Lorde's "Team" remade as soccer anthem

The hype of Lorde's "Royals" has died down, but a Minnesota-bred comedian is still making us laugh with the music. After skewering "Royals" and Hopkins High in January, Molly Dworsky is back with a soccer-themed parody of "Team" just in time for World Cup fever.

"I heard from a third party that [Lorde] heard and liked the last one," Dworsky tells City Pages. This time, she plays up her Lorde-like looks in the dark scenes similar to the original song's video, and follows a storyline unfolding on the playing field.

Dworsky calls herself "Scorde" in "(Soccer) Team," and follows the moody melody of Lorde's "Team." She sings about two young teams struggling to win. One preteen can't quite seem to get the game (there was always that kid) and another intense competition is on the sidelines courtesy of the soccer moms and dads. Whether you were the weak link or not, this video leave you craving an orange slice.

"(Soccer) Team" Lyrics:

Wait til you're announced

We've all put on our game faces

The fans will stay in stands

Referee's in place, it's time to

Send the ball out

Call all the Jaybirds out

They're in the blue jerseys

Nine pairs of matching shorts

Nine pairs of various cleats

Now bring my Bears in

Their shinguards waiting to be used

Be used to shield from another

And prevent a big bruise

Dribbin' toward the halfway line

Dribblin' toward an orange slice, woah

Even, zero-zero, we really dig halftime

We have a weak link, next year she'll be thirteen

Too late to rethink putting her in charge of defending

She tried to boot it, but kicking's harder than it seems

Scored a goal, but we're on each other's team

I'm kinda over getting scolded for my hands up in the air

So there

Our midfield gains control

Jaybirds back on our feet

Swig from waterbottle

And everyone's competing

To be number one in the league

Of course it's fun, but we love winning

We have a weak link, next year she'll be thirteen

Too late to rethink putting her in charge of defending

She tried to boot it, but kicking's harder than it seems

Scored a goal, but we're on each other's team

I'm kinda over yelling "Open!" when my teammates never share

No fair

I'm feeling bolder cuz I get now that the goal is over there

No, there

We have a weak link, next year she'll be thirteen

Too late to rethink putting her in charge of defending

She tried to boot it, but kicking's harder than it seems

Scored a goal, but we're on each other's team

Stuck on each other's team

Scored a goal, but

We're on each other's team

Stuck on each other's team
Scored a goal
