I always enjoyed abusing one of the opposition with the simple yet effective "What a w⚓ what a w⚓ la la la la la la..." 👍

‘You’re going in the river’ always made me smile when I was young.

Does anybody if any poor soul did go in the river?

Also there was a song about Paul Randall which in these more enlightened times would never be sung.Great fun hearing it though when a young teenager in the middle of a packed East End.

Wasn’t it reference to when we went away to Newport County and someone got thrown over George St bridge

Had a pang of disappointment when I realised "we're by far the greatest team the world had ever seen" turned out to be untrue ☹️

Hearing "hit him on the head, hit him on the head, hit him on the head with a baseball bat, on the head, on the head" at the Barnsley game was a welcome return! More of that please.

Ci-ty where ever you may be
We went down from 1-2-3
We'll be back , to win all 3
We'll go down in his-tory

We all agree,
Gibson is better than Yashin,
John Galley is better than Eusebeo,
and R*vers are in for a thrashing 

Get enough old boys together, add beer = a bloody good sing song :yes:

As an ex member (later Chair) of the London Branch I was fortunate to spend some wonderfully engaging times with Tony. A real character who followed City everywhere.

Was sat in the South Stand last Saturday and a group of blokes sat behind me on block S21 started singing this, just after "do the Dziekanowski".  Gert big  nostalgic grin from me: bemused look from my 15 year old.  God bless the early 90s!

There's always the old number... "Tesco took the tote end"... Blue few really didn't like that! 

Especially when we waved carrier bags at them on one occasion.

'He's only a poor little Gas Head....' is one of my favourites along with 'flying high up in the sky....'

Recent times though and especially due to the guy conducting at the front of S82  'Heeeyy, heeeyy Johnson, oooh ahhh, I wanna knoooww, where you got that coat!!

Actually best all time song has to be from the City v Rovers Derby, March 1991. I was in the old East End singing "Holloway, Holloway, ollie, ollie, way, he gets the ball he does *uck all, ollie, ollie, way", in a game which we were far the better side but it was still 0-0. 10 mins from time Rovers get a pen, and Holloway steps up to take it, we are fearing he is going to have the last laugh..., but the penalty is weak and comfortably saved. Que that song being repeated loud and clear and then to cap it off we get the winner 2 mins from time...  magic 🙂

I remember hearing "You're gonna get your ******* heads kicked in"  the second the away side had the audacity to score a goal.

Yes, kiddies... these songs really were the norm in the 1970s and 80s

'if you're standing on a corner with a blue scarf round your neck, City boys will come and get you, and we'll break your f****** neck'

In the old (standing) East End, anyone else remember doing the 'ma nah me nah' song from the Muppets? Or is it just me?

Silence in the crowd and a simple 'Brrrriiiistol' chant (one of my fondest memories in the EE starting chants....)

Was watching some of 1998/99 season 'highlights' the other day...was a very poor season but a eventful one- and I heard this chant a few times on there, probably quite isolated though and the last vestiges but it featured a few times.

Sure that in recent years the old chants referred to on this thread have got an airing or a minor one at times.

Talking last 10 years, bit longer.

Bertie Mee said to Bill Shankley

have you heard of the north bank Highbury

Shanks said no I don't think so

but I've heard of the east end aggro

La la la etc

 

What was the old one about keeping off the east end? I can't remember the start of it but it was something like....

With hatchets and hammers

stanley knives and spanners

we'll show the bas**rds how to fight

you don't come on the east end when the city's on it

if you can't fight, fight, fight

Worst song is 'stand up if you hate the gas'

Should now be changed to "stand up if you remember the Gas..."

"You're so shit it's unbelievable" was a simple favourite from the Eighties. 😊

I remember back in 4th Division days it once being altered to "You're so shit you must be Aldershot!"

 

My personal favourite is "We'll keep the red flag flying high". Anthemic, stirring - and free from references to the Gas and/or violence.

Sadly the the song variety seems to be waning in AG these days.

If you'd come along to the Karaoke in the Giant Goram a while back you would have heard Mum belting out all the old East End classics.

I remember many many years ago in the EE bouncing up and down to “knees up mother brown” and finishing with ‘woah wooah what a rotten song, what a rotten song  and what rotten singers tooooa’

Must be 40 years since I heard that at AG.

Another short-lived chant, but when was it that the City fans were singing "Jacki, Jacki take the piss"?  Have the feeling it was against Wolves at home, but i could be wrong.
