England Women’s World Cup song: What are the lyrics to the brilliant chant for ‘Call Me a Lioness’ featuring ex-Spice Girl

As England ready themselves for their first-ever Women’s World Cup final, their anthem will be heard nationwide.

The song focuses on the positivity from the Lionesses’ win at the 2022 Women’s Euros and it will now motivate Sarina Wiegman’s side to lift the World Cup this weekend.

England are one win away from history

Ex-Spice Girl Melanie C leads a cast of 11 singers for the song ‘Call Me a Lioness’

‘Call Me a Lioness’ sees a cast of 11 artists come together to celebrate the England Women’s team.

The choir are dubbed ‘Hope FC’ and features former Spice Girl Melanie C and Wolf Alice’s lead singer Ellie Roswell.

The anthem is ‘unofficial’ after the FA stopped releasing official songs following the 2014 Men’s World Cup.

All proceeds from sales and streams will go into directly funding grassroots and women’s football.

Co-writer Olivia Dean believes it’s a powerful and positive track.

Speaking to the BBC, she said: “We wanted to make a song that gives girls a soundtrack to their pride of the Lionesses and of being a woman, and to unite everyone in that pride.

“Whenever I hear Call Me A Lioness I think about being in a beer garden singing it at the top of my lungs with my friends.”

The Lionesses take part in their first-ever Women’s World Cup final this weekend live on talkSPORT, and this is sure to be belted out in the dressing room.

The anthem will be heard nationwide ahead of the final
