Best to not take the lyrics entirely at face value lads.

HEITS seems to have taken on more poignancy in the last couple of years, with quite a few youngish ex villa players dying, Atkinson, Ugo, Jloydd. Maybe that’s just how I see it.

...I,ll be happy to post the words to; " As I walked out on the steps of the Holte End" .....with a warning that it may offend....I first heard it in the Aston Tavern , circa 1975

A Holte End Lament. I’ve only ever heard it sung in pubs by a handful of people, never in the ground

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

I’d almost forgotten that it’s been so long.

I have to say
“We’re all part of Barton’s army
We’re all going to Rotterdam
And we’ll really shake ‘em up
When we win the Euro cup
‘cos Villa are the greatest Football Team”

Was just so so special for a young lad.

The classic Villa, Villa, Villlllllaaaa

And as stated earlier
C’mon Villa C’mon Villa C’mon Villa, C’mon
Was a special kind of spirit raising.

I always have a soft spot for my old Dad shouting excitedly  “Skin him Des” as a certain Mr Bremner took on his man on the right. *Very happy days*

Back in the last few months of 1980/81 season I remember us singing “win the league, win the league, win the league, win the league, win the league, win the league, win the league, win the league, win the league, win the league, WIN THE LEAGUE!”

Probably more of a plea than a chant

Yeah, that was a popular one that season. Almost like we collectively sussed it was within our reach before anyone else did.

Come to villa park and you will see ,
Ansells brewery and M&B,
We dont drink whiskey and we dont drink rum,
We are the villa boys from brum.

Seem to recall it was

“We are the boot boys from Brum”

RIP "Ginge"

Ginge takes more of a starring role in this one (NSFW):

Yeah classic that was. Good lad Ginge spent many a Villa game staying in the pub with him and missing the match.

Does anyone remember this one? To the tune of "you're the oldest swinger in town" an Irish folk song:
"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.

"Bertie Mee said to Bill Shankly
'Have you heard of the North Bank Highbury?'
Bill says 'No I don't think so,
But I've heard of the Villa Holte End'"

One for the oldies... so, that'll be most of you then!
