I created this song to celebrate England Women Football Team’s triumph in the Euro 2022 tournament. It is the first time England has the won a major footballing tournament since 1966 and the first ever time for the women’s game. This is my tribute to the Lionesses’ incredible achievement.
I created the music and lyrics.

While we were frying in July
In prowls the Lionesses
Fighting with the best and brightest
The stage is set, the games begin
Say, can you hear the people sing?!
The stadium’s roaring
With a Continental din.
Then why, can this Lioness pride fly?
What takes their game above ‘just try’?
Who lifts their eyes towards the sky?
In Wiegman we trust
In Wiegman we’re treated
Cause under Wiegman we’re undefeated Earps is/Mary’s a must
And Mead’s golden-booted
England, it’s coming home.
In Game 1, Austria, they had a go
But the England team said, no!
Mead scored the only goal
And Stanway ran the show
In Game 2, Norway couldn’t close the door
The England forwards wanted more
Beth Mead bagged a hattrick
Eight nil the final score
In Game 3, Northern Ireland, tried to survive
But Russo took her chances
Another win as England scored five
In the Quarters, Spanish passing was sublime
One goal down, but Bright denied them any more
And Stanway’s screamer won the tie
In the Semis, Sweden kept it at stalemate
Until Mead turned on a plate
Kirby was top class
And Russo’s flick so great
Got Bronze, and now they’re for the gold
Taking on the best of foes
Will they play or will they fold?!
In the Final, Germany were without Popp But that didn’t stop their team
From slowing England in their tracks.
Walsh was the architect supreme
When Toone’s super-scoop succeeded
Kelly scored the winner
Completing the dream!
And now, that the tournament is won
What next for Wiegman’s girls?
Well, hold on,
Cause they’re taking on the world!
