Best Football Song: Three Lions

In that event that England wins the World Cup, I’m trying to ready myself my learning the chorus of one of the most popular English football songs: Three Lions.

I think it’s bad news for the English game
We’re not creative enough, and we’re not positive enough
It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home…
(We’ll go on getting bad results, getting bad results..)
It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home
Everyone seems to know the score
They’ve seen it all before
They just know
They’re so sure
That England’s Gonna throw it away
Gonna blow it away
But I know they can play
‘Cause I remember…
Three Lions on a shirt
Jules Rimet still gleaming
Thirty years of hurt
Never stopped me dreaming
So many jokes, so many sneers
But all those oh-so-nears
Wear you down
Through the years
But I still see that tackle by Moore
And when Lineker scored
Bobby belting the ball
And Nobby Dancing
Three Lions on a shirt
Jules Rimet still gleaming
Thirty years of hurt
Never stopped me dreaming
(England have done it, in the last minute of extra time)
(What a save, good old England, England who couldn’t play football, England have got it in the bag )
I know that was then
But it could be again
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home
(England have done it)
It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home
Three Lions on a shirt
Jules Rimet still gleaming
Thirty years of hurt
Never stopped me dreaming

  1. I think your time would be better spent learning how to Samba.

  2. Touche, Andrew

  3. Ha, I lived in the UK when that song was first released and it even moved me, a non-footie fan.
    Thanks for the memory.
