The Lyrics

This is about the upcoming Tour Of New Zealand, by the British Lions (starting June 4 2005 in Rotorua)
We Oh we ooh
We oh Wimoweh

A Wimoweh x 16

They come from England, they flew from England
The Lions land tonight
In New Zealand, Mighty New Zealand
The Lions Sleep Tonight

Oh we o Wimoweh x 2

Near the Village, The quiet village
The Lions sleep tonight
In the village, the peaceful village
The Lions sleep tonight

Oooh oooh We Oh Wimoweh x 2
Theyve come for a hiding, another hiding
The Lions meet The Blacks
Oooh, Oooh They've come to play
Oooh,Oooh la, la,la we o Wimoweh
Oh,Oh,Oh,Oh, We gonna have to pay

Ah, E, E, E, E, O What can I say
Ah, Ah,Ah,Ah, Ah, It ain't gonna be their day
(repeat and fade away)
