What are the lyrics to England’s Southgate chant?

The chant famously swarmed the nation when the Three Lions were preparing for their first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

Southgate was hailed as a masterstroke throughout the tournament, taking another ‘accolade’ in having his own song.

The lyrics to it are: “Looking back on when we first met, I cannot escape and I cannot forget…

“Southgate you’re the one, you still turn me on, football’s coming home again.”

What have Atomic Kitten said about the chant?

Southgate’s new song comes from the 2001 tune ‘Whole Again’ by Atomic Kitten.

The girl group has disbanded and gotten back together several times over the years, with Natasha Hamilton and Liz McClarnon currently fronting for them.

And since the chant has come spread throughout England fans, Atomic Kitten have been trending on various streaming sites, including Apple Music.

McClarnon and Hamilton have been overwhelmed by the group’s latest fame, with the latter even hinting that the Southgate version of their song will be added to their setlist.
