Chumbawamba – Desmond Lynam's Sports Trivia lyrics

From the heights of Montezuma to the shores of Sicily
From the rainplains of Africa
Across the shining sea
From the East to the West
From the rainforests to the dustbowls
It's bigger than Jesus
Bigger than Rock & Roll
What is it?
You can love it or loathe it
But you can't get away from it
It's played, watched, and talked about all over the world
From the backstreets of Naples
To the docklands of Hull
It's bigger than Jesus
Bigger than Rock & Roll
What is it?
Livingstone and Stanley were sitting in a hut
In the African jungle, talking and stuff
About how they'd discovered this big continent
How they'd dared to go where no-one else went
When out of the bush came this skinny little kid
And what was he wearing? A Liverpool strip!
He had an nfl helmet and some brand new cricket boots
A packet of questions from Trivial Pursuit
Q: What happened when Rugby Union minnows Shirley Wanderers went to Twickenham?
A: They stole a set of goal posts after an international!
