We did this one for the first time at the last match. We’re gonna do it again this weekend. Couldn’t be simpler:

(To the tune of “Those Were The Days”… no, not the Edith Bunker one)

Come on you girls in red, come on you girls in red
Come on you girls, come on you girls in red
Come on you girls in red, come on you girls in red
Come on you girls, come on you girls in red

To get the melody, here’s Mary Hopkin doing it (you want the chorus which starts at 00:38):

Here’s Portland’s own Chervona doing it (jump to 3:25 for the chorus):

And here’s the melody (as “Come On You Boys in Blue”) when a bunch of Dublin footy fans do it!

And finally, here’s a bonus version with great hair (chorus starts at 00:57, but this one is worth watching in full):

  1. I really dig this one. (Not sure where I know the tune from, sounds vaguely balkan to me). If this is the same one that was tried during the Boston game I think I know why I didn’t recognize it. The drumming makes it sound really square and un-syncopated — in my memory it has more of a om-pah om-pah feel too it.
