The Lyrics

The writing of this song was started during the Soccer World Cup 2002. One day it just struck me that The Borg in Star Trek could be seen as a metaphor for The English National Football Team´s achievements in those events. The Borg always seems to be invincible before the fight starts, but in the end they always loose against The Enterprise or Voyager, just like the English always seems to loose against Germany or Brazil. Both The Borg and The English also has a Queen as their front figure! (And do I dare mention the word "square"? *smiles*). Well, thanks to this, now they also have an anthem to bind them together, because the original was The English Team´s anthem during the World Cup in Italy 1990.
Expand ourselves
Conquer all space
You know you can´t win
Just give up your race

We´ll beat Picard
Take him on
We never give up
We´re coming strong

Expand ourselves
We´re coming strong
Expand ourselves
We´re all for one

Expand ourselves
We´re coming strong
When somethings good
We´ll take it on

We Borg got our cubes in motion
And you know what we will do
We Borg got our cubes in motion
And you best believe it´s true

Seven of Nine
Was taken away
We´re coming for her
Don´t stand in our way

Don´t resist
Make our day
Come be a drone, or
We´ll blow you away

Expand ourselves
We´re coming strong
Expand ourselves
We´re all for one

Expand ourselves
We´re coming strong
When somethings good
We´ll take it on

We Borg got our cubes in motion
And you know what we will do
We Borg got our cubes in motion
And you best believe it´s true

Resistance is futile, we say
But we know that you will try
Resistance is futile, we say
Just give up, you don´t have to die

(Drones Rapping):

You´ll try to draw a line
And do it here and now
You can be gay or whine
We´ll get you anyhow
We´ll always shoot at and hurt you
Adapt and attack
There is no stopping us
´Cos we´ll be coming back
Just stop us if you can
And our masterplan
´Cos if you let us through
You´ll change to drone from man
We are the quadrant´s best
We´ll put you full of probes
Three cables down your chest
High voltage in your lobes

We´re in a collective (COLL-EC-TIVE)
Our Queen is a hun´
We love our collective (COLL-EC-TIVE)
Assimilation is going on

We´re in a collective (COLL-EC-TIVE)
Our Queen is a hun´
We love our collective (COLL-EC-TIVE)
Assimilation is going on

---Repeat chorus two more times---

Thanx cuanaD. Did you find this "oldie" while searching for the lyrics to the/this Soccer Championship original? I don´t remember seeing your name before. If you´re a general Soccer fan you might also apprechiate my parody "Beckham´s been cheating on his wife":

There are also other parodies about Soccer or ditto teams, you´ll probably find them via the search function. Enjoy!
