I see you standing there in line
I hear the things they say
They slag you off and yell “Pick me!”
While you just wait and pray.
I see the biggest, best boys smirk
And join one captain’s team
They still believe that girls like you
Can’t have a football dream.
And that’s why you’re the last one picked
This scene is far from new
“And then they’ll put you in defence”
I guess. Of course, they do.
Whoever you are, I’m on your side
I see myself out there
I can tell that you’re a striker
But the boys don’t know or care.
I’m glad you just ignore them
And still put the ball in the net
‘Cause girl, your sport is on the up
Though the boys don’t know it yet.
For now, throw all those taunts right back
And maybe you’ll go far
Got to be a star here to get any respect
And I smile, ’cause I see you are.
