The Scottish national team reused an old disco classic and turned it into their new football anthem.
There was ‘Will Griggs on Fire’ at Euro 2016 sung by supporters in Northern Ireland, now you can expect to hear a lot of Tartan army saying they don’t know how to boogie.
Scottish players sang heartily after their win over Serbia which saw them qualify for Euro 2020. shipped in
Indeed, ‘Yes, Sir I Can Boogie’, a 1977 disco tune by Spanish duo Bakara, was sung by the team when Scotland beat Serbia to qualify for a major international tournament for the first time in 22 years.

“I will always thank the Scottish team, and especially Andy Considine for making me so happy after 43 years.”
Why are they singing it?
This appears to be due to Considine, the defender who got his first call up to the full Scotland squad in 2020 at the age of 33.
In 2015, he was at his bachelorette party and starred in a video parody of the song, which somehow fell into the public domain.
Originally adopted by the always cheerful Tartan army, it was first sung in tribute to Considine, but is now the unofficial anthem for the players’ cheerful interpretation.
He was there, accompanied by Kieran Tierney, Andy Robertson and Scott McTominay, singing a song to celebrate.
What are the songs?
The most important refrain is: “Ooh! Yes sir! I can dance,
but i want a certain song
I can boogie, boogie woogie all night
Yes sir! I can dance,
You can’t go wrong if you live,
I can boogie, boogie woogie all night.
