Sending in the Lions ( England Expects!)
With the world cup approaching more and more unofficial world cup anthems are coming thru our letter box, here is the latest one we received by a band called the OTT band.
In a nutshell this band is as lyrically competent as a young PJ and Duncan's (Ant and Dec) when they sung the 2002 world cup song entitled "On the ball". Although this is no Badiel and Skinner - Three lions (1996 or 1998) it is certainly more catchy than the official song "World at your feet" which sounds more like a Ballad and at least this can be shouted in the stands…
"Clap your hands … come on and sing…stamp your feet… were going to get the bling !"
or the line
"Cause we are sending in the lions , listen to the roar ! Its been forty years and we ain't waiting anymore !".
There is a myth surrounding football songs and World cup anthems. They can make or break a career, Ant and Dec lived on from their dreadful song and are now doing very well for themselves … I just hope that the career of this band can do the same!
The song was released on the 15th May , it can be downloaded from their website - www.ottband.co.uk , and listen out for it in a pub or world cup venue near you !
