To the land of opportunity
Apple pie and Coco cola
Went a blue eyed blonde from Germany
Well versed in falling over.
He’s a gaffer now of a soccer team
We’ve taken to our hearts
Living the American dream
Of success from a humble start.
Last evening during a World Cup tie
Against a promising Belgie team
We watched da side of da wunder guy:
Play with an incredible self belief.
Belgie really struggled
To break America down
an often were out muscled
As their opponents wore them out.
The art called positive thinking
We ridicule on occasion
Seems to me to be the link
For the American transformation.
This approach is really refreshing
Nowadays rarely seen or used
They play with the confidence that ignorance brings
So they’re not afraid to lose.
Yeah it’s pretty simple way to play
But look what they achieved?
You’ll rarely see them in a game
Where they look like they’ll get beat.
So the Belgians may have won the game
To rightfully progress through
But they were on occasion outplayed by the USA
Who were simply not afraid to lose.
