Three Lions Song: What are the full lyrics to the song ‘Football’s Coming Home’ and when was England’s iconic anthem released?

England are hoping to go all the way at Euro 2024 and an iconic anthem will once again be the soundtrack to their success.

“Three Lions” was first popularized in the late 90s, but has since found a new place as the song of choice for a new generation of English fans.

“It’s Coming Home” was a phrase coined over 20 years ago.

David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and The Lightning Seeds first teamed up to create the sound of Euro 96 after releasing their track in May.

Germany captain Jurgen Klinsmann, who helped engineer a semi-final win over England en route to tournament glory, even told talkSPORT that his country loved the song so much he sang it to celebrate .

Nearly three decades on, loudspeakers across the country will still be blaring it as Gareth Southgate’s men fight for glory in Germany.

The title is linked to the Three Lions on England’s badge, while the 30-year injury was linked to the country’s success at the 1966 World Cup.

The tune was re-recorded as the unofficial anthem for the 1998 World Cup, but found a revival 20 years later at the 2018 World Cup.

Since then, England fans have used it to cheer on Harry Kane and co. at Euro 2020, at the World Cup in Qatar, and now this summer.

“Three Lions” has been rewritten several times since its release, including one with a Christmas twist before the Winter World Cup.

But with the lyrics returning to the original for Euro 2024 this month, here’s a reminder on how to sing…

Lyrics of the Three Lions

He’s going home,
It’s coming home, it’s coming,
Football is coming home.

He’s going home,
​It’s coming home, it’s coming,
Football is coming home.

He’s going home,
​It’s coming home, it’s coming,
Football is coming home.

He’s going home,
​It’s coming home, it’s coming,
Football is coming home.

Everyone seems to know the score,
They’ve already seen it all,
They just know, they’re so sure
This England will throw it away, will blow it up
But I know they can play.

Because I remember three lions on a shirt!
Jules Rimet always radiant,
Thirty years of suffering
It never stopped me from dreaming.

So many jokes, so many snickers,
But all these “oh so close”
Wearing yourself out, over the years,
But I still see that Moore tackle
And when Lineker scored,
Bobby belts the ball
And Dancing Chicard.

Three lions on a shirt!
Jules Rimet always radiant,
Thirty years of suffering
It never stopped me from dreaming.

I know that was the case then, but it might be the case again.

He’s going home,
​It’s coming home, it’s coming,
Football is coming home.

He’s going home,
​It’s coming home, it’s coming,
Football is coming home.

He’s going home,
​It’s coming home, it’s coming,
Football is coming home.

He’s going home,
​It’s coming home, it’s coming,
Football is coming home.

Three lions on a shirt!
Jules Rimet always radiant,
Thirty years of suffering
It never stopped me from dreaming.

Three lions on a shirt!
Jules Rimet always radiant,
Thirty years of suffering
It never stopped me from dreaming.

Three lions on a shirt!
Jules Rimet always radiant,
Thirty years of suffering
It never stopped me from dreaming.
