These are some of my favorite chants I have heard in my time. Please feel free to add some of your favorites.

Wise Wise, You will do for me, You took Leeds to division three, Now they'll never win a cup, They'll never win a shield, and thier derby game is Huddersfield. (Courtesy of Jacko)

"You only sing when you're fishing, you only sing when you're fishing!"

Melbourne Victory versus the Central Coast Mariners (based in the seaside town of Gosford). 

"Where'd you park, Oh where'd you park, Oh where'd you park the Taxi?"From the same game where the traveling fans were small in number. (Courtesy of one of Quantas Socceroo Joey)

Archie, Archie Thompson,He's the number 10 for Victory, From a, town called Melbourne, He just destroyed your title dreams"

To the Flintstone's theme. From the Melbourne Victory v Adelaide United grand final 2007. Melbourne just destroyed Adelaide 6-0 with 5 goals from Archie Thompson. During the second half with Melbourne already up 4-0. To the Flintstones theme. (Courtesy of one of Quantas Socceroo Joey)

“Don’t blame it on the Biscan. Don’t blame it on the Hamann. Don’t blame it on the Finnan. Blame it on Traore.

He just can’t, he just can’t, he just can’t control his feet...” To the Jackson 5's Blame it on the Boogie. To Djimi "Wonky-Legs" Traore after the dance-it-across-the-line own-goal against Burnley.(Courtesy of David Gore)

"You should have signed for a big club" Sung to Fraizer Campbell by Hull City fans at White Hart Lane after signing on loan for Spurs from Manchester United in the Berbatov deal instead of re-signing for the Tigers. (Courtesy of Jacko)

"Theeeeo, Theo, Theo. Theo Theo Walcott. He's an Englishman at Arsenal."

Chanted to the tune of "an Englishman in New York" by Sting. Heard at the Emirates Stadium, in Arsenal's 2-1 FA Cup victory over Hull City.

"Two Andy Gorams, there's only two Andy Gorams!"

Heard when he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Very harsh.

"He's quick, he's red, he talks like father Ted, Robbie Keane!"


"He's big, he's red, his feet stick out of bed, Peter Crouch!"

Both Liverpool chants.

He's bald, He's scouse, He's gonna rob your house, Steve McMahon, Steve McMahon!

"You only live round the corner!" 

Chanted by Fulham fans to Man. Utd, during their recent 2-0 win.

"We've got more points than you!"

Chanated by Hull City fans to Newcastle supporters.

"We've got more fans than you!"

This was the Newcastle fans reply.

"When the ball hits your head and you sit in row Z, that's Zamora."

Sung about the poor shooting of Bobby Zamora to the tune of "That's Amore."

"He's blond, he's quick, His name's a porno flick, Emmanuel! Emanuel!"

A classic from Highbury about Petitt.

"Neville Neville, your play is immense, Neville Neville, you play in defense, Neville Neville, like Jacko you're bad, Neville Neville, the name of your dad"

To David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel," to honor Gary and Phil Neville when at Manchester United. One of the most original.

"Your mother is your sister, your father is your brother, you like to shag each other, The Ipswich Family."

Chanted to the Adams Family theme.

My personal favourite.

"No Silverware, we don't care, no silverware, we don't care."

Chanted by Hull City fans to any successful clubs with a few baubles in the trophy cabinet.
