The song is titled "Three Lions (Football's Coming Home)' not 'It's Coming Home".

"To Gareth Southgate and the England football team for reaching the World Cup semi-finals".

Multiple social media platforms are overflowing with memes, fan made videos, and tweets from England fans, cheering for their favorite team.

The Royal Regiment of Scotland - homeland of the president's mother - will pipe him out at the end of the dinner. I would also say that I think the majority of British people understand the importance of the UK-US alliance.

"But I think it's time we knock it off the number one spot with Three Lions", he said.

What's extraordinary, although perhaps unsurprising, is that the song continues to chart - once every four years like clockwork, as England's football-winning ambitions remain as intimately tied to the single as the yuletide holidays do to Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas".

"We got out we download and we stream "Three Lions", and we get it to Number 1".
