To the tune of Love Plus One by Haircut 100:

Where do we go from here?
Is it down to the park in fear?
Nice try the ICF
But bye bye bye bye bye ICF
Hear the call
Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers)
This is for our club
Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers)
We won't be fobbed off
Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers) We're here out of love
Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers) Sing (Hammers)
We march on.

Oh what a circus! Oh what a show!
West Ham has gone to town
Over the death of an home called Boleyn
We've all gone crazy
Mourning all day and mourning all night
Falling over ourselves to get all, of the misery right

Oh what an exit! That's how to go!
When they're ringing your curtain down
Demand to be demolished like the Boleyn
It's quite a sunset
And good for the chairmen in a roundabout way
We've made the front pages of all, the world's papers today

But who is this Boleyn?
Why all this howling hysterical sorrow?
What kind of goddess has lived among us?
How will we ever get by without her?

She had her moments--she had some style
The best show in town was the crowd
Outside the Kens Cafe crying, "Our Boleyn"
But that's all gone now
As soon as the smoke from the funeral clears
We're all gonna see and howl, she did nothing for years!

You let down your people Sullivan
You were supposed to have been the saviour
That's all they wanted
Not much to ask for
But in the end you could not deliver

If we do get to march at some stage then may I suggest:

"Where's our famous ICF?"

Apologies to any black sheep reading

Blah blah Brady you are full of bull
Just like Goldie and the other tool

One of you’s a b*stard
Another's just a pain
And not a single one of you has any shame!

Has anyone combined “blue flag” with a certain product related to our owners’ other businesses

could change the third line to “you sold our soul, sold Upton Park”

Simple and to the point if you could get everyone singing it at an away game...it probably is in poor taste and we’d likely get in trouble or fined for it, although then maybe the owners would have to pay that fine...might be even more effective than a march in that case, they’d either have to kick out everyone singing it (hopefully everyone), or fine the club

Edit: just saw Yonni’s post...late to the punch here

This is very negative I’m afraid but if the David’s avoid investment again in summers window then I think this would be pretty good chant. No need to adapt the lyrics and just sing on repeat.

My old man said support Sullivan,
and I said **** off he's a ku..nt.
I'd rather f...uck a bucket with a big hole in it,
than let him stay for one more minute.

Manuel Pellegrini

To the tune of the INSPIRAL CARPETS classic - "This Is How It Feels":

    This is PELLEGRINI! (His hair's grey!)

Funny you say that, I looked him up on Wikipedia earlier to see his goal scoring record and found the following passage which made for interesting reading:

In a match in October 2015, Yarmolenko committed a dangerous challenge which almost broke Shakhtar Donetsk player Taras Stepanenko's leg. The two reconciled after the game and exchanged jerseys, but afterwards Yarmolenko threw Stepanenko's shirt on the ground while he thanked the Dynamo fans. In the Shakhtar–Dynamo derby in April 2016, after the former won 3–0, Stepanenko stepped in front of the Dynamo fans kissing his Shakhtar badge. In a brawl that escalated, Yarmolenko kicked Stepanenko to the ground.

Andriy Yarmolenko

To the tune of the THE FOUR TOPS - "Loco In Acapulco":

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U-5jxhSNDU


    #" 'Cos we're going Loco for Andriy Yarmolenko,
    So we sing these songs,
    Yes West Ham's going Loco for Andriy Yarmolenko,
    The magic in his feet's so strong

    [REPEAT]

Wouldn't it be awesome if we could get The Four Tops to perform it @ half-time on his home debut?
Personal dream of mine.. :lol:

This one to welcome our 2018 Summer Transfer Window newbies:

To the tune of the SNAP! - "Rhythm is a Dancer":

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHU2m785so4


    #" Anderson's a dancer,
    Andriy's our wide-man answer,
    Wilshere's running everywhere

    Fredericks sprints like he's on crack,
    Got Diop at Centre-Back,
    Fabianski flies through the air!

    Ooohhhhh!
    Balbuena!
    Ooohhhhh!
    Pelligrini's in our prayers

    Ooohhhhh!
    This West Ham's magic,
    Ooohhhhh!
    Pelligrini's in our prayers

Loving some of these :lol:

Just a shame we never had t'internet and this thread back in the day as I would have loved to have suggested that we goaded our opponents about our mid-90s "hitman" with Heaven 17s classic...

"Crushed by the goals of Iain Dowie
Crushed by the goals of Iain Dowie
Crushed by the goals of Iain Dowie
Crushed by the goals, wooh, wooh"

repeat infinitum :scarfer:
