Najlepšia pesnička o futbale – Football’s Coming Home

Rok 1996, v lete odštartujú Majstrovstvá sveta Európy. Ich dejiskom bude Anglicko. Futbal sa vracia domov. Anglický futbal po semifinálovej prehre na Majstrovstvách sveta v Taliansku roku 1990, s kým iným ako Nemeckom po penaltách, zažíva zlé obdobie. Na Majstrovstvá sveta 1994 v USA sa ani nekvalifikovali. Rok 1996 má byť preto bodom obratu. Miesto Linekera v útoku vyvádza Shearer. V strede poľa McManaman a Gascoigne, v bráne Seaman.

Nádeje domácich fanúšikov však končia tak ako zvyčajne. V semifinále, s Nemeckom, na penalty. História sa opakuje a Anglicko na trofej musí stále čakať.

Po ME 1996 nám však zostal aj asi najlepší futbalový song histórie. Three Lions ((Football’s Coming Home) je perfektnou zhudobnenou ukážkou britského humoru a sebairónie. Nič lepšie o futbale som odvtedy nepočul. Pozrite si aj video, stojí za to.

Football’s coming home

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

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 still gleaming
Thirty years of hurt
Never stoppped me dreaming

So many jokes, so many jeers
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 still gleaming
Thirty years of hurt
Never stopped me dreaming

[spoken]
John Motson: England have done it in the last minute of extra time!
David Coleman: What a save! Gordon Banks!
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
Football’s coming home

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

[spoken]
John Motson: England have done it

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

(It’s coming home)
Three lions on a shirt (It’s coming home)
(It’s coming)
Jules Rimet still gleaming (Football’s coming home)
(It’s coming home)
Thirty years of hurt (It’s coming home)
(It’s coming)
Never stopped me dreaming (Football’s coming home)

(It’s coming home)
Three lions on a shirt (It’s coming home)
(It’s coming)
Jules Rimet still gleaming (Football’s coming home)
(It’s coming home)
Thirty years of hurt (It’s coming home)
(It’s coming)
Never stopped me dreaming (Football’s coming home)

(It’s coming home)
Three lions on a shirt (It’s coming home)
(It’s coming)
Jules Rimet still gleaming (Football’s coming home)
(It’s coming home)
Thirty years of hurt (It’s coming home)
(It’s coming)
Never stopped me dreaming (Football’s coming home)
