Ant & Dec – On The Ball lyrics

They thought it was all over, but it's only just begun,
The cup of eastern promise in the land of the Rising Sun.
Seemed a million miles away, and one thing's for sure,
The talk begins of '66 'cos we havn't found a cure.
Send an SOS, a country's in need,
Sven's the man who's got a plan- we've found a super Swede.
A nation reunited, and England comes alive,
Goldenballs is captain, and Heskey makes it five!

We're on the ball, we're on the ball,
We're on the ball, we're on the ball.
We're on the ball, we're on the ball,
We're on the ball, We're on the ball.

White will be the colors, the whole world in our hands,
The time has come to kick it- can we kick it? Yes we can!
Sven's army marching forward, hear three lions roar,
We're England for ever, now all together- we're on the ball!


What do you think of the song Motty?
Oh fantastic!
Is it gonna be a hit?
Yes it is!

It's Neville to Campell, Campell to Rio,
Rio to Scholsey, Scholsey- Gerrard.
Gerrard to Beckham, Beckham to Heskey,
Heskey to Owen, its a goal, 5-1!

Unless it goes to penalties, are we getting the Germans?
We're on the ball, who's on that ball?
We're on the ball, we're on the ball.
Even though we're small, we're on the ball!

"Can I have my ball back please?"
