While searching through more traditional calypso songs, I came across this one:


MANCHESTER UNITED CALYPSO
(as sung by Edric Connor)

Now, football is a pleasent game,
Played in the sun, played in the rain,
And the team that gets me excited,
Is Manchester United.

Manchester,
Manchester United.
A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes,
They deserve to be knighted.

If ever they're playing in your town,
You must get to that football ground.
Take a look and you will see,
Football taught by Matt Busby.

Manchester,
Manchester United.
A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes,
They deserve to be knighted.

They are the greatest team today,
If you don't believe it go see them play.
The type of football, second to none,
'Cos they're at the top of Division One!

Manchester,
Manchester United.
A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes,
They deserve to be knighted.

If ever they're playing in your town,
You must get to that football ground.
Take a look and you will see,
Football taught by Matt Busby.

Manchester,
Manchester United.
A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes,
They deserve to be knighted.

It's the greatest thrill that you've ever seen,
They are known as a soccer machine.
They are the best, there is no doubt,
So raise a cheer and give a shout.

Manchester,
Manchester United.
A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes,
They deserve to be knighted.

Still sung most weeks - or at least the chorus is.

Nice find, Joe. Now give us one about City! Maybe the Manchester Blues? :-)

BTW - A better known United folk song, The Flowers of Manchester, will almost certainly be sung at Swinton, first Monday in July when Geoff Higginbottom is on.

Blatant advert mode off...

:D tG
