hmm, I smell a hit record…
