Last Exit to Bronkhorstspruit Vol. 6: “Don’t Worry, Be Happy (a.k.a. ode to the whinelands)” – with apologies to Bobby McFerrin

Normally I don’t like to indulge in schadenfreude (much), but the amount of negative press surrounding the Sharks’ win over the weekend has forced my hand. Sure, the penalty try was contentious, but it’s not like it’s the first time that has ever happened. You win some, you lose some. The fact remains, in my eyes (which are admittedly not entirely free from bias), the Sharks were in the ascendancy for most of the game, winning the set pieces, bossing the collisions, and playing the moments that mattered better. So here’s a little light-hearted response to the naysayers out there.

Here’s a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
When you support Province you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy

CHORUS
Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry)
Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Be happy)
Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry, be happy)
Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry)
Ooh oo-ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh
(Be happy)
Ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh
(Don’t worry, be happy)

Losing Eddie Jones must seem a godsend
Because now you’ve got a coach who is a legend
Don’t worry, be happy
The victory eluded you
And now your mood matches your outfit – blue
Don’t worry, be happy
(Look at me I’m happy)

CHORUS

Can’t score tries, can’t lose with grace
Schalk Burger has a sour face
But don’t worry, be happy
‘Cause Kaplan’s having a hissy fit
He doesn’t like Reinach even a little bit
So don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry, be happy now

CHORUS

Now there, is this song I wrote
I hope you learned it note for note
Like good little children
Don’t worry, be happy
Listen to what I say
In your life expect some trouble
Because the Sharks burst your bubble
Don’t worry, be happy

CHORUS

  • sugested additional line.

    Evertime Kaplan sees the Sharks,
    He sees Warren Britzs,
    Thats enough to give him the shits.
    Don’t worry Kappy
    be happy.

  • @Ice (Comment 7) : Hope Fleckie has got time to review if the Sharks were scrumming illegally , and he can have a look at what shenanigans the Sharks were pulling in the line outs as well.

  • @The hound (Comment 6) : So you reckon the way to get Kaplans goat is by dangling Warren Britz in front of him.

  • Jus, but the whinelands have been whining a lot over this one.
    Obviously the higher the expectations, the greater the humble pie, it seems.
    And all the usual excuses are doing the rounds on news24 and that OTHER rugby site.
    But I’m always intrigued by the whole ‘ we play beautiful attractive rugby and then these thugs pitch up and drag us down to their level.’
    Shut your whine-holes. You’ve been bandying that one around for 20 years now. Not every team that beats you is down to brute luck and not every loss you endure is a moral victory, you bunch of scribbling, hair-gelling naff-paffs.
