Songs that Time Forgot

Comments (37)

Reading the thread that called for the return of "We shall not be moved" (which brought back a memory of a great rendition at Old Trafford in the 1971 FA Cup semi-final) made me think of other songs which time may have truly forgotten. It's time I think to bring them all back. So let me start off with two from the 60s.

Firstly to the tune of 'Michael Row the Boat Ashore' let's give a rousing chorus of 'Send St John to Vietnam!'. And then there was the curious 'Bertie Mee said to Bill Shankly 'Have you heard of the North Bank Highbury? 'No' said Shanks, 'I can't say that I have, but I've heard of the famous Street End!

So to take our minds off the silly transfer rumour season, let's bring on the best forgotten songs. COYB

"One goal at a time Bob Latchford, thats all we’re asking of you. If you hit the bar, we’ll all say aahhhhh!!!!!! One goal at a time." Anybody remember this one from 1979-80? It was sung to the tune of ’one day at a time’, which, (unbelievably now), was in the charts at the time. Sung by Lena Martell I think. Totally naff but brings back memories...

A sample verse from the 60s...

Bless ?em All, Bless ?em All
May Goodison?s gates never fall
They?re Merseyside?s Pride, they?re a wonderful side
So come on the lads, Bless ?em All
{Happy Days}

Not forgotten, but I was reminded of it last night when the Spanish fans started singing the tune (El Cielito Lindo, is it called?)

"We all agree - Duncan Mackenzie is magic!" From the Street End, it sounded like an echo as the sound from the Park End arrived a second ot two later.

Anyone old enough to remember
"We all agree,
West is better than Yashin,

Young is better than Eusebio,
and Liverpools in for a thrashin?"

We used to sing out ....

"Trio, tri-i-i-o, Rotterdam, Wembley and the Championship too" to the tune of "Day-oh". Had to stop singing it when the Manure fucked the treble up. But it was nice to be able to sing about chasing three pots, having already secured two of them.

I used to like, "Fuck off McMahon, Fuck off McMahon, Fuck off McMahon" repeated 50 times.

Great that was.

One from the late 1960’s I think, to the tune of "The Mighty Quinn" ( a Bob Dylan song I think) by Manfred Mann -
" Come On Without
Come On Within
You’ll not see nothing like the mighty Everton"

Just remembered a more recent song from Wembley 1995: I am not sure if it’s the correct spelling of the name - but you all know who it is !!!
"He’s French
He’s banned
He’s watching from the stands

There’s a few I vaguely recall that we used to sing. Anyone recall the words to the likes of ’Welcome Home’, ’Born is the King of Goodison Park’ or ’Anfield Road the say its a wonderful place’?

I think the classic ?What's our name? Everton. What's our name? Everton" would sound truely great from the Street End again. Also we should all (especially in the Gwladys)sing the players' names before kick-off like in the 80s ? that was a great tradition.

Anyone remember this one? It is still the funniest song I?ve heard at GP...

(When we are playing Man Utd)

"Posh Spice is a slapper, she is a fuccking whore, and when she?s shagging Beckham, she thinks of Joe Max Moore! OH... Joe Max Moore, how do ya like it how do ya like it, Joe Max Moore, how do ya like it how do ya like it" etc etc

They come from Dingle, Garston
They come from Bootle too
They come from every part of the globe
To cheer the boys in blue
Oh yea its E V ---E R T AN NO AN N
The finest team in all the land
And they call it EVERTON.

There are more verses ------ oh, and this one:

St John is a monkey, he's always messing around.

I loved singing "Going down, going down, going down" against Charlton in 1998 (I think) only for their fans to sing back "So are we, so are we, so are we..."

Serves us right.

70’s and early 80’s -

Us in Park End - ’The Park End’
replied to by Street End - ’The Street End’

Bouncing off each - one end then the other.

Defo players names before kick off.

Favourite from those days though -
’You are my Everton, my only Everton,
You make me happy when skies are grey,
You’ll never how much I love you,
So please don’t take my Everton away.
Nah,nah,nah,nah,nah - nah, nah, nah, nah nah ..............

Terracing then so on the ’Nahs’ everyone went mad.

Today I still laugh everytime - Newcastle United - ’Never won fuck all.’

’The Park End, The Park End, The Park End.’

I remember last time I went the match, we used to sign an old Celtic song called ’It’s a Grand Ol Team to play for.

It would make the hairs stand up on the back of your necks in the ol boys pen.

I remember before the start of the 1984 FA cup final, despite being merrily pissed, Elton John came over to wave to the Everton fans complete with silly boater hat. He of course left recent wife Renata (or was it Renee) in the stands. As he neared our end of the ground, the whole of Everton support burst into.........

?He?s bald, he?s bent, his arse is up for rent, Elton John, Elton John..........?

Well needless to say he didn?t stick around to long.

Some are best forgotten. Remember late sixties.. Alan Ball, Alan Ball (repeated) to the tune of Silent Night. Or Everton Everton Everton FC to the tune of Jennifer Juniper. Christ my toes curl just thinking about it.
Mind you I did like The Everton Attack to the tune of My Autumn Almanac

Oh isn?t it great to be an Evertonian
Isn?t it great to follow the men in the royal blue.
I don?t wanna be a red.
I?d rather be friggin? well dead.

From the 1984 Final directed at Elton John...

"He?s fat,He?s round,his arse drags on the ground,Elton John,Elton John"


"He?s fat,He?s queer,he takes it up the rear,Elton John,Elton John"

Very non-PC but who gives a fuck.

Actually, probably Elton John,Elton John...

Good song Harvey! I thought that was going to be one called "These boots are made for shooting", I don’t know if we had a version of that but I heard a few other teams sing it.

I heard Chelsea once sing one about Throwing bricks at Roger Hunt, and Anfield being a brothel with Roger Hunt the biggest cunt!

If we didn’t have a version of that, we missed a trick!
