In the wake of Tuesday afternoon’s shall we say “unpleasantness” in Natal, London-based balladeer Tom Rosenthal has penned an achingly beautiful torch song about Luis Suarez and the inherent animal madness thereof.

It’s a heart-breaker…

The lyrics…

There’s a party in your brain,
no one is invited and no one ever came,
what is going on?
what on earth is going on in there?

There’s magic in your feet.
Diamonds in your feet, wolves in your eyes,
Wait for the surprise, wait for the big surprise.

Hey Louis Louis don’t bite me,

Tough to be a genius,
tough to be a man,
tough to be a horse,
tough to be a frog
tough to be a football
tough to be alive

You’re not getting wiser,
you’re not getting smarter,
but you’re sure getting bolder,
oh what a love
what a love for the shoulders

A psychoanalysts dream
you gotta lie down,
tell them what it means
maybe they can work it out
maybe no one can work you out

Always carry snacks,
save your fellow man
from your crazy mouth attacks ,
oh louis we all get hungry

Hey Louis Louis don’t bite me

Beautiful stuff.
