When Those Brazilians Hit The 'Swich

Machado De Assis sits in the Ipswich Reading Room
Seu Jorge in West End Music strums a mellow Bowie tune
Behold Oscar Niemeyer gazing up at Foster's Willis
While Heitor Villa-Lobos wonders where Gilberto Gil is

Joaquim Cruz is Northgate bound, his race is nearly starting
As Ayrton Senna overtakes at Anglia Indoor Karting
Down by the docks stands Lucio Costa checking out The Mill
And poor Cesar Cielo hoped to swim lengths at Broomhill

Paulo Coelho has a dream of travelling to Coes
Gisele Bundchen, wax complete, eats BBQ at Rios
Kaka's kicked off at Portman Road, he's scoring goals for fun
Watched by Astrud Gilberto, the girl from IP1

Meanwhile, at the Black Adder, an unfortunate melee
Sees Socrates resuscitating Ipswich Town's Pele
The numpty's had too much champagne, now Alan's feeling ill
Please someone fetch an awful lot of coffee for Brazil
