Classic Leicester songs and chants

For some reason Daydreamer Believer came on my Spotify stream earlier. I naturally started berating Mark McGhee (as any LCFC fan around my age and older would). Got me thinkin' - that song was in my opinion an LCFC classic. I thought I'd cause a bit of a welcome distraction by asking everyone to not only list their favourite LCFC songs, but also add the era/years that they were sang and an occasion/match when you last either sang it (or at least hummed it in your head). I'm sure there will be various interpretations of the lyrics - be good for people to 'correct' the lyrics if the poster got them a bit skew-iffy.

I'll list a couple to get you started:

**** OFF MARK MCGHEE (to the tune of Daydream Believer by the Monkees)

**** off Mark McGhee
Oh what can it mean (to a)
Fat Scottish bastard (and a)
Shite football team

Sang pretty much all season after Judas mkII left for Wolves. I sang it this morning!

-----------

Super Stevie Claridge (unsure if the tune had any origin other than the football terraces)

Super, super Steve
Super, super Steve
Super, super Steve
Super Stevie Claridge

Sang for the back end of the promotion via play-offs season, especially at Wembley vs Palace, and most of the following season including at Wembley again vs Middlesbrough. It seemed that in the walk up to the two towers, anyone who even so much as thought of the word 'Super' would start that chant. It was addictive! Also made me laugh when a 'boro fan thought it was 'hilarious' that we were singing their 'Ravanelli' song. Were we? I sang it in my head at Wembley and started a big rendition of it (I think).

-----------

David Speedie walks on water (to the tune of Deck the Halls (with Boughs of Holly)

David Speedie walks on water
Everybody knows that bullshit floats

Sang season post-playoff defeat one vs Blackburn until Speedie joined us and became a bit of a legend. Sang it at Christmas.

Songs from the 60s and 70s - enjoy!


There is a shed - a sacred shed
A shed - where no-one dare wear red
And if - you're from - F!"£$t - you're dead
It's called - the Leicester - Spion Kop
Oy!

(to a tune that Jeff will probably know)

-----------------------------------------------------


Tiptoe - through the Trent End
With a hammer - and a sawn off shot gun
Tiptoe - through the Trent End
With me

(to the tune of Tiptoe through the Tulips by Tiny Tim)

------------------------------------------------------


And also:

Tiptoe - through the West End
With yer 'andbag - and a ten bob lipstick
Tiptoe - through the West End
With me

(to the tune of Tiptoe through the Trent End by the City Faithful)

Note 1 for the youngsters: The West End was where the home fans stood at Highfield Road.

Note 2: It might have been two bob. I really can't remember how much lipstick cost in those days.

Note 3: Highfield Road was where Cov played before the Ricoh, Sixfields, the Ricoh again and St Andrews.

Note 4 for the youngsters and forgetful oldsters: Ten bob is 50p in the new money.

----------------------------------------------------------

Occasional second verse for either of the above:

You can stick it - up yer arse'ole
If you want to - if you don't, you needn't
Tiptoe - (etc)


I never really understand the point of this one!

---------------------------------------------------------

I hear the sound - of Distant Bums
Over there - over there
And do they smell? - like ****ing hell
Over there - over there

(To the tune of Distant Drums by Jim Reeves)

------------------------------------------------------

To his horse - to his horse
He was saying goodbye to his horse
And while he was saying goodbye to his horse
He was saying goodbye to his horse

and repeat


Claimed by fans from Charlton to Torquay but sadly became popular with City fans after they sang it to the copper whose horse broke its leg on Tottenham High Road - probably most who sang it never knew about this incident though.
An old navy song which referred to a girlfriend as a horse (derivation of whore?)

Anybody who is interested in old songs should have been at the Goldstone for a City game (it was a night match) in the 90s. The fence was specifically designed with curves to obstruct the view of the away fans; the match was as boring as ****. City fans amused themselves by singing all the old songs - and I do mean all of them. The evening should have been catalogued!

To the tune of London Bridge is falling down, whenever the presence of police was detected.

Harry Roberts is our friend, is our friend, is our friend,
Harry Roberts is our friend, he kills coppers.

In similar vein:

I'll sing you a song
And it won't take long
All coppers are bastards

I'll sing you another
Just like the other
All coppers are bastards.

And one that was popular in 1978, 1981, 1987 and other relegation years:

(to the tune of 'You're not fit to referee')

Leicester City,
Leicester City,
We'll support you when you score,
We'll support you when you score.

I recall the Toon Army singing a second verse to this:

Shoots the bastards with a gun,
With a gun, with a gun.
Shoots the bastards with a gun,
We hate coppers.

I recall being "sang" some old songs by my dad back in the 90s whilst on holiday.

Does any one know this one? Probably from the 60s.... and I'm sure to get the words wrong but bear with me.....


Do you kin(?) the boys from the hunting shire?
Do you see the thrust? Do you hear the fire?
And the boys in blue.....
Will see us through
And the cup will be ours in the morning.

Also, was this a song?

Hello Leicester hello
Hello Leicester hello
And City will win and then you'll know it's goodbye Tottenham, goodbye.
 
On the 5th day of Christmas my true love gave to me
5 Ormondroyds....
4 Ormondroyds
3 Ormondroyds
2 Ormondroyds
There's only one Ian Ormondroyd
