    Let the new lads feel at home….

    I would walk ten thousand miles
    And I would walk ten thousand more
    Just watch Gary Caldwell
    And to see James McCarthy Score
    Na-na-na-na
    Na-na-na-na
    etc

    Here’s an uplifting song:
    (To the tune of Blake’s Jerusalem. No chance this will ever be sung.)

    And did his feet in ancient times
    Walk upon old Springfield grass?
    And did this man who came from Spain
    Say to fans ‘Gracias’?
    He came, he played, and now he’s back
    With Hugo and Zog in attack
    And we’ll support Roberto’s team
    In Wigan’s green and pleasant land

    Or we can really dumb-down…

    He’s here
    He’s there
    He’s covered in red hair
    Mac-Carthy, Mac-Carthy

    Standish,
    2 of the more creative members of the V100s have been working on a homage to our favourite tufty-haired Trinidadian, to the tune of Flower of Scotland. It goes something like:-

    “Oh Jason Scotland, when will you score…
    A go-ooal for u-us, and hear us roar.”

    It goes on to request he scores from a corner or even a “pen-al-teee”

    It is struggling for a number of reasons:-

    1, we don’t know the real words of the song to adapt
    2, we don’t know the correct melody or meter
    3, this is the West Stand – who are we kidding?
    4, even the V100 evangelists have little enthusiasm for it
    5, it will be redundant as soon as he scores… so actually, I suppose it has the potential to run and run, I guess :lol:

    I do like that idea…..

    I know the tune, but haven’t a clue of the words. As I have the next two days at home building Lego things and watching Scooby Doo, I feel a Googled ‘Flower Of Scotland’ coming on.

    It doesn’t help that the two lads trying to sing it have voices like a cinder trapped under a door.

    Sounds like a new club song along with You are my sunshine.

    If just a few of you sing it, it will soon catch on, give a try.
    What’s the bets if it catches on the club will nick it and play it over the tannoy?

    O flower of Scotland
    When will we see
    Your like again
    That fought and died for
    Your wee bit hill and glen
    And stood against him
    Proud Edward’s army
    And sent him homeward
    Tae think again

    What sort of a song is that? It doesn’t even rhyme.

    Oh Jason Scotland
    When will we see
    You score a goal?
    You hit the post again
    Aim your banjo at a cow’s @rse
    You’re there for flick ons
    To hold up the ball
    And put Hugo through
    Tae score again

    Can’t see this one catching on, and I hope your mates do a better job. For the record, I also have a voice like a blocked drain.

    Yes, I think this was the main challenge the V100 song-writing division faced. However, with the 90-120 minute car journey to go on Saturday morning, I’m sure we can have a bash at improving on your effort. :( Cow’s @rse, indeed. :shock:

    Yes well, Squire – you keep to your chavvy-type songs, if you want. ;)

    Meanwhile, I have downloaded both the lyricsd AND the sheet music for Flower of Scotland (bite me, Standish!) and will be mostly working on a new arrangement, forthwith. :ugeek:

    I hope you’re taking a pitch pipe Griff. Otherwise, it will just ruin it if it’s in the wrong key.

    Standishwalker, that Jerusalem is a corker.

    I am a lover of a good football song something that the muppets in ES2 just cant grasp. Take a catchy and well known tune and put some words to it not take somebody elses song and change a few words.

    Some of my favourites are the one that West Brom sing to the tune of the lords my shepard, Man Utd U-N-I-T-E-D,united are the team for me. liverpools field of anfield road and Millwalls come down to the den.

    I thought of changing the words to Jerusalem a while ago but for the life of me cant think of anywords, i was never good at anything like that. Me and my lad have been singing Oh Jason Scotland since we bought him but couldnt think of anything else.

    The other season just before that latics text thing started (not had anything of them for ages) i went around ES2 and ES3 with a couple of songs printed out on paper, i must have handed out about 200. Both songs were took of people who had posted on here but because there was more than 2 lines and didnt repeat themselves nobody could get grasp it.

    Good luck with the Jerusalem one. Do you not fancy meeting for a pint and we can see if there is owt else we can come up with.
