Chants of old


geezer

Recommended Posts

Loz's recent quiz question of an old chant (which I got wrong!!) made me recall many of the old terrace chants my favourite of which was aimed at the Man City side of the late 60's mearly 70's.

#Lee bums Bell

Bell bums Lee

Lee and Bell bum Summerbee

With a knick knack paddywhack

Give the dog a bone

Why don't City f**k off home?#

It sometimes felt as if there were new songs being born every week under the Shed in the late 60's and early 70's. Two of my faves -

To the tune of "Wand'rin' Star" by Lee Marvin

"I was born under a Chelsea Shed,

I was born under a Chelsea Shed,

Knives are made for stabbing,

Guns are made to shoot,

If you come under the Chelsea Shed

We'll all stick in the boot,

I was born under a Chelsea Shed,

A Chelsea, Chelsea Shed"

To the tune of "Montego Bay" by Bobby Bloom (though the best version was by Freddie Notes & The Rudies)

"Five hundred Tottenham lying dead,

Just cos' they tried to take the Chelsea Shed,

Come in the morning or come at night,

Don't come at all if you cannot fight,

Sing out, oh oh oh oh oh oh The Chelsea Shed,

Oh oh oh oh oh oh The Chelsea Shed"

Good days.... B)

Those were the days my friend

We took the Stretford End

We took the Kop, we took the f**king lot

We'd fight and never lose

Then we'd sing "Up The Blues"

Those were the days

Oh yes those were the days

Na na na, na na na

Na na na, na na na

Na na na na

Na na na na na na

It's nice to hear all the old shed chants again, although they'll never be the same as the old days..........We're the middle, we're the west side etc..........

A few old ones here - but mostly new:

I've just had half the office shout 'oh turn that sh*t off' . When I entered the site my volume was up as loud as it would go........I've added it to favourites so I can play it everytime one of em pisses me off!

Some that are still heard occasionally

Come along come along

come along and sing our song

were the boys in blue from division two

but we wont be there for long

Osgood osgood etc.. now sung at vertually every game.. brilliant.

If i had the wings of a sparrow

the dirty old ars* of a crow

I'd fly over (add ground/club)

and sh*t on the bar stewards below

.. and can anyone remember the Zulu song ?? or did I imagine it ?

Before the match version.....

There was a mighty battle there, in Mill, in Millwall

One hundred thousand North Stand there, in Mill, in Millwall

All the West Ham gathered round, in Mill, in Millwall

Chelsea battered them into the grooooouuuuund,

In Millwall, in Millwall

After the match version.....

There was a mighty battle there, in Mill, in Millwall

One hundred thousand North Stand there, in Mill, in Millwall

All the Shed Boys stayed at home.......

Never to be sung again.

Bump.

Sang to the tune of Edith Piaf's Milord.

Come on and cheer again,

Cos Chelsea's here again,

We are the greatest football team you've ever seen,

We are the best in town,

We are the best around,

We are the greatest football team you've ever seen

Tried it out at Fado's in Seattle night before the match in front of a few olde tyme Chelsea, and to my delight they turned around bright eyed and sang along. History right there.

So f*ckin' true, I used to get so pissed off with the amount of Shed Boys gobbing off that they'd be going to West Ham or Millwall, then come the day they were nowhere to be seen. Happened every year!

TO THE TUNE OF THE TEDDYSBEAR PICNIC.

if you go down to the bridge today you better go in disguise,

if you go into the shed today you'll never believe your eyes,

cause jeremy the sugar puff bear has donned some boots and shaved off his hair......

AND JEREMY THE SUGER PUFF BEARS JOINED THE SKIN HEADS

one of my favourites, though I remember a slightly different version: -

If you go down to the Bridge today, be sure of a big surprise

If you go up in the Shed today, you'll hardly believe your eyes

'cos Jeremy the Sugar Puff Bear has bought some boots and cropped his hair

And Jeremy is now the king of the skinheads

Hmm I like this one better. So smooth.

Quick, 'beard and others, besides "We all hate Leeds and Leeds and Leeds and Leeds..." can you share any old songs specific to those bar stewards?

I was just reading through this thread and remembered telling my misses about this song when I read CBB's post..I showed her it but said the words were slightly different in the version I knew..the main part being "Bought some Boots and Cropped his hair" and then I see you learned the same one..

Carshalton Rules :(

I remember it was about 8 years ago I was singing the old songs sat in a Transit Tourneo, Broken down in Austria waiting for the AA..I was trying to keep us all cheerful and recon the old Austrians must have thought the English were insane.

Just thought of another few from the old days...

"We don't carry shotguns, we don't carry lead

We only carry hatchets to bury in your heads,

We don't carry razors, we don't carry tools,

We only wear our bovver boots to kick you in the balls"

then, to the tune of 'Pick A Bale Of Cotton'

"Jump down turn around, kick him in the bollocks

Jump down turn around, kick him in the head"

I can't remember what the Everton keeper did to deserve this, but this was sung to the tune of "Excerpt From A Teenage Opera" by Keith West

"Gordon West, Gordon West,

Biggest c*nt since Georgie Best,

Get on your bike, and f*ck off home"

and Kool & The Gang...

"Boot wrapped round yer head,

You'll get a boot wrapped round yer head"

To the tune of United States Marines.

On the cold, dark streets of Merseyside,

where the West Hams never been.

Lies the chewed up body of a scouse git,

where the North Stand kicked him in.

To hell with Liverpool.

To hell with Man City.

Coz we'll fight, fight, fight for the Chelsea till we win the football league.

I'd had a top drinking session with some old faces last season and we could all vividly remember the tune and the end of this song, but found we had all developed collective Alzheimers for most of the words. The song was buzzing round my head for the best part of week and it bothered me greatly that I couldn't remember all of it. So many thanks to my friend Bluebeard, and his encyclopedic knowledge of Chelsea in the 60's and 70's, for filling in the blanks.

Anyone know this one..not sure how popular ut was, or if I've been misled, but to the tun of Wet Spam's Blowin' Bubbles

On a Wolverhampton Terrace

In the pouring Rain

A Young Chelsea Supporter

Got a bullet in his brain

And as he lay there dying

Blood pouring from his head

He looked up to the clear blue sky

and this is what he said

YOURE GONNA GET YOUR HEAD KICKED IN!!!

Sorry Just, but my memories of that one are: -

"In the dark back streets of Liverpool,

Where the Mile End's never been,

Lies the chewed up body of a scouse git,

Where the North Stand kicked him in,

To hell with Liverpool, to hell with Man.City,

We'll fight fight fight for Chelsea till we win the football league"

Thing is, there were a lot of different versions of songs, depending on which mob you were with

Another thing, it makes me laugh when West Ham and other w*nkers say that the Chelsea mob were all from West London. The main mobs in the Shed in the late 60's and early 70's were all from South London. Anyone remember this...

"We all come from Stockwell, do dah, do dah,

We all come from Stockwell, do dah do dah day"

which would be answered by...

"We all come from Battersea, woof woof,

We all come from Battersea, woof woof woof woof woof"

CHELSEA :( CHELSEA :) CHELSEA ::clap2::

Ah, the good old days - I want to go and kick f*ck out of someone now, must control myself
