Three Lions 98 - Lightning Seeds

No estoy seguro, pero creo que esta es la canción que ponen este año en el anuncio de Digital + para promocionar la liga. A mi me encanta, me trae muchos recuerdos del verano que estuve en Londres, en el que pude disfrutar del espectáculo de ver los pubs ingleses llenos a rebosar de hooligans en su salsa, con cerveza y canticos. .

Aunque la canción inicialmente fue para la Eurocopa del 96 (Inglaterra)  yo la conocí, o al menos le cogí cariño, durante el mundial del 98 que se disputo en Francia.

La letra

“I think it’s bad news for the English game” (Alan Hansen)
“We're not creative enough; we're not positive enough” (Trevor Brooking)
It's coming home
It's coming home
It's coming
Football's coming home
“We'll go on getting bad results” (Jimmy Hill)
It's coming home
It's coming home
It's coming
Football's coming home
(x3)
Everyone seems to know the score
They've seen it all before
They just know
They're so sure
That England's gonna
throw it away
gonna blow it away
But I know they can play
Cos' I remember
Three lions on the shirt
Jules Rimet is still gleaming
30 years of hurt
never stopped me dreaming
So many jokes, so many sneers
but all those oh so nears
wear you down
through the years
But I still see that
tackle by Moore
and when Lineker scored
Bobby belting the ball
and Nobby dancing
Three lions on a shirt
Jules Rimet is still gleaming
30 years of hurt
never stopped me dreaming
“England have done it in the last minute of extra time!” (John Motson)
“What a save! Gordon Banks!” (David Coleman)
“Good old England, England that couldn´t play football”
“England have got it in the bag”
I know that was then
but it could be again
It's coming home
It's coming home
It's coming
Football's coming home
(x4)
Three lions on a shirt
Jules Rimet still gleaming
30 Years of hurt
never stopped me dreaming
