When it comes to football, England fans are a creative bunch and as such, there is no shortage of songs that could be included in this best England fan songs list.

For the sake of logistics, we have narrowed it down to just three options, all of which are extremely popular and will almost certainly be sung in the stands at Euro 2024.

3. Don't Take Me Home

If you want a short and snappy tune that encapsulates the English footballing culture, then this is the song for you.

This will be heard less in the stands and more in the pubs, but nevertheless, it is one of the most popular England fan songs and knowing the lyrics is crucial. They are as follows:

“Don’t take me home,

Please don’t take me home

I just don’t want to go home

I wanna stay here, drink all your beer

Please don’t, please don’t take me home”

Grab a friend, grab a pint, and make sure you belt this one out!

2. England Till' I Die

Another short and snappy song on the list, ‘England Till I Die' is an absolute classic, and like ‘Don't Take Me Home', is also more likely to be sung in the pub than in the stadium. However, you will definitely hear it in both locations.

In truth, there aren't many lyrics to learn for this one, but they are as follows:

“England till I die,

I’m England till I die,

I know I am I’m sure I am,

I’m England till I die”

We told you it was short.

1. Southgate You're The One

Perhaps the most iconic England fan song in recent years, ‘Southgate You're The One' first hit the terraces during the 2018 World Cup – Gareth Southgate's first tournament as England manager.

It was a glorious summer to be a Three Lions supporter and as a result, the tune remains a fan favourite despite Southgate himself dividing opinion among fans.

It is considerably longer than the first two songs on the list, and the lyrics are:

“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”

 

It is sung to the tune of Whole Again by Atomic Kitten, which makes the song incredibly catchy and almost addictive to sing. If the Three Lions do the impossible and win the Euros, be prepared to hear this one in streets up and down the country.

That wraps up our best England fan songs list, remember to save these lyrics so you aren't left guessing at Euro 2024. Come on England!
