Nothing more needs to be said,
on why I've started this thread,
no generic chants,
just original bants,
No mentions of 'my garden shed'.




It came to my attention today that the Carlisle fans at Hartlepool were singing:

woah-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh oooah,
mysterious Curle,
I wanna play 3-5-2.

Shame such awesome inventions only ever take place at away games these days; I'm sure I remember a time when you'd hear some good stuff at home games, but these days all we've got is ally-ally-ally-oh and similar songs (OK there's still 'Take me home Warwick Road' which is semi-original but not a lot else). I'd like to hear others... and we have a few from days gone by at Brunton Park but I'll leave those till later.

I guess you seen that on our forum? Sounds like a decent, original chant.
But the best part was when someone created this flag design :fl: :fl:

I remember when we signed Jabo, someone suggested we chant 'I think Ibehre leave right now, before we fall any deeper' if he wasn't any good.

Mysterious Curle design surely has to be the main contender to be turned into a full sized flag? Much rather have that than just a player design, although maybe we should spend a little more time editing the face first...

We all go where the Shaymen go, Halifax
We will follow you everywhere, we'll never let you down
We're gonna slay them, 'cause we're the Shaymen
Of Halifax Town

We had the following song of currently Mansfield manager and erstwhile Carlisle midfielder Adam Murray. Though the tune isn't original.

Adam Murray, woo-ooo-ooo-oah,
Adam Murray, woo-ooo-ooo-oah,
He's been to the priory,
He signed for a nominal fee,

Oh Ryan Harley, you are the love of my life,
Oh Ryan Harley, I'd let you shag my wife,
Oh Ryan Harley, I want ginger hair too.

Probably the weirdest song we sing. I always think I could do better than the ugg boot wearing ginge...

I always smile when I recall the first time that I heard "I Predict a Diet." It was pre-McNulty and probably involved Matt Redmile or possibly Lee McEvilly but the image is now lost in the mists of time.

Our standard offering now is:

You ate Barry Fry
You ate Barry Fry
You fat bastard
You fat bastard
You ate Barry Fry

Club Tropicana -
"We signed Okuonghae for free,
Love and sunshine, there's enough for everyone.."

Shame he ain't played yet.

We've also got Chumbawumba..
"Oh Danny Green, Danny Green, Danny Green, he gets knocked down, but he gets up again, you'll never beat Luton Town.." (I know, 27 defeats already this year)

Another -
"We've got Cameron McGeehan
We've got Nathan Doyle too
We've got Pelly Smudge Cuthbert
Playing in our orange white and blue
And when we're in the mood
We'll sing this song for you
Craig Mackail-Smith's a Hatter too.."

The chants of the 60's on the Holker Street End are largely long gone. Zigger Zagger still comes out (the fanzine of the time was the Zigger) but I only hear an equivalent of the last of the top 6 of the time:

Daisy, daisy...etc.

Aye, aye, aye, aye.
Else is better than Yashin
Mick Hartland is better than Eusebio and Leicester are in for a thrashing.

Those were the days my friend, behind the Holker End
We'd sing and dance for ever and a day
Ba Ba Ba Baa Barrow
Ba Ba Ba Baaaa Barrow.......

To the tune of Hey Jude - Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba Baaarow Baaarrow

Only given priority thanks to Carlisle United scanning, We used to play "Man Utd" in the Lancashire Cup

We hate Carlisle United,
We hate Workington too,
And Southport,
We hate Man United,
But Barrow we love you!
(all together now - repeat)

We have quite a few original songs I think.

To his 'orse, to his 'orse
He was saying goodbye to his 'orse
And as he was saying goodbye to his 'orse
He was saying goodbye to his 'orse

When I was young
I had no sense
I bought a flute
For 50 pence
The only tune
That I could play
Was fuck the Posh and the IRA (very old that one!!)

I remember Darlo used to sing to us 'we killed all your sheep' as Foot and Mouth was first detected in this country somewhere near Darlo.

I'd say for many Carlisle fans, the original song they remember us singing the most was the five-verse tribute to Chris Billy. Sung to the tune of Tom Hark (the same one Arsenal fans were singing Thierry Henry to at the time).

Thierry Henry, Thierry Henry,
isn't as good as Chris Billy.

Na-na-na-na...

I told my mate, the other day,
I think they've found, the new Pele,
My mate said who, who is he?
I said his name is Chris Billy.

Na-na-na-na...

Stevie Gerrard, can stay at Anfield,
cos Chris Billy is the king of midfield,

Na-na-na-na...

Zidane, Zidane, it's time to retire,
cos Chris Billy is the new messiah,

Na-na-na-na...

Now Georgie Best's been laid to rest,
Chris Billy here's your biggest test.
Can you live a life, of booze and girls,
and can you f**k, the next Miss World?

Na-na-na-na...

Genaro-ro-ro,
Came from Holland on a free,
Genaro-ro-ro,
Scored past Villa from the d,
Down the left, down the right,
Beats his man all fucking night,
He scores one, he scores two,
And we're goooonna win League Two.

Yet to take off because I just made it up, maybe need sumit better than rhyming two with two.

We sing a song called There's a woman in Brown..

Unfortunatley this is the best/only video of it I can find and it misses the main bit but you get the tune from it.

There's a woman in red, and she likes it in the bed
There's a woman in velvet, and she shits in coppers helmets
There's a woman in pink, and she makes your fingers stink
There's a woman in glitter, and she likes it up the shitter
There's a woman in green, and she used Vaseline
There's a woman in brown, and she loves the Mansfield Town..

Sadly the older songs don't get much use these days and it's all just that follow follow ultra shite and Since I was young I followed them shite.

Note, If you ever come to Field Mill the only chant you're likely to hear is Boooo

Orient have a number of unique chants, some unprintable and all terrible. "Scuba Diver" is probably the worst culprit.

Usually raises a chuckle when we start the hackneyed "Wooooooooooah" when a goalie is about to take a goal kick, but rather than telling him that he reminds us of faeces, we keep the noise going until it hits someone's head. Then we say "Boing" with every contact of the ball until it hits the floor. Oh how we laugh.

"We're having a party,
With Liverani,
He don't speak English,
But that's alrighty".

Evidence Orient fans should never be allowed to make up stuff.

Scuba Diver is the most horrific thing I've ever heard at a football match.

For the record Bristol Rovers 'Goodnight Irene' is the best song in the league. Closely followed by Notts County's wheelbarrow love.

No prizes for guessing what I've had stuck on my internal jukebox all fucking day.

Goodnight Irene is probably second only to the Scousers singing YNWA, I reckon.

I think Stockport singing The scarf my Father wore is up there

Funnily enough while looking for that on Youtube I came across a 3 part video of Stockport staying up when they drew with us on the last day of the season, and just watching the Stockport players celebrating for a bit, up pops a young Michael Raynes.

Yeah, I really like the Bristol Rovers one.

We've got one dedicated to our former player Adam Stansfield who passed away with bowl cancer just over 5 years ago.
Repeated on a loop:

We sing this song for our stanno...
And we will never let you gooo...
You'll always beeee...
At City with me.

Probably best at Portsmouth away a couple seasons back.
