MasterCard Australia has teamed with Cricket Australia to launch the ‘Barbie Army’, a war cry for Aussie fans during the Ashes which start today.

The song is a collaboration between Mike Hussey, Denis Carnahan and Mastercard ambassador Mitchell Starc to combat the infamous taunts of England’s Barmy Army.

Written loosely to the tune “My old man’s a dustman”, The Barbie Army song has been recorded by Denis Carnahan and shared on YouTube in karaoke fashion. The full lyrics are at the bottom of this article.

Sarah Pike, VP marketing and communications at Mastercard Australasia, said: “As sponsor of the men’s cricket team, we’re thrilled to back the Barbie Army and start something priceless with the rest of the Australian fans. If the Barbie Army song is anything to go by, the collaboration between Mitch, Mike and Denis will make for fun and memorable chants. We all know what we’re up against, and believe that over time, the chants will grow as the singing does into something truly priceless.”

Fast bowler, Mitchell Starc, added: “There’s nothing like playing in front of your country and fans. Australians already bring awesome colour and fun to the cricket which really creates an atmosphere that as a player you thrive on. Channeling some of that into chants that snap back at the Poms will be priceless! All fans should learn the chants and sing at the top of their lungs to help us get the Ashes back off the Poms!”

The full lyrics are:

WE ARE THE BARBIE ARMY!

We argue over football, and which code is the best
We argue over politics, we argue East with West.
But if you think we’re divided, then you’d be thinking wrong
‘Cause the one thing that unites us is WE LOVE TO BEAT THE POMS

OH WE ARE THE BARBIE ARMY AND WE LOVE TO BEAT THE POMS
WE LOVE TO TURN OUR SAUSAGES AND LAMB CHOPS WITH OUR TONGS WE HEAR THE BARMY ARMY’S LAME PANTOMIME SONGS,
BUT WE ARE THE BARBIE ARMY AND WE LOVE TO BEAT THE POMS

We argue over whether steaks should be rare or well done,
We argue over whether tofu burgers can be fun,
We stand around the barbie, and argue all day long,
But the one thing we agree on is WE LOVE TO BEAT THE POMS

OH WE ARE THE BARBIE ARMY AND WE LOVE TO BEAT THE POMS
WE LOVE TO HAVE A BARBIE WEARING SUN CREAM, HATS AND THONGS WE HEAR THE BARMY ARMY’S LAME FOOTBALL HOOLIGAN SONGS, BUT WE ARE THE BARBIE ARMY AND WE LOVE TO BEAT THE POMS!

Now you say we’ve got no culture, you say we’ve got no art You call us dirty convicts, you think that breaks our hearts? You say your songs are better, and maybe you are right, But can we kindly ask you, to look up in the sky –

WE GOT THE SUNSHINE (WE GOT THE SUNSHINE) WE GOT THE SUNSHINE (WE GOT THE SUNSHINE) WE GOT THE SUNSHINE (WE GOT THE SUNSHINE) AND YOU GOT RAAAAIIINNNN!!!!!!!
