The Lyrics

Fitting that the goal that sent the U.S. into the knockout stage of the World Cup was scored by a man named Donovan. But these referees, waving off good goals and putting out yellow and red cards for ridiculous reasons...
(instrumental opening)

The striker in my lineup
gets a goal, that's what it is.
The striker in my lineup
gets a goal, that's what it is.
First there is a scorin'
then there is no scorin'?
Then there is!

First there is a scorin'
then there is no scorin'?
Then there is!

Bradley's son and Donovan
they score to keep the U.S. in.
Bradley's son and Donovan
they score to keep the U.S. in.
First there is a scorin'
then there is no scorin'?
Then there is!

First there is a scorin'
then there is no scorin'?

Referee, yeah?
Referee, yeah?
Referee, yeah?
Has long, hard name.

Maurice Edu scored, ref is blind and did not see
and he lies but we're still inside.

The striker in my lineup
gets a goal, that's what it is.
The striker in my lineup
gets a goal, that's what it is.
Bradley's son and Donovan
they score to keep the U.S. in.
Bradley's son and Donovan
they score to keep the U.S. in.

Oh, my, my, my...

First there is a scorin'
then there is no scorin'?
Then there is!
First there is a scorin'
then there is no scorin'?
Then there is!
First there is a scorin'
then there is no scorin'?
Then there is!
First there is a scorin'
then there is no scorin'?
Then there is!
