"Don't come home too soon" as written by and Justin Currie....
So long, go on and do your best,
Let all friends have whiskey on it's breath,
The world may not be shaking yet
but you might prove them wrong,
Even long shots make it

So go then, out into history,
And show them how easy it can be,
You might not believe it yet
but pretty soon you'll see,
Even long shots make it,

Just don't come home too soon,
Just don't come home too soon,

And I don't care what people say,
We can laugh it all away,
But if I have a dream at all
For once you won't be on that stupid plane

And the world may not be shaking yet,
But you might prove them wrong,
Even long shots make it

Just don't come home too soon,
Just don't come home too soon,
I don't care what people say
(just don't come home too soon)
We're gonna laugh it all the way
(just don't come home too soon)
I don't care what people say
(just don't come home too soon)
We're gonna laugh it all the way
(just don't come home too soon)
I don't care what people say
(just don't come home too soon)
We're gonna laugh it all the way
(just don't come home too soon)
I don't care what people say
(just don't come home too soon)
We're gonna laugh it all the way
(just don't come home too soon)

    General CommentThe Scottish 'Three Lions'.

    Of course they did come home too soon but this IS Scotland we're talking about. :-)

    General CommentThis track is far too beautiful to be simply remembered as a World Cup song.

    General CommentCould this be the most melancholy football song in history?

    Verse one: "let all FRANCE..." -that's where the World Cup was held in '98.
