Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

U.S.A. football!
Cheering, "Go Panthers!"
Wait, there's no helmets
What's the World Cup?
And why does it matter?

Footy fans worldwide
Guess they're all watching
Here, it's the silliest
We think it blows
Amusing at most, yeah

We'd shut it off
Ideally
But we block it all
On TiVo

NBA finals on, on
Why watch soccer all day, eh?
Worldly? Not at all; Isolated
But hey, who gives a f*ck?

FIFA arenas? Eh, heh.
Soccer, soccer? Eh, eh.
Sorry, everyone, couldn't give a...
Cause we're America

I watched a match once
Infinite boredom
Poured myself wine
Of course, by halftime
I'd gone through four bottles

People elated
How do they fake it?
Pure ADD while
Viewing these homely
Men in formation

Though shaven legs
Are creepy
Their shorts are très
Revealing...

Beckham's burly bod? GOAL! GOAL!
"Dude, you watch? Are you gay?" Hey!
Yeah, our soccer squad's like a bad bra:
No cups and no support

Soccer following? No way
Shocking, all this heyday
Volleyball would be more galvanic
Or Amish softball

Our team's awful, why stay, eh?
When it's over? Eight days?!
Gotta bomb all those vuvuzelas

...Wait, where's South Africa?

Couldn't agree with you more. Some good lines in here such as: "No cups and no support", "Amish softball", "Of course by halftime. I'd gone through four bottles". I'm surprised that you didn't parody all of that jibberish at the end of the song lol

Better hit that mute button Emi 'cause here come fifteen interminably-long-monotonously-droning-but-curiously-uplifting toots of my spittle-laden Chucky G-flat vuvuzela for this tasty bit o' Ameripan'a

Genius! I'm suprised this hasn't been parodied more, and this is an excellent idea!

Catchy OS--tune not the lyrics. You've mirrored my sentiments in your parody.

As I've told TT and Guy, welcome back, EmiLoca! Nice to see you writing again! Hope you stay on AIR for awhile (same with Guy and TT, too!) Yeah, I got into watching the World Cup 2010 for awhile and after awhile it got boring. Well, here you scored 555 goals for this one!

I'm with you Emi - soccer sucks and the fans are violent. One game had a rumble in the stands and over 215 fans were KILLED! I saw this on TRU TV on the "Most Shocking" series.

I'll take baseball - it's a lot safer when all you really have is organized loitering. Lots of great lines like no cups no support.

I think I've watched maybe 5 minutes of soccer before I fell asleep. I am so out of it with this sport all I know is that some idiot broadcaster yells GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL and I think that means someone did something good. I did get the GOAL GOAL ref in your parody but would someone please explain to me what ezactly in 25 words or less is "vuvuzelas"? nice write Emi.

Guy: It's a skinny trumpet. Didn't know it either until I did a Wikipedia search. Nice brains there Emi.

Thanks buddy - it is all so clear now, I think =;-) . Why didn't I Google that word? I seem to Google everything else that I don't know.

Thank you Matthias, TJC, Abbott, John, Christie, Guy and TT. I... guess the USA won today. *Donovan's foot in Emi's mouth*

This is the best parody of this song I've seen yet. The "bad bra" line was great! So was the rest of it. I applaud you. Literally. I clapped.
