Don't mention the war
That's what football is for
In 1966 we were the winning team
We'd rather not discuss what happened in between
Don't mention the war
Just get out there and score
That glorious moment when the lions roar
Don't mention the war

Football - il bel gioco
Brazil and Mexico
You know we're gonna beat yer
We'll be sad to see you
Go! (Red card for time wasting)

Don't mention the World Cup!

Don't mention the war
That's what football is for
They might have bombed our chip shop sixty years ago
A billion pints of lager later - here we go!
Don't call them rude names
It's such a beautiful game
That glorious moment when the lions roar
Don't mention the war

It's unbelievable
There are no words to explain
The moon, over the moon
When we score and score again

Rule Britannia, the penalty's gone wide
Linesman with a little flag has ruled offside

Come on Engerland, we'll support you evermore
Come on Engerland, we'll support you evermore
Come on Engerland, we'll support you evermore

Don't mention the war
Bend that ball round the wall
Instead of saving Poland we are scoring goals
After 40 years of extra time and bacon rolls
Don't mention the war
That's what football is for
At the glorious moment when the lions roar
We must not mention, we will not mention
We might just mention the war!
