Mambo Number 13

The 2013 rugby league World Cup starts next weekend. In its honour, I've re-worked the lyrics to Lou Bega's "Mambo Number 5" for your delectation.

The original is here ( for those of you who can't remember it.

Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you "Mambo Number 13..."

"One, two, three, four, five
Everybody in your cars, come on let's drive
To stadiums across the country
For the biggest stars of rugby league
You'll ever see
Show their skills, every week
Cause in this game, well talk is cheap
There's Australia, England, Wales and New Zealand
And so it continues with Scotland, France and Ireland
So who is going to lift to the trophy at Old Trafford?
We all hope it's going to be England
It's rugby league, it's our favourite game
With all these stars, remember their names

A little bit of Charnley on the right
A little bit of Ryan Hall in full flight
A little bit of Tomkins out the back
A bit of Sinfield keeping it on track
A little bit of Roby around the ruck
The bounce of the ball and a little luck
A ground full of fans making some noise
Let's all get behind the England boys.

Mambo Number 13!"
