Work up early this morning and I jumped out of bed
I didn't have to wear my work clothes
I put on this shirt instead
Its a black and white jersey, its a thing I couldn't hide
Cos its almost a religion and I wear it with some pride

Now the streets are all empty in this little town of mine
I was born to make this journey like the ships outside
I've got my ticket to london, and a little bit of cash
I've got this black and white jersey nice and clean for the match..

Now tell me, why is the whole world staring?
Must be the shirt I'm wearing
Black and white army
Bringing the pride back home (well be)
Bringing the pride back home
Bringing the pride back home
Black and white army

Its been a long hard season, been a long hard year
And theyre telling us that were lucky
So lucky, to be here
But if we all stand together and hold our heads up high
We will raise up our voices and tell it to the sky
This time they can't deny us
This time they wont get by us

Black and white army
Bringing the pride back home (well be)
Bringing the pride back home
Bringing the pride back home
Black and white army

Youll never understand us if you thought that wed give up
Cos its more than just a game,
And its more than just a cup
Cos were marching the length of england
And I wouldnt tell no lie
Ill wear this black and white jersey til the day I die

Now tell me, why is the whole world staring?
Must be the shirt I'm wearing
Black and white army
Bringing the pride back home (well be)
Bringing the pride back home
Bringing the pride back home
Black and white army
