The Lyrics

Since 1998, the biggest soccer clubs in Europe have repeatedly threatened to break away from their domestic leagues and the UEFA Champions League to form a super league. Well, in light of Covid-19's impact on the game, that idea has become reality. The other day on Twitter, I overheard the news that six English clubs, three Italian and three Spanish sides were going to form such an entity along with eight other clubs to be announced. This closed league plan resembles that for basketball's Euroleague, which itself emerged from a secession from the approved structure a few years ago. Remembering the song title of the OS from my earlier ABBA tear a decade ago, I decided to make my 120th parody and 16th of the group a "dedication" to the idea.
The little clubs, they work all day
The league to win, the bills to pay.
Ain't it sad?
And yet the bigwigs dominate
More iron-fistedly of late.
That's too bad!
Now they want to go away
While the little clubs decay.
Who cares about the match 'gainst Leeds
When avarice you'll gladly feed?

Money, money, money--that's all, dummy,
In the football world.
Money, money, money, Arab honey,
Spread across the world.
Uh-huh, aah,
In the game's nothin' new
But more money, money, money
In the football world.
It's the football world!

It's money first in gold and green,
With football nowhere to be seen.
Ain't it sad?
The transfer-agents don't work free;
They will come calling for their fees.
That's too bad!
The pyramids (1) are falling down;
The clubs are fading from their towns
So sportsbooks can put lines on games
And sponsor kits all just the same.

Money, money, money, owners' tummies
Rotund as the world.
Money, money, money, Chinese honey
Spread throughout the world.
Uh-huh, aah,
Rupert Murdoch, you're screwed
For the money, money, money
Unleashed on the world.

Money, money, money, never sunny
For the football world.
Money, money money, U.S. honey
Closed the football world.
Uh-huh, aah,
Now you need franchise dues,
Which means money, money, money
In the football world.
It's the football world.
Footnote: (1) The pyramid is a given country's league system for soccer.
