  • Lyrics
  • We still believe
    We still believe
    We still believe

    It's coming home
    It's coming home
    It's coming

    Football's coming home
    Tears for heroes dressed in grey
    No plans for final day
    Stay in bed

    Drift away
    It could have been all
    Songs in the street
    It was nearly complete

    It was nearly so sweet
    And now I'm singing
    Three lions on a shirt
    Jules Rimet still gleaming

    No more years of hurt
    No more need for dreaming
    Talk about football coming home
    And then one night in Rome

    We were strong
    We had grown
    And now I see
    Ince ready for war

    Gazza good as before
    Shearer certain to score
    And Psycho screaming
    Three lions on a shirt

    Jules Rimet still gleaming
    No more years of hurt
    No more need for dreaming
    We can dance Nobby's dance

    We could dance it in France
    It's coming home
    It's coming home
    Football's coming home...Writer/s: DAVID BADDIEL, FRANK SKINNER, IAN BROUDIE
