    Being very lazy here, but can someone give me the correct words to that Adams family chant about the Warriors please?

    Also, we won if two times chant (and many others) – does anyone know the name of the actual original tune, or where/what it’s from?

    Thank you kindly.

    Oh, and the Scousers “we won it five times” chant – what are the exact words to that third line? Is it “in Istanbul”?

    Is it blatantly obvious I’m researching a blog, yet?

    The tune is Sloop John B by the Beach Boys.

    They’re dirty and they’re smelly
    They come from Scholes and Whelley
    They haven’t got a telly
    The Warriors family

    and

    We won it at Wem-ber-ley,
    We won it in Gay Parie,
    In 77 and 84 it was Rome
    We’ve won it 5 times
    We’ve won it 5 times
    In Istanbul
    We won it 5 times
    (To the tune of Sloop John B by Beach Boys as Jonny said)

    I wanna go home
    I wanna go home
    I feel so broke up
    I wanna go home

    I’m playing in goal
    I’m playing in goal
    My knees are knackered
    I’m playing in goal

    There was an other verse made up which went on about ‘ In Ancient Greece….we’ll win it six times’ as well, but they didn’t, so it disappeared fast!

    My mate had a spare for Anfield against Olympiakos, back in 2005. (The Gerrard “you beauty!” goal match). Have to be honest and say it was probably the most electric atmosphere I have ever witnessed. 40,000 people singing “Fields Of Anfield Road” to the tune of Fields Of Athenry did actually sound pretty good, I have to say. I heard old timers say it matched the St Ettienne atmosphere from 1977.

    I always thought the rugby song went “They’re SCRUFFY and they’re smelly”…?

    Have you noticed that song that Swansea fans sing? Heard it a lot on highlights and it sounds very Welsh and very…well, choiral.

    “Hymns and Arias” – it’s in English (as it would be for Swansea) but I agree always sounds very Welsh.

    And we were sing-ing
    Hymns and Arias
    Land of my Fathers
    Ar hyd y Nos

    Just print off a copy of this thread using a colour printer, punch two holes in and slot it into a ring binder.

    Put the following title onto a white sticky back label ” Sing up you c’hants” and bang it on the front of the binder. B)

    Run a few thousand copies off and stand outside the springy stand a couple of hours before the Liverpool game. I’m sure at about £2.87 a go you should get a few shifted. Autograph um and up the price to £2.94.and….Voilla, job sorted. goodpost

    From Matlock to ManU
    What a journey!

    I always thought it was:

    They’re stinky and they’re smelly
    They come from Scholes and Whelley
    They can’t afford a telly
    The Wigan Warriors

    I have been known to be wrong on an occasion though…

    Close enough, Lemur. Thanks

    Last question, the tune to which my current favourite is sung “Is there a fire drill” which is the same time as the “Paulo di Canio” chant sung by West Ham, and countless others, is from what? I’m sure it’s another opera thing, is it not?

    Very sad – but I know this without Googling.

    It’s “La donna e mobile” from Verdi’s Rigaletto.

    :blush: to know it
