Lionesses versus Nippon nippers

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We waited and we waited
Until the midnight hour struck
We cheered and we cheered
But then ran out of luck

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But wait, what’s this?
A bounceback of sorts
Steph wins a penalty
For the sisters in shorts

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But then calamity –
In the last minute of the game
The lucked out Laura Bassett
Ensures we’ll always remember her name

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They sure gave it their all
Now tears tumble as their fate is sealed
Yet pride for the Lionesses
For they left everything on the field

Notes

Respect to all the lady Lionesses, especially Laura Bassett, with that freakish og. Join the club Laura – it has happened to the best of us!

England Ladies did their country proud.
