The #DHLLoveStorm Song – watch the DHL Stormers taken by surprise at the airport

Taking the DHL Stormers by surprise this Valentine’s morning, title sponsor and ultimate supporter of the beloved rugby team, DHL Express serenaded the team as they were flying out of Cape Town International Airport, en-route to their epic clash against the Lions in Johannesburg this weekend.

Rugby legend Jamie Roberts, who recently proposed to his girlfriend just before joining the Cape Town franchise, received a love-filled package from a DHL courier at Cape Town International Airport.  Before the team could even begin the expected good-natured ragging, the courier broke out in song, serenading both him and his teammates.

The lyrics were written for the players and designed to highlight their close camaraderie, individual antics and of course, the love they have for their partners.

Initially surprised, the DHL Stormers rapidly dissolved into laughter at the inside jokes about the ‘inseparable’ Ali Vermaak and Bongi Mbonambi; the ‘romeo’ Herschel Jantjies, Leggit (Dilyn Leyds) and many more.

The lyrics:

There’s a storm coming

A lalalala love storm 

While my heart is humming

Its made a storm of love for you.

Theres a storm coming

Alalala love storm

And while the guitar is strumming, 

I’ve got a storm of love for you.

Jamie, my baby, we’re finally tying the knot

Took long enough but I must say, I really got a shock

On the way to Heathrow, “marry me” you said

They say ‘romance’ is dying but I think its far from dead.

I think we could learn about keeping alive our spark

With inspiration from other loves like Bongi and Vermaak

I’ll love you till the end, I’ll never leave you, you’re my “mensch”

Just like Scarra’sKirsten, I could never leave you on the bench

Ill always have a home for you, a place for us to mould

Just like Leggit and Naz, no more sleeping separate in the cold.

You might not be as stylish as Senatla but wait !

I think we all agree he’s punching way above his weight,

You are my Stormers hero, you never fail to score,

Having said that nor does Herschel, mind you he’s the Romeo of Kylemore (wink wink).

Pickles is still single, but ill think he’ll be alright

With Bongi out the picture maybe tonights his lucky night (point to Vermaak)

There’s a storm coming

A lalalala love storm 

But No matter what you do

We’ll always love you

There’s a storm coming

A lalalala love storm 

And No matter what you do

We’ll always love you

No matter what you do, we’ll always love you

No matter what you do, we’ll always love you

No matter what you do, we’ll always love you

No matter what you do, we’ll always love you
