The Lyrics

England. World Cup. (Assuming we progress from the group stage)... We're going to extra time & penalties again, aren't we..?
Extra time may come
Here, but now it's gone
Germans don't fear the 'keeper
Nor Portuguese, Italians or Spain
We can be like they are

Come on, England! (don't fear the 'keeper)
You can take a pen' (don't fear the 'keeper)
Do I not like to cry (don't fear the 'keeper)
Penalties again

Ahh! la la, la, la
Ahh! la la, la, la

Extra time has come
Here, but now it's gone
Place the ball & don't forget
Or regret it for eternity (place the ball & don't forget)
1 in 4 in England play as amateurs (can place the ball & don't forget)
1 in 4 in England, though they're amateurs (know where the goal is)
1 in 4 in England practice everyday (you can be like they are)

Come on, England! (don't fear the 'keeper)
You can take a pen' (don't fear the 'keeper)
Do I not like to cry (don't fear the 'keeper)
Penalties again

Ahh! la la, la, la
Ahh! la la, la, la

Extra time had come
Here, but now it's gone
Came our last hope, a hero
'cos it was clear Harry couldn't go on

When the door was opened, so did he appear
The Ref'ree blew & then he appeared
The England flags flew when he appeared
& he wasn't afraid

Come on, England! (& he showed no fear)
& they ran to him (& we started to cry)
Behind a lion, a lioness (you can become like they are)
You converted your pen' (you will become like they are)
Come on, England! (don't fear the 'keeper)
© 2022 Grandpa (11.11.22) Since 2018, the UK music buying public have made their last 4 Xmas #1's, a parody. Often, especially a new artist, can announce their arrival with a particularly good cover, made uniquely their own. I'm no singer nor musician, so if you can perform this, or any of mine, please send me a version & lots of royalties!

I understand your pain Grandpa, hopefully they have moved on from their last failure, it's a crap way to go out. Good parody and timely. Have a look in on Monday, Merry & Pippin have a similar football-related parody being released for the World Cup.
