"Hey Domingo!" (also known as "The World Cup Song"[1] and later "Don't Let My Heart Down") is a Weezer demo.

Overview

The song is generally well-liked by fans, and it was one of the finalists for the Albumsix "Album 5 Demos survivor" thread. The song is most likely inspired by the 2002 World Cup, held in Korea and Japan. Daegu (South Korea) is mentioned in the song, as it was one of the cities where World Cup games were held. Rivers Cuomo, an avid soccer fan, would reference the World Cup and Soccer in the later songs "My Day is Coming" and "Represent".

This song also shares the same COR number as "Peace", written a few months later, which suggests that song was a later version of "Hey Domingo!". The song's guitar riff also somewhat resembles that of the song "The Dawn".

Lyrics

One million people congregating
Fillin’ up the Daegu streets
They're joining in the celebration
Hey, Domingo can’t be beat

Each body looks just like the last one
twenty-one through twenty-five
Pity for you if you don’t belong here
Solidarity is nice.

One voice united for the purpose
One voice to rise above the others
In the rage
Where is the rage?
Oh, is it the same?
Where is the rage?
Is it the same?
Where is the rage?
