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

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

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.
