    I had always heard he wrote that song for his friend, Billie Jean King, who

    thats my understanding , although I also associate it with roller derby I don't remember why though

    Before I heard it was a tribute to Billie Jean King,
    I always associated it with Independence Day and maybe Ben Franklin. LOL.
