IT IS that time again, when every England fan begins dreaming about their team winning the World Cup.

Choruses of the classic 1996 anthem Three Lions will be ringing around the country as Gareth Southgate’s side prepare to kick off their campaign on Monday against Tunisia.

But a band from Worthing may have created something that wipes the Lightning Seeds’ hit off the charts.

Three-piece Men at Risk, made up of Ian Chilvers, Luke Osborne and Jamie Parkinson, have launched their charity song, called We’ll Drink a Drink, a Drink, to raise cash for St Barnabas House.

Jamie said: “We are a charity band in Worthing and have raised £6,000 in the last four years supporting local charities and Cancer Research UK nationally.

“We have all had such warming experience of St Barnabas where they have looked after our loved ones.

“At such heartbreaking times St Barnabas have offered that ray of light and support.

“We would love to raise thousands of pounds from this song – every penny will go to St Barnabas so please keep sharing and spreading the word.”

The song, which is a variation on Lily the Pink by Liverpool-based comedy and music trio The Scaffold, can be downloaded on iTunes for 99p.

Men at Risk are also recording a music video for the tune at the Windmill Harvester in Littlehampton next Wednesday at 8pm.

Anyone who would like to appear in it is welcome to tag along, the band said.

Wendy Bardsley, community fundraising manager at St Barnabas House, said: “Men at Risk have come up with a fun and novel way to fundraise for St Barnabas House, doing something they clearly love.

“I can see our supporters having a World Cup evening with their friends and playing this tune when we win.

“We need to raise £6.5 million to pay for all of our care costs this year, so good luck to Men at Risk in your fundraising and come on England.”

However, Men at Risk may have some competition for the number one spot this summer.

Kitchen fitters Shane Smith and Tony Troncone, along with carpenter Oran Guile, all from Worthing, have created their own song in a bid to have it sung in Russia in the coming weeks.

Frontman Shane, 45, came up with the idea of recording Chas & Dave’s number Snooker Loopy, but tweaked the lyrics to “England Loopy” instead.

They are raising money for Help for Heroes.

Shane said: “I’d love to hear the song sang on the terraces at the World Cup finals. Who knows – maybe this could be the new anthem.”
