The Lyrics

ALTERNATIVE WORLD CUP ANTHEM


SING US A SONG FOR ENGERLAND

(You can Sing this to Piano Man by Billy Joel)

It's 3 o'clock on a Saturday
And I "m talking to someone called Sid
He's the old guy sitting next to me
He's been comin since he was a kid

He says son, I've got so many memories
of glorious games we have won
back then how could we fail
with the wind in our sails
boy did we have our place in the sun

Let's sing us a song for Engerland
Sing us a song today
We're all in the mood for a victory
Cos we're gonna blow them away


I remember those great days at Wembley
Nothing sweeter than winning as host
We invented this game and it's been such a shame
Its so hard when you're pipped at the post

He said Joe I believe this is killing me."
But I'm broke and it's too much to pay
I'would love to go with you to Germany
And be there when they win the day

I said Sid all your troubles are over
I know just how you feel
But I must stay with my lady she's havin my baby
If you'll go in my place it's a deal

He just stared he could hardly believe it
He was gobsmacked and over the moon
It could be his last chance to be there for the lads
When they bring home the World Cup in June

Let's sing us a song for Engerland
Sing us a song today
We're all in the mood for a victory
Cos we're gonna blow them away

I said do it for me out in Germany
I'll be with you in spirit you know
They'll play out of their skins this is their time to win
Game on now we're ready to go

And our song it will ring round the terraces
Filling hearts full of joy and of pride
And they'll put them away cos they know how to play
Are you comin along for the ride


sing us a song for Engerlad
sing us a song today
we're all in the mood for victory
and we're gonna blow them away
