(Brett Favre starts by calling Pelé an old hack, someone who can't perform his job very well.)
Gonna need a refund of 4C and a Quarterback.
(The 2014 World Cup nearly cost 400 dollars but due to Pelé's poor raps. Brett wants a refund. He also uses a play on play words of Quarterback, which is a term in American Football as leaders of the offensive team, responsible for calling the play in the huddle.)
I'm as strong as a Viking so you better Escape to Victory,
(Brett was a part of The Vikings, Minnesota's Football team. He says he's as strong as an actual Viking and Pelé should retreat. Escape to Victory is a movie that Pelé starred in.)
my raps will be successful as my fourward charity!
(The Brett Favre Fourward Foundation was a charity through 96-97 that was a success. Favre compares his raps as successful as his charity work.)
I tackle down my foes, while you just have nice trips,
(A major difference in Europe and American Football is how they take care of their opponents. In American Football, a player would tackle them down to the ground, While in European Football, a player would just trip their opponent. Favre basically is saying his version of football is more dangerous then Pelé's.)
You should take a swim at The Green Bay or at least a dip.
(Brett was a part of The Green Bay Packers, name after Green Bay, Wisconsin. Favre says Pelé should relax and swim in The Green Bay or at least dip his toes into it.)
I take flight of a Falcon or perhaps a Jet,
(Brett was also a part of The Falcons and The Jets. Brett says he's fly, 70s term for cool, like a Falcon or a Jet which are things known to fly fast.)
You disadantage sports by kicking a ball into the net.
(While Brett tackles, throws, and runs yards to get a goal. Pelé just has to kick a ball into the net. Brett calls that a disadantage to sports.)
Please, the real football is what you call "soccer".
(Pelé denies Favre's verse and says what the real football is The European version and is what Americans call Soccer.)
Go back to shopping for shoes at The Foot Locker.
(Foot Locker is a store that contains sportswear and shoes. Pelé is saying Favre should go back and shop for shoes there.)
You were a superstar but ended up coaching a high school class,
(Brett Favre was big in the NFL but recently he's been coaching for Oak Grove High School. Pelé is saying this downfall happened because...)
When you texted Sterger about giving her a "Forward Pass".
(In 2010, Brett was sexting and left voicemails to Jenn Sterger, asking her to come to his hotel room, and explicit photos of himself. A Forward Pass is a term in Football but in here its saying Favre wants to have sex with her. Pelé is saying thats what lead to his downfall.
There's something about Marriage you just need to know,
(Along with this being a pun for There's Something About Mary, a film Favre appeared in,Pelé is telling him to stick to his marriage...)
Is to stick to your wife and get away from the hoes.
(Pelé is suggesting that Brett should stop sexting people and stick to the wife he has.)
But then you started drinking, which became much worse,
(Brett Favre also has a drinking problem which makes it less likable to redeem himself.)
Your breaking down Brett! Just call me The Madden Curse!
(Pelé is saying that like his life that Brett is gonna be breaking down. Pelé also compares himself to The Madden Curse. The Madden Curse is a supposed curse that any football player that appears on the cover of EA's Madden NFL Football will suffer high impact injury or bad luck. Brett Favre appeared in the 2009 cover of the game and tore a bicep and had to retire.)
