Just wondering what is peoples favourite songs / chants
I taught my 3 year old kid my favourite, which he sings as roughly
"Niiiiigel Spink
throw the dah de dah de
ba da de dah, ba da de dah
on to Tony Daalllleyy
Tony Daley doo de doo
la da Torpeeeeeedoo
do da doo de do da do
It's Tony Cas-car-iiiii-no!"

He sings that at pretty much everyone now, much to my amusement (and their bewilderment).

"Allez, allez, allez" can get done to death a bit but happy memories of that during the promotion run. Notable mention to Rotherham away. First time I heard it was Sheff U away earlier that season when we were getting hammered and a couple of blokes nearby were singing it all second half. Made a pleasant change from the endless stream of aggressive bile being spouted by the bloke behind me.

I have high hopes the estrangement of fans from grounds will kill that one off.

Big turning point that season and the Rotherham fan in front seemed to spend more time watching the Villa fans than the game. :)

Agreed, sung nice and slowly but one that seems to be dying out. The game that sticks out in my mind is the LC final 2nd replay against Everton where it just seemed to rumble out of the stands for ages.

Not a fan of singing TBAR at all.

Big Fat Ron's claret and blue army.....

I know it's (insert manager name here) now but as far as I remember that was the original, remember it being sung all the way through half time at Hillsborough.

Also;
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, oh I do like to be beside the sea
Oh I do like to stroll along the prom prom prom
Where the Villa fans sing, f**k off West Brom , and Birmingham, and Zulus.....

+1 for The Bells are Ringing

Villa (clap clap clap) Villa (clap clap clap) - especially when the Trinity Road joined in stamping their feet

Jingle Bells, jingle bells,  jingle all the way
Oh what fun, it is to see, the Villa win away

There's a circus in the town (in the town)
Barry Fry is a clown (is a clown)
Karren Brady is a f***** s***
Birmingham are going down (going down)

At away games : Villa Boys we are here, shag your women and drink your beer

Oh Birmingham, is full of fun, oh Birmingham is full of fun
Its full of t*ts, fanny and the Villa,
oh Birmingham is full of fun

and after a sublime piece of skill from Sir Gordon Cowans, that under the breath chant of "Sid", almost a hiss,  followed by rapid clapping that I could never get right


God, there's loads !

I love the original version of the Wild Rover song we used to sing. “ we’re by far the greatest the world’s ever seen” much better than when we started copying other clubs by adding “team” to the lyrics. Hard to explain without actually singing it but it makes sense to me. When did we stop singing the original version?

I remember it during the relegation season and then through Taylor's early years but by 1990 I think it had died out.
The emphasis was on ever and the has prior wasn't there.

Originally "the world's EVER seen", changed to "the world has ever seen", diminishing.

Fucking hell, I need to get out more....

There’s a Facebook group called Aston Villa - Down Memory Lane, where the composer of HEITS and Steps of the Holte End.is actually posting. A hero of mine. I think the words of Steps of the Holte End was my first post on this site.

Here’s HEITS:

Went walking down the Witton Lane
One dark and dusky day
I spied a poor city fan
A-running far away
I said to that poor city fan
it’s time for you to die
He said “yes I know sir...
Holte Enders in the sky

He ran down the terraces
and fell towards the gate,
Little did he know that death
was sure to be his fate
He had one more short hour to live
and then he’d hear the cry
That ev’ry city fan does fear
Holte Enders in the sky

Their fists felt just like granite
and their pockets lined with lead
And if they catch a city fan
he’s sure to wind up dead
Cuz Villa fans rule Birmingham
and city fans know why
Cuz they have seen the glory of
Holte Enders in the sky.

You’re welcome👍

Nothing as eerily Villa as Holtenders in the sky on a cold November or December as it gets dark and the floodlights come on.

The Holte always sang the bells are ringing when I first started going in the early 80s.

HEITS, unique to us and as close to a club anthem as we'll get. 14k in the Holte singing it is pretty spine tingling and will certainly be in the first full VP post Covid.

I remember the full lyrics being posted in another thread sometime last year and was a bit shocked as didn't realise the full chant was as dark as that!

Was just so so special for a young lad.

"When the Blues are away and there's nothing to do,
You take a trip down to Dudley zoo,
And the monkeys there take the piss outta you,
You're the only Blue nose in town.

They've tried Saunders and Rioch an Little 'n all,
They've tried a hundred years and never done fuck all,
They've done fuck all still and they never will,
You're the only Blue nose in town"

Heard that in pubs many times but never heard it sung at the ground.

. Yep, or "Leeds and.....". It was a movable feast!
We have had some strange ones also in years gone by,
Late 60,s anyone remember " goodbye horse, goodbye horse, he was saying goodbye to his horse, and as he was saying goodbye to his horse he was saying goodbye to his horse"
God knows what that was about
Also remember some sort of version to Peado Rolf,s  two little boys

. Yes, like the others I remember the 'horse' song and also haven't got a clue what it was all about.
"Bring out Arsenal, Man United
Bring on the Spaniards by the score
Barcelona, Real Madrid they will make a gallant bid
But they won't beat the Villa any more... ore... ore
They won't beat the Villa any more"

I remember that first line as ‘Bring on Spurs and Man United.’
