Default (un)official world cup song

Let's see all the hands raised in unison
The balls in the back of the net, come on son
Likely lads running out the pub to warn you
Keeper knocked it out of play and Becks has stepped up to the corner
Oooooooh

When are we going, when are we going
when we going when we going when we going
When are we going, when are we going
when we going when we going when we going to win the cup
(06)

Front line attacking bet the Germans remember this
The defiance of the British and they know that we cannot miss
This is the best one up against the Germans we've ever had
Since my great Grandad shot their great Grandads

When are we going, when are we going
when we going when we going when we going
When are we going, when are we going
when we going when we going when we going to win the cup
(06)



I was bored and footy anthems are being played everywhere. So I thought I'd create my own. Bit out of taste, but I think it beats the rest of the **** out there. Especially the official Embrace piece of **** one.

That's the kind of new football song we need more of! National slurs and cheap shots at the Germany (if you pardon the pun).

The Embrace song is not that bad as a band song, but its rubbish as a football singalong.

I think that the main lyric "when are we going to win the cup" isn't so good though, because its not aggressive or arrogant enough. My favourite footy chant is the "You're shit, aaaaaaaaaaah!", which is great because its simple, nasty, arrogant and direct.

Here's my attempt - sung approximately the tune of "Little Jesus, Sweetly Sleep", minus the crappy phrase which holds the song up (if you know the song, you'll probably know which one I mean):

Germany may play at home
But the outcome we all know
We will thrash you, thrash you, thrash you
We will thrash you, thrash you, thrash you
We'll crack your shins with no regrets
And put the ball inside your net

Other teams, they have no chance
Against the mighty England (sung as Ing-ger-land. you know the drill...)
We will thrash you, thrash you, thrash you
We will thrash you, thrash you, thrash you
See us stitch your keepers up
Our name's written on the cup

EDIT: Sorry if I'm nicking your thread here Hobo!, but this can be a football anthem thread!

Bring on Italy, France and Brazil,
They'll try their best, but we'll win through,
Come on Ing-ger-land.

Fat Frank gives the ball to Becks,
Easy, easy,
He crosses the ball and Rooney nets,
Easy, easy goal.

Easy, easy goal,
Easy, easy goal.
He crosses the ball and Rooney nets,
Easy, easy goal.

When we win the World Cup,
We'll get pissed up,
And sing this song to you,
We're gonna sing all night,
We're gonna sing all day,
Two World Wars and two World Cups,
Come on Ing-ger-land.

Come on Ing-ger-land, come on Ing-ger-land,
Two World Wars and two World Cups,
Come on Ing-ger-land.

That's the best I got.
