Leave It To The Women

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 sometimes you feel the real hope lies
with those who seek a deeper prize
they play with fire in their eyes
and passion that you can’t disguise
let’s leave it to the women

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 they stand for whatever we deem
to be the true Olympic dream
a low-paid earnest melded team
who have no fear for football’s cream
let’s leave it to the women

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 who do not say ‘I cannot play’
then star in friendlies the next day
who give their all the female way
and stun us with their bold display
let’s leave it to the women

Team GB 3 Cameroon 0 28.7.12
