Still love and listening to this song even now. Timeless classic, athough the music video was cheap as chips.

I can't believe no one's mentioned Vindaloo yet! I heard on a TV programme that Keith Allen wrote that song because he knew football fans would sing along to it, and he thought it would be funny to have white, racist football hooligans singing about curry.

However, Wikipedia says this:
The song sounded a little too much like a "hooligan's anthem" for some observers, but from the point of view of the BBC (who commission the official UK Music Chart) the band were deliberately waking the ghost of an earlier incident on the BBC TV programme The Late Show. Guest Keith Allen got into an extremely heated row with the panel over his view that comedy was now being hamstrung to appease rules of political correctness. Just before storming off the live broadcast, Allen stormed at an Asian member of the panel that "It's not a chip you've got on your shoulder, it's a ****ing vindaloo!". He later explained to press reporters that a vindaloo is as faux ethnic (this piece of Goan cuisine actually originated from Portugal) as those who masquerade as self-appointed spokespeople for ethnic minority communities' rights in order to censor arts and culture according to their own pet prejudices.

Anyway, all together now:

Me and me mum and me dad and me gran
We're off to waterloo
Me and me mum and me dad and me gran
And a bucket of vindaloo

Bucket

Vindaloo, Vindaloo, Vindaloo, Vindaloo, na na
Vindaloo, Vindaloo, Vindaloo, Vindaloo, na na
Vindaloo, Vindaloo and we all like vindaloo
We're England!
We're gonna score one more than you
England!

I'm not sure I would classify it as a novelty song...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n295hjktHD0

Her name was Jeanine Deckers and there was a film made about her called "The Singing Nun" staring Debbie Reynolds.
