We’ve all heard England fans chanting ‘It’s coming home’ since Gareth Southgate’s side started looking like serious contenders for the European Championships.

Three Lions has been a popular song since it was released by David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and The Lightning Seeds in 1996.

But fast forward 25 years and there’s a new song that’s grabbed fans’ attention – this time by Atomic Kitten.

A video of the girl group singing the unofficial Gareth Southgate-version of Whole Again at a London venue went viral – and the band has just released it.

More than 20 years have now passed since the pop trip hit the top spot with the track that saw their career sky rocket and went onto sell over a million copies, The Chronicle reports.

The re-imagining of the 00s classic quickly caught on on the terraces and in fan zones across the country and, after it’s returned once again for Euro 2020, Atomic Kitten’s Natasha Hamilton, Liz McLarnon and Jenny Frost reunited to hastily record a new version ahead of England’ s semi against Denmark.

Reworked lyrics including “if you see me sitting in the stand” rather than the original “if you see me with another man.”

The full lyrics to the song – and five other popular tunes among England fans – can be found below.

Lyrics to Atomic Kitten’s Whole Again (Gareth Southgate version)

If you see me walking down the street
Staring at the sky
And dragging my two feet
You just pass me by
It still makes me cry
But football’s coming home again


And if you see me in the stands
I’m laughing and I’m joking
Doing what I can
I won’t put you down
‘Cause I want you around
Football’s coming home again

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


Time is laying heavy on my heart
Seems I’ve got too much of it
Since we’ve been apart
My friends make me smile
If only for a while
Football’s coming home again


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


For now I have to wait
But this is our time
It is our fate
‘Cause I just can’t go on
It’s already been too long
Football’s coming home again
Oh, oh, oh, oh


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
Oh, oh, oh
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


Southgate, you’re the one – you still turn me on
Football’s coming home again

Three Lions’ by David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and the Lightning Seeds

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home (we’ll go getting bad results)

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

Everyone seems to know the score
They’ve seen it all before
They just know
They’re so sure

That England’s gonna throw it away
Gonna blow it away
But I know they can play
‘Cause I remember

Three Lions on a shirt
Jules Rimet still gleaming
Thirty years of hurt
Never stopped me dreaming

So many jokes, so many sneers
But all those oh-so-nears
Wear you down
Through the years

But I still see that tackle by Moore
And when Linekar scored
Bobby belting the ball
And Nobby Dancing

Three Lions on a shirt
Jules Rimet still gleaming
Thirty years of hurt
Never stopped me dreaming

(What a save, Gordon Banks!
(Good old England, England that couldn’t play football)
(England have got it in the bag)
I know that was then but it could be again

It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home (England has done it)

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

It’s coming home
It’s coming home
It’s coming
Football’s coming home

Three Lions on a shirt (it’s coming home, it’s coming)
Jules Rimet still gleaming (football’s coming home, it’s coming home)
Thirty years of hurt (it’s coming home, it’s coming)
Never stopped me dreaming (football’s coming home)

Three Lions on a shirt (it’s coming home, it’s coming)
Jules Rimet still gleaming (football’s coming home, it’s coming home)
Thirty years of hurt (it’s coming home, it’s coming)
Never stopped me dreaming (football’s coming home)

Three Lions on a shirt (it’s coming home, it’s coming)
Jules Rimet still gleaming (football’s coming home, it’s coming home)
Thirty years of hurt (it’s coming home, it’s coming)
Never stopped me dreaming (football’s coming home)

Jerusalem by Fat Les

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England’s mountain green
And was the holy Lamb of God
In England’s pleasant pastures seen!

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark Satanic Mills?

Bring me my Bow of burning goal
Bring me my Arrows of desire
Bring me my Spear: O Clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!

I will not cease from Mental Fight
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand
Until we have built Jerusalem
In England’s green and pleasant land
Until we have built Jerusalem
In England’s green and pleasant land

We’re on the Ball by Ant and Dec

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 ’cause we haven’t found a cure

Send an SOS, a country’s in need
Sven’s the man, he’s got a plan, we’ve found a super Swede
A nation re-united and England comes alive
Golden balls 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

Red, white and blue, 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 forever, now altogether, 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
We’re on the ball

Over the wall, and into the net! David Beckham has done it!
What do you think of the song Motty?
Oh fantastic song
Is it gonna be a hit?
Yes it is!
Cambell to Rio, he’s in the middle

It’s Neville to Cambell (we’re on the ball)
Cambell to Rio (we’re on the ball)
Rio to Scholesy (we’re on the ball)
Scholesy Gerrard (we’re on the ball)
Gerrard to Beckham (we’re on the ball)
Beckham to Heskey (we’re on the ball)
Heskey to Owen, to Nodd (five one)
(We’re on the ball)

It’s Neville to Cambell (we’re on the ball)
Cambell to Rio (we’re on the ball)
Rio to Scolsey (we’re on the ball)
Scolsey Gerrard (we’re on the ball)
Gerrard to Beckham (we’re on the ball)
Beckham to Heskey (we’re on the ball)
Heskey to Owen to Nodd (five one)
(We’re on the ball)

It’s Neville to Cambell (let’s go to Cambell please)
Cambell to Rio (he always get the journey)
Rio to Scolsey (we’re on the ball)
Scolsey Gerrard
Gerrard to Beckham (we’re on the ball)
Beckham to Heskey (we’re on the ball)
Heskey to Owen to Nodd
We’re on the ball

“Can I have the ball back please”

Shout for England by Dizzee Rascal and James Corden

And it’s England, who are stepping out now, for this new challenge ahead
The nation is watching

Come on England we need to sort it out
Put the champs down
Pull your finger out
Leave the wags alone
Set aside your ego
We’re tired of bragging about 40 odd years ago
We need a victory, quick, fast
Tired of getting a kick (oi)
World cup 2010
Don’t wanna see you slip past
Think about the future
Surely it’s the right time
I wanna see you win it in my lifetime
1966 Bobby Moore and that Geogg Hurst put it to the turf
We applauded that
There was no ignoring that
Nobody could stop him
I gotta myself an England shirt I’m gonna rock it
Cos there’s so much to play for
But we’ve got to come together (Ay oh, ay oh, ay oh, ay oh)
You know we’ve got to come together now (Ay oh, ay oh, ay oh, ay oh)
One, two, three, everybody sing

Shout, Shout, let it all out (Come on England)
These are the things I could do without
Come on
I’m talking to you
Come on (Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough)
Ay oh, ay oh, ay oh, ay oh
Everybody sing
Ay oh, ay oh, ay oh, ay oh
Come on England

Pull your socks up let’s get physical
We need team work, we don’t need a miracle
We need Rooney in tip top condition
Aaron Lennon down the wing like he’s on a mission
It ain’t no superstition, its not a luck thing
Rio Ferdinand nobody can with him
If we get stuck in, don’t get caught out
And stop trying to hug the ball
Knock the ball about

So much to play for
But we’ve got to come together
(Ay oh, ay oh, ay oh, ay oh)
One, two, three, everybody sing

Shout, Shout, let it all out (Come on England)
These are the things I could do without
Come on
I’m talking to you
Come on
Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough

Steven Gerrard with the shot
It’s into the net for England

Well there’s been some doubts
But those doubts have been swept away now
And England are heading for South Africa

Shout, Shout, let it all out
These are the things I could do without
Come on (Come on England)
I’m talking to you
Come on
Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough (England, England, England, England)

Shout, shout, let it all out (Ay oh, ay oh, ay oh, ay oh)
Come on England
These are the things I could do without
Come on
I’m talking to you
Come on

Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough

Come on England
