The Lyrics

England was hoping to win the Euros 55 years after last winning a major soccer trophy...but, as usual, they lost the penalty shoot-out!
WE'RE NOT THE CHAMPIONS

So what, we lost.
Tell me, what's new?
We tried our hardest,
But didn't come through.
But in the end,
We had a draw.
But when it came to the penalty kicks
We just couldn't score.

But we mean to go on and on and on...

We're not the champions this time;
The truth of it is, it's not a crime.
We're not the champions,
Though we're not champions,
We reached the final
And all of the players did us proud.

We've taken some knocks;
We're feeling quite low.
The players have done their best
And they know deep down there is
A long way to go.
There is no simple solution,
No easy way.
They should think it a challenge once more
In the hope
That they'll win it one day.

And they mean to go on and on and on...

We're not the champions this time;
The truth of it is, it's not a crime.
We're not the champions,
Though we're not champions,
We reached the final
And all of the players did us proud.

We're not the champions this time;
The truth of it is, it's not a crime.
We're not the champions,
Though we're not champions,
We reached the final
And all of the players did us proud.
