World Cup Songs: #11 Three Shirts On My Line by Frank Sidebottom
More World Cup tuneage
Manchester comic Frank Sidebottom has launched his very own unofficial World Cup songs titled Three Shirts On My Line. It is a parody of a very well known World Cup anthem, but we will let you guess which one.
The song is inspired by Frank’s England shirt collection – home, away and goalie – all being washed by his mum at the same time.
He told the Manchester Evening News: “The song just rolled off my tongue, faster than a fast-speed washing machine. I asked my mum where my England shirts were and she said that she had washed them.
“I looked outside and there were three shirts on the line. I thought that it is a brilliant idea for a song. Thirty-five years of dirt washed out by my mum.”
