“Oh don’t stop de Carnival” (World Cup)

You’ll never have a better say….“Oh don’t stop de Carnival”
So pack your bags and then just fly away….“Oh don’t stop de Carnival”
Alight on Rio’s famous beach…. where protocol of rich and poor do breach
Each night, Favela’s come to life….to dance away their cares and daily strife

“England are only dreamin”….“England are only dreeeeee…eeeeea..min”

Back home the country holds its breath….once more pitched in….said ‘Group of Death’
‘Azzuri’ – ‘La Celeste’.. to name but two ….’Los Ticos’ last, may help them through
“Oh don’t stop de Carnival”

“England are only dreamin”….“England are only dreeeeee…eeeeea..min”

“The “Seleção” will get us under way….“Vatreni” meet mine hosts today
São Paulo, will ‘great party’ throw…. when glimpsing….“Joga Bonito”
“Yeeeeesssssss” and still with four more weeks to go !
“Oh don’t stop de Carnival”

“England are only dreamin”….“England are only dreeeeee…eeeeea..min”
