The little ball,
Kicked by grown men around the field,
Chased by grown men around the field,
Watched by grown men around the field.

The little ball,
Chased for the sake of personal glory,
Chased for the sake of national pride,
Chased for a moment of triumph.

The little ball,
Its every move captured the audience's vision,
Its every move affected the audience's mood,
Its every move determined if Daddy is smiling to sleep tonight.

The little ball,
Little as it is,
Yet potent as it is,
Writing a country's glory and shame in the fame of the World Cup.
