Lamb of Hope and Glory (The Glass House 14/6/06)

A new version of Land of Hope and Glory intended to unite the English behind their World Cup soccer team has been recorded by a flock of sheep. Of course you can’t understand the lyrics – those sheep have a really thick accent / they’re always using Cockney rhyming slang.

The singing’s not great, but it’s got a catchy bleat!

The tune sounds fine, but the singing’s not much chop.

It’s actually woolly, woolly good!

They were hoping for lots of airplay, but it’s been baaaaarred.

The tune has been recorded by the Baarmy Army. They just took a regular flock of sheep and got them pissed.

(baaed) Lamb of Hope and Glory
Mother of the Sheep
Lord you made me white-fleeced
Wool baa lamb chop bleat.

It was the sheep’s idea to begin with. Because they just love soccer.

They were originally going to do the song with cows, but Her Majesty was not amoooosed…

There were plans to do the same sort of thing for the Socceroos, but there’s only so much you can do with “tch-tch”. (Skippy noise)

Well it was either that or the Spice Girls…

I haven’t heard mutton singing like that since Cher’s last single.

The clip contains a bunch of sheep chasing a soccer ball around the countryside before one of them scores with a header. What an amazing sheep! He can sing, he can play soccer – he’s like Posh and Becks rolled into one!

The clip contains a bunch of sheep chasing a soccer ball around the countryside before one of them scores with a header. He’s now tossing up whether to go with the sporting or singing careers. Or he could do both and go on the next series of It Takes Two.

England’s soccer team have paid back the favour – now anyone who is dropped from the team will be served roasted with mint sauce. Delicious.
