Celebs back Ilkeston band to score World Cup hit

Waiting for Video...
 

Robbie Williams has backed a band started in Ilkeston to score a chart topping hit after they released their World Cup single this week.

The Establishment, managed by former England, Manchester United and Aston Villa star Dion Dublin, released The Winner In You — a rewritten cover version of The New Radicals’ song You Only Get What You Give this week.

A star studded video, featuring Robbie Williams, Ian Wright, the cast of Coronation Street, boxer Audley Harrison, Olympic swimmer Mark Foster, former cricketer Phil Tufnell and of course Dion Dublin himself accompanies the song.

The idea was the brainchild of football pundit Ray Stubbs who mentioned it to Dion after filming Final Score when he was working for the BBC.

Dion spoke to the band, started by Ilkeston drummer John Burns, and it was recorded ready for the England team’s trip to Brazil.

Guitarist Stuart Landon said: “We’d talked about the idea last summer, it’s an obvious thing to do with Dion’s connections but we didn’t want it to seem cheesy.

“When Ray suggested it and Dion told us we were really happy with it, it’s a song by fans for the fans.

“The tune is really catchy and the lyrics are easy to pick up, we want to hear fans singing it on the terraces.

“The most important thing is joining together to send a message of support.

“The track is a rousing call to let our boys know that the whole country is behind them.”

Fans also feature in the video after sending in clips of themselves singing the song.

Winner In You lyrics

The Lyrics for the Establishment track, Winner In You:

England, England, England, England

Wake up kids we’ve had the dreamer’s disease

Red or white we’ll wear our hearts on our sleeves

Make us proud you’ve got the world at your feet

Hopes and fears we stand together as one

Lift the roof the nation’s cheering you on

Win or lose we’re England til we die

And when the time comes calling

(England, England)

And you’re ready for the fight

(England, England)

If you feel your dreams are sliding hold tight

You’ve got the winning in you

Don’t let go

You’ve got the winning in you

Side by side

The country’s pulling you through

Sleeves rolled up

You’ve got desire to win

England we only get what we give

England, England

Chosen men to run the miracle miles

You can win and you can win it in style

Don’t look back we’ll have the time of our lives

And when the time comes calling

(England, England)

And you’re ready for the fight

(England, England)

If you feel your dreams are sliding hold tight

You’ve got the winning in you

Don’t let go

You’ve got the winning in you

Side by side

The country’s pulling you through

Sleeves rolled up

You’ve got desire to win

England we only get what we give

England, England

(Great escape theme)

Don’t let go

You’ve got the winning in you

Side by side

The country’s pulling you through

Sleeves rolled up

You’ve got desire to win

England we only get what we give

England we’ll only get what we give

England we only get what we give

England we’ll only get what we give

England we only get what we give

England
