Go USA Against Japan

It is time in women’s soccer at the World Cup for a finals rematch
For the U.S. women to a revenge victory snatch
Up against the Japanese for all the marbles in Vancouver
Will the Japanese the strong U.S. defense be able to out maneuver?
Or will the U.S. continue its defensive trend
No goals allowed hopes of teams winning brought to a crushing end?
It seems like only yesterday at the Rose Bowl when Brandi Chastian in joy went to her knees
Ripped off her jersey to show her sports bra and let her victory emotions run free
Women will never capture public acclaim in rugby or American football
But after 1999 in soccer our woman stand, run and kick tall
Today is the birthday of one of our stars Megan Rapinoe
Another championship as a birthday gift the gods of soccer could bestow
Better yet for Abby Wambach who in goals in international matches is ahead
A last chance to win the World Cup rather than second place instead
Go U.S.A. today against Japan in the finals match
May our defense any chance of Japanese goals close the door and latch
