Never heard that one,  fair play for remembering that many verses, don't think I'd ever remember that lot, let alone sing it.
It was one of the songs where one person sings the line then the Town End repeated it afterwards.

Around the time that we used to sing about "From the services at Leicester to the cells of Warrington, from the station at Colchester to the slums of Northampton, we'll follow over England and one day Europe too, cos we all follow the Swindon we are the famous South Side crew."

Remember that one but the dinkle song definitely passed me by.   You mean it was sung like the 'everywhere we go oooooo.....' one ?.

Remember this one from '69 era.
For the great Stan Harland to the tune Mammie

Stanley, Stanley
Walk a million miles for one of your Smiles
Oh Stanley

Who could we use this one for now?  Maybe Jerry Yates as his is not the best

Also think the ditty that is sung for Steven Benda - We have a 'Big Fucking German' is maybe not the most complementary!!

Maybe Shirley Basseys 'Heh big Spenda'

TBF there was never more than about 200 of us sinfing it in the Town End as attendances back then were about 2,500 to 3,000 at most.

Do you remember Adi Ellsworth, Ollie and Stabber? they were the chief architects of the song.

I think they got banning orders from all grounds back in the mid/late 80s but still go to games now.

Remember Ollie, possibly Adi, but don't recall Stabber, isn't strange,  was only thinking a short while ago I'd not seen Ollie for a while. There must be many regulars from those days who are now stored at the back of the brain,  just needs someone to give you a nudge and usually it all comes back.

I remember at Colchester away just before PDC left (that game!), STFC fans spontaneously burst into a tune of "your mum's got saggy tits" to the tune of la belle e mobile which PDC's name was frequently sung to.

The one I don't understand is the ' so and so is a shithole I  want to go home' why sing about it,  if you don't like it,  just fuck off home !!.

Very much this!! Smiley

I still like the musical and narrative twists of "I heard that Robert Maxwell went to Rome to see the Pope" so much that I've taught it to my kids, who only enjoy singing it because of the sweary bits.

I'm a terrible father.

Disappointingly a Man Utd chant way before we got our hands on it. Although you levelled up as a dad for teaching the kids that version!

Usually used just to wind people up,     I.e. fans singing to us .......  Small Town in Oxford etc.   Now that would wind us up.
But it doesn't make sense though.

I heard that Robert Maxwell went to Rome to see the Pope
I heard that Robert Maxwell went to Rome to see the Pope
I heard that Robert Maxwell went to Rome to see the Pope
I heard that Robert Maxwell went to Rome to see the Pope
And this is what he said
Who the fuck are Oxford United
Who the fuck are Oxford United
Who the fuck are Oxford United
And the reds go marching on, on on

Etc

It came from the Pope JP2 was the pope and he was a Liverpool fan and Man Utd fans sang it.

"The famous Man Utd went to Rome to see the Pope" etc

 I made up a chant once..... it was in response to the sale of Dennis (Bullets) Brown in 67.

 Herman's Hermits, No Milk Today, the theme....



 No goals today... Dennis Brown has gone away.  Danny stands forlorn a symbol that he's gorn.  

I tried it out on the the Rimes to Shrewsbury.   It didn't catch on  Smiley
