Football songs and chants


War Hero
It's Friday afternoon, I'm bored, anyone got any good football songs?

Your starter for ten:

My old man said be a Wednesday fan I said **** off bollocks you're a ****,
we'll take Hillsborough and all that's in it,
we'll take Hillsborough in just one minute,
with hatchets and hammers, carving knives and spanners,
we are the boys from Bramall Lane,
we go home and away on a Saturday where the beer makes us insane!

He said go on we're going to the game,
I said **** off I'm going down the Lane,
and so I went down to John Street, found my self a good seat,
saw the lads go two up at the break,
then it's down to the bar for a pint of Magnet and a meat pie filled with steak......

And of course:

You fill up my senses like a gallon of Magnet,
like a packet of Woodbines, like a good pinch of snuff,
like a night out in Sheffield, like a greasy chip butty,
like Sheffield United, come fill me again na na na nah naaaah....

To the tune of Mud, mud glorious mud:

Away up in Gorgie at Tynecastle Park
There's a wee football team
that aye makes it's mark
They've won all the honours
for footballing arts
And there's nae other team
to compare with the Hearts


If you cannae spell it then here's what it says
Hearts, Hearts glorious Hearts
It's down at Tynecastle they bide
The talk of the toun are the boys in Maroon
And Auld Reekie supports them with pride.

This is my story this is my song
Follow the Hearts and you can't go wrong
For some say the Celtic
and Rangers are grand
but the boys in maroon
are the best in the land

And national caps we can always supply
like Massey and Walker
or Bauld and Mackay
if I had the time I could name dozens more
who have helped in producing
the old Hampden roar.


We've won the league flag
and we've won the league cup
Though we sometimes go down
we will aye go back up
Our forwards can score and it's
our defence is as strong as the old castle rock


And I've even got the 7" single of it from the 85/86 season, sad fool that I am!
