Rugby World Cup 2011

AnElephantCant be expert at all sports
He’s not one to beat his own drum
Where rugby is concerned
He hasn’t yet learned
The difference between drop-goal and scrum

But this World Cup has got him excited
He has followed it through thick and through thin
The only down side
Is national pride
It’s one more trophy that Scotland can’t win

Our brave lads didn’t get to the knock-outs
Their defeat gave our heart-strings a wrench
The Irish were plucky
The Welsh quite unlucky
And England were battu by the French

The All Blacks march into the final
The Aussies left crushed in their wake
The Boks are out too
That just leaves Les Bleus
To give New Zealand a touch of heartache

We have always been quite Francophilic
But we can’t see them winning this prize
When Richie McCaw
Gets his mitts on the ba’
The AB’s just keep scoring more tries

We have some ideas for the next time
To give our team a chance of success
AnElephant or two
In Scotland’s dark blue
Would let us scrummage and ruck with the best!
