For the members of the U.S. Soccer
Team, who played great in some tough conditions.
They made us proud to be Americans.
Inspired by the song from—who else?—Donovan.
Sunshine crashed loudly through the goalpost windows,
Repeatedly streaking past stunned goalies
In the final minutes, stealing their hopes
Of easy victory. Domination
Takes time—we know it—but in a short while
Our sunshine supermen will show their style
‘Cause they’ve made their minds up—the World Cup trophy
Will one day be ours. Won’t that blow the minds
Of the others who’ve looked down on our efforts?
We’ll soon be there, on the world football scene
Standing tall… Won’t that blow their little minds?
