World Cup 2014: Argentina Players Sing 'Bad Moon Rising' Chant (Video)

Posted: Updated:

For a country with an unmemorable national anthem, Argentina's fans have provided their own memorable soundtrack to this World Cup and it certainly has the approval of the players.

In scenes reminiscent of Diego Maradona's dressing room cheerleading at the 1986 World Cup, the players sang and clapped along to "Brasil decime que se siente" (Brasil, tell me how it feels) after their quarter-final victory over Belgium.

Conducted to the tune of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising", the ditty charts Argentina's rivalry with Brazil and their determination to win a third World Cup on Brazilian soil.

It includes references to Caludio Caniggia's winner against the Seleção at Italia '90 and boasts Diego Maradona is better than Pelé.

Manchester United fans use the tune to their "Stretford End arising" chant, as well as another song ridiculing Manchester City fans' supposedly dodgy attire.

Argentina's original, and translated, lyrics are below...

"Brasil, Decime Qué Se Siente,
Tener En Casa Tu Papá,
Te Juro Que Aunque Pasen Los Años,
Nunca Nos Vamos A Olvidar,
Que El Diego Te Gambeteó,
Que Cani Te Vacunó,
Estás Llorando Desde Italia Hasta Hoy,
A Messi Lo Vas A Ver,
La Copa Nos Va A Traer,
Maradona Es Más Grande Que Pelé"

"Brazil, Tell Me How It Feels,
To Be Bossed Around In Your Own Home,
I Swear That Even If Years Pass,
We Will Never Forget,
That Diego [Maradona] Out-Skilled You,
That Cani [Claudio Caniggia] Surprised You,
You Are Crying Since Italy [World Cup 1990] Till Today,
You Are Going To See Messi,
The World Cup Will Be Ours,
Maradona Is Greater Than Pelé"
