sprAll Together Now is a song by Liverpudlian pop band The Farm from their album "Spartacus", and is said to link many of the band's favourite themes, Socialism, brotherhood and football.

It took its lyrical/subject inspiration from the Christmas Day Truce in World War I and was heavily musically influenced by Johann Pachelbel's Canon and its descending chord sequence. The song was remade to accompany the English National Football Team to the Euro 2004 tournament. The song was once again remade by Atomic Kitten in 2006 as an official song for the 2006 FIFA World Cup and was featured in an entirely computer animated music video showing the World Cup mascots Goleo and Pille travelling around the world until they eventually arrive to Berlin's Olympic Stadium, the setting of the 2006 FIFA World Cup Final.

The song was produced by Graham McPherson, better known as Suggs, a founder member of the band Madness, and recorded at Mayfair Studios. It was originally released on November 26, 1990, and its album cover showed a subbuteo figure wearing an army uniform and brandishing a rifle.

The song was re-released for two football causes, Everton's appearance in the 1995 FA Cup Final (odd considering the group are made up of fans of Liverpool, Everton's bitter rivals), and the campaign of the England team at Euro 2004.

Remember boy that your forefather's died
Lost in millions for a country's pride
But never mention the trenches of Belgium
When they stopped fighting and they were one

A spirit greater than war was at work that night
December 1914 cold, clear and bright
Countries' borders were right out of sight
When stood together and decided not to fight

All together now
All together now
All together now, in no man's land

All together now
All together now
All together now, in no man's land

The same old story again
All those lives lost in vain
Nothing learnt and nothing gained
Now only hope remains

All together now
All together now
All together now, in no man's land

All together now
All together now
All together now, in no man's land .....

The boys had their say they said no
Stop the slaughter let's go home,
let's go, let's go,
let's go, let's go
From ths no man's land

All together now
All together now
All together now, in no man's land

All together now
All together now
All together now, in no man's land .....
