The Lyrics

Cricket is now a la mode
Cricket is now a la mode
Cricket - wicket - picket - stick it
Cricket is now a la mode

Follow the series on the TV
Follow the England cricketing team
Follow follow follow follow
Follow the Engerland team

We've gone and won the Ashes
We've taken the ashes off Oz
The series was a whizz and the biz
And oh, how the biz it was
If ever oh ever the biz there was
Then beating of Oz
Is one because
Because because because because because
Because of the times that they've beaten uz
We've gone and won the Ashes
We've taken the ashes off Oz

Don't know anything about cricket, but the intro is priceless.

"Cricket is now a la mode"? So you put 'em on ice and you creamed 'em?

"With ice cream"? that's a definition of "a la mode" of which I wasn't previously aware... I was thinking more of dictionary.reference.com/search?q=a%20la%20mode (the bottom reference)

good parody Phil, but it would've been better if you didn't have that damn grin on your face, and if McGrath hadn't rolled his ankle on that damn cricket-ball - 555

Just because England won the ashes once in 1 years doesnt mean they can start sayin that they're better than the Aussies. great parody though! 555

Sean, you're absolutely right... but simply *because* we only win once in a blue moon, then the rare occasion when we do is definitely cause for a certain amount of celebration, wouldn't you agree?
