SPORTCHESTRA! “We Want Beans Not Goals” (1988) lyrics

Remember Mexico ’86?
“Dirty” Diego, the Saint and Greaves
All covering up the cracks of an economic crisis
What the cameras don’t show the viewers won’t notice
Earthquake victims still in shacks

And 5,000 steelworkers given the sack
The protestors demanding beans not goals
The reality hidden as the spectacle prevails
Create a diversion, hide the real poverty
With pockets full of money, with stomachs still empty
