England fans fume at ‘cringe’ new Christmas version of Three Lions

England fans aren’t happy.

Although the original ’30 Years of Hurt’ was factually correct, it has now been replaced by a more difficult ’56’. However, the lyrics make sure to emphasize that it was ‘in men’s play’ after the Lionesses roared during the summer. Sarina Wiegman led the nation to its first ever women’s major trophy, winning Euro 2022 glory at Wembley Stadium.

England’s male football players are coming to Qatar after suffering heartbreak at their previous two major tournaments. They will be fueled by the desire to ‘bring football home’, the core lyrics from Baddiel Skinner and Broudie’s latest and original song.

Skinner said, “We just had too. Christmas World Cup songs don’t look like buses. We wouldn’t let this chance pass us by. It would have been a long wait for next one. Baddiel laughed, saying: “It’s between Mariah Carey and me for who is really the voice of Christmas.”

To boost England’s group stage campaign, the team behind the song will aim to reach No 1 on the Official Charts on Friday. This feat was achieved in 1996 when they remained at No. 1 for three weeks. During the 1998 World Cup, ‘Threelions’ 98 also topped the charts.

The new lyrics include “loving that Lionesses wins”, “Three Lions riding on a sleigh” and a poke at FIFA’s decision to award the World Cup Qatar. “What a great game,” “England are giving them real good stuffing” and “Ding Dong Merrily on Sky” add to the Christmas feel of the song.

But the star power of the show has not been enough to win over many England fans who have expressed their dissatisfaction with the new version via social media. It was described as ‘pathetic’, “pointless”, “cringe” and “terrible” by a few words.

One user wrote, “Absolutely Tragic.” Another user said, “Don’t fix the things that aren’t broken.” A third fan asked, “Lol, do they think anyone will listen? A fourth fan was disappointed and said: “Great. I won’t be singing that.”

Many have accused Baddiel and his team of using the song to make money. However, they denied this claim earlier in the year. “I want them to know how much Spotify makes. “I can’t retire on [PS900] between us from 16,000,000 plays.


The original “Three Lions” has sold nearly two million copies and is currently streaming over 40,000,000 times on Spotify. It’s not likely that it will age as well, given the overwhelming reaction to the 2022 reverbed album, even though it features the praise the Lionesses deserve.

No matter what the opinions are on the new track the nation will be united when England takes to the field in Qatar. Gareth Southgate’s team will face Iran on Monday, before they take on the USA and Wales on November 25th and 29th, respectively.
