Chants and songs you don't hear any more ...
 
I don't know why, but on the way back from a recent Palace game I remembered a terrace song that used to be sung all the time - but you never hear any more (for those who don't remember it, the tune was "Oh My Darling, Clementine"):

Whose your father,
Whose your father,
Whose your father referee,
You ain't got one,
You're a bastard,
You're a bastard, referee,

Another dull but ubiquitous song was:

Crystal Palace,
Crystal Palace,
We'll support you ever more ...
We'll support you ever more

(Tune - "Men of Harlech")

Any more 70s/80s songs/chants that were once familiar but now defunct?

"We hate Nottingham Forest
" We hate Liverpool too
" We hate West Ham United
" But Palace we love you "

No idea why these teams were particularly disliked, think it was a generic chant that did the rounds in those days :afro:

To the tune of 'Give Peace A Chance' (from our first Division One days)
"All We Are Saying Is Give Us A Goal".

Others will no doubt come to mind!

BERT'S HEAD 03-02-2013 04:50 PM

At any away game - eg Sheffield

"In your Sheffield slums
" You look in the dustbin for something to eat
" You find a dead cat and you think it's a treat
" In your Sheffield slums "

Aye yai yai yai, Jackson is better than Yashin

That is exactly the sort of old-fashioned, very common, terrace song I had in mind. It has just disappeared.

We're top of the league,
We're top of the league
We're Crystal Palace.
We're top of the league.

The red and blue train came over the hill
She blew She Blew
The red and blue train came over the hill
She blew she blew
The red and blue train came over the hill
It's Palace 3 and Brighton Nil
La la la la la la and Palace go marching on :p

We All Agree, Crystal Palace are Magic
We All Agree, (insert team) are Tragic

Dambusters theme. Fond boyhood memories of that cascading down from the back of the Holmesdale Terrace on chilly floodlit nights. That and, of course, the old PA-LACE (clap-clap-clap). Happy days. :)
