"Aaaaaaaah Oooooour!
Aaaaaaaah Oooooour!" is
Victoria Azarenka's battle cry.

Banshee girls shrieking
In the dead of a
Brisbane night.
All to distract opponents.

Death-defying cries
Ring out in the dead of night,
Banshee girls cheating.

Banshee girls cheating
Distracting their opponents,
On the tennis court.

A question I must ask:
Do banshees play tennis?
Or just girl players?

I once heard a banshee shriek
It scared me half as much,
As shrieking tennis girls.

Shriek and shriek again
Banshee girls on tennis courts,
Distracting their opponents.

Banshees shrieking at night
Out on the tennis court.
Or are they women players?

Billy Jean King, Margaret Court,
Evonne Goolagong, didn't shriek.
Why do the young breed need to?
