2000, and the Marlboro men
Did toil to win the F1 crown;
Indifferent were McLaren men,
And Williams were crap.

“Beware the ‘Macherwock my son!
The wheels that swerve, the feet that jump!
Beware the Ross Brawn call, and shun
The curious team orders!”

He took the FIA in hand:
Long time Ferrari’s crown he sought-
While rested he by the Rascasse wall,
And parked a while in shame.

And as he took another win,
The ‘Macherwork, with chin held high,
Leapt up upon the podium,
And fans groaned as he came!

One, two!  One, two!  With Barrichello
The FIA went clap, clap, clap!
With F1 dead, for months he led
With titles back to back.

You thought we’d killed the ‘Macherwock?
He’s never left, my foolish boy!
He’s back today!  Please don’t hooray!
He tested once last week.

2000, and the Marlboro men
Did toil to win the F1 crown;
Indifferent were McLaren men
And Williams were crap.
