  • Lyrics
  • 5SOS drummer Ashton Irwin wrote this song with lead singer Michael Clifford and their producers, Rick Parkhouse and George Tizzard. The song is about an unforgettable affair: Irwin and Clifford came up with the idea when they were travelling to Bournmouth. Irwin started thinking about a soccer chant, and came up with the title. Clifford explained: "We were jamming around with a bass riff, then Ashton did the chant thing and it sounded great."
