Aston Villa Songs Volume 1: The Classics

 

To most of you the below Aston Villa songs will be more than familiar. Still, after a period of diminishing attendances over the last five years and now with the prospect of Tim Sherwood reversing that trend and bringing back the good times to Villa Park, it might be time to address the old problem of the lack of atmosphere at the ground.

First off, let’s make sure every one knows the words of the all the Villa songs. Then there can be no excuses to be silent!  First, we start with the staple regular Villa classics.

 

Paul McGrath My Lord

Paul McGrath my lord, Paul McGrath,
Paul McGrath my lord, Paul McGrath,
Paul McGrath my lord, Paul McGrath,
Oh Lord Paul McGrath…

On the p*ss my lord, on the p*ss ,
On the p*ss my lord, on the p*ss ,

Oh Lord on the p*ss ,…

It’s your round my lord, it’s your round,
It’s your round my lord, it’s your round,
It’s your round my lord, it’s your round,
Oh Lord it’s your round…

Holte Enders in the Sky

Yippi Aye Eh, Yippi Aye Oh.
Holte Enders in the sky…

 

Holte Enders in the Sky [Full Version]

As I walked down to Villa Park one dark and dusty day,

I spied a poor old City fan running far away,

I said to that poor City fan, it looks like you must die, ‘Cuz you have seen the glory of … Holte Enders in the sky

Yippeeeiiiaaa, yippeeeiiiooo Holte Enders in the sky

We chased him through the terraces, we chased him down the streets,

But little did that City fan know that death must be his fate,

‘Cuz Villa fans rule Birmingham and city fans know why,

‘Cuz they have seen the glory of…. Holte Enders in the sky

Yippeeeiiiaaa, yippeeeiiiooo Holte Enders in the sky

 

Villa Till I Die

Villa till I die,
I’m Villa till I die,
I know I am I’m sure I am,
I’m Villa till I die.

 

Birmingham, are you Listening?

Birmingham, are you listening,
To the song that we’re singing,
We’re walking along,
Singing our song,
S***ting on the City as we goooooo…

 

We shall not be moved

We shall not,
We shall not be moved,
We shall not,
We shall not be moved,
Coz we’re the pride of Birmingham
We shall not be moved…

 

My Old Man

My old man said be a city fan
and i said b*llocks you’re a c*nt,
you’re a c*nt.

We hate the blues and they f*ckin know it,
we hate the blues and were gonna show it.

With Spinksy and Birchy, Alan McInally,
there the boys who’re gonna do us fine
and if you support the blues then
you’re a blue nose b*stard,
and you aint no friend of mine…

ALL TOGETHER NOW! (repeat)

(For the history of the song My Old Man click here)


When I Was Just a Little Boy

When I was just a little boy,
I asked my Mother, what should I be,
Should I be Villa? Should I be Blues?,
Here’s what she said to me.

Get your father’s gun,
And shoot all the City scum,
And support the pride of Brum,
Aston Villa…

 

Come to See the Villa

Come to see the Villa,
You’ve only come to see the Villa,
Come to see the Villa,
You’ve only come to see the Villa…

 

Sh*t on the City

Sh*t on the City,
Sh*t on the City tonight,
(ooo arr)
Sh*t on the City,
Sh*t on the City tonight,
Sh*t on the City,
Sh*t on the City tonight,
Everybody sh*t on the City,
Cos they’re a load of Sh*te…

 

We’ll support you ever more

Aston Villa!
Aston Villa!We’ll support you ever more!
We’ll support you ever more!

 

Aston Villa FC

And it’s Aston Villa,
Aston Villa FC,
We’re by far the greatest team,
The world has ever seen…

 

Oh When the Villa go Marching in

Oh when the Villa,
(Oh when the Villa),
Go marching in,
(Go marching in),
Oh when the Villa go marching in,
I want to be in that number,
Oh when the Villa go marching in…

 

They’re Coming Up, They’re Going

They’re coming up, they’re going down,
They’re coming up, they’re going down,
They’re coming up, they’re going down,
They’re coming up, they’re going down,

Blues are coming up, but they’re going straight back down,
They’re going straight back down,
They’re going straight back down,

Blues are coming up, but they’re going straight back down,

They’re going straight back down,
They’re going straight back down,

They’re coming up, they’re going down,
They’re coming up, they’re going down,
They’re coming up, they’re going down,
They’re coming up, they’re going down,

Blues are coming up, but they’re going straight back down…

 

When you’re smiling

When you’re smiling,
When you’re smiling,
The Holte End smiles with you.
When you’re laughing,
When you’re laughing,
The sun comes shining through.
So stop your crying,
You’ll bring on the rain.
So start your smiling,
Be happy again!
So when you’re smiling,
When you’re smiling,
The Holte End smiles with you.
Lala lala la
The Holte End smiles with you.
Lala lala la
The Holte … End … smiles … with … yoooooou!

 

You are my Villa

You are my Villa,
My only Villa.
You make me happy,
When skies are grey.
You’ll never notice,
How much I love you.
So please don’t take,
My Villa away…

  1. They say that saint andrews is a wonderful place
    To tell you the truth, it’s a f*ckin disgrace
    They say they’ve got showers but we know the truth
    There’s a hole in the roof where the rain p*sses through
    Singing we hate oh we hate the city
    We hate oh we hate the blues
    We hate oh we hate the city
    And we love it when those b*stards lose

  2. Just shows what I thought were original words….quite a few of the songs here have different lines to what I used to sing. A bit more feedback from the old ‘uns might confirm how the songs were originally sung….

  3. a very old song which went on for ages, and i can’t remember the words…..
    my eyes have seen the glory of the villa win the cup, 7 times we won it no one else can catch us up. we are the boys in claret and blue we are the champions,and the villa keep marching on and on…..glory glory aston villa….

  4. trinity, give us a song, trinity trinity give us a song….
    wait for it…..
     
    slow foot-stomp followed by applause from the holte…

  5. if i had the wings of a sparrow, if i had the arse of a crow, i’d fly over birmingham city, and shit on the bastards below, below! and shit on the bastards below…..shit on, shit on, shit on the bastards below, below!

  6. you’ll never take the holte end! you’ll never take the holte end!…sang on a couple of occasions when the scum tried their luck, back in the days of site hard-hats and donkey jackets…..
    one time i remember it wasn’t sung was when rangers came down for a pre-season “freindly”. remember my older brother taking me in through the trinity rd tunstiles and looking up the stairs of the holte to see a mass of pissed up jocks singing gers songs. not one of villa park’s best days….

  7. This song was sung to get the Holte-End warmed up when it was cold on the terraces, around the 70’s and 80’s (and probably earlier?)
     
    Knees up mother Brown, knees up mother Brown,
    Under the table you must go, e-i e-i-e-i-oh,
    If we catch you wanking, we’ll saw your legs right off,
    So knees up, knees up, gotta get a breeze up, knees up mother Brown

  8. Might have a few more later, but as you can see, I was singing in the Holte-End and away, during the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, a bit more violent in those days, but oh so much more fun singing and STANDING in the Holte!

  9. Jump up turn around, kick him in the bollocks,
    Jump up turn around, kick him in the head,
    Jump up turn around, kick him in the bollocks,
    Jump up turn around, kick him in the head,
    Ohhh lordy, kick him in the bollocks,
    Ohhh lordy, kick him in the head,
    Ohhh lordy kick him in the bollocks,
    Ohhh lordy kick him in the head….     
     
    (then repeat, but sing it faster, etc;)

  10. Come to Birmingham and you will see… Ansells Brewery, M and B,
    We don’t drink whiskey, and we don’t drink rum,
    We are the boot boys, from Brum!

  11. We’ll be coming round the Bullring with the cup,
    We’ll be coming round the bullring with the cup,
    We’ll be coming round the bullring, coming round the bullring, coming round the bullring with the cup
    PISSED UP!

    • @littlevillan was singing this round shepards bush green, at about 4am coming back from wemberley after beating the mancs. was about 30 of us from the sutton coach lol….

  12. Sung to “12 days of Christmas”…..
     
    Fiiiiive Ken McNaughtttttttt,
    Four Allan Evans,
    Three Colin Gibson,
    Two Kenny Swain,
    and a Jimmy Rimmer as our goalieeee!

  13. This is the Holt-Enders in the Sky song as I remembered it…..
     
    As I was walking down the street one dark and stormy day, I came across a City fan, and he got in my way
    I said you are a City fan, and City fans must die,
    and then forevever more we sang Holte-Enders in the Sky,
    Yippie I yay, yippie I yohhh,
    Holte-Enders in the Sky…..
     
    Also, the longer version……
     
    As I was walked up to the steps of the Holte-End, as I walked up to the Holte-End one day,
    I spied a poor blues fan all cut up in ribbons, all cut up in ribbons and shit on they say.
    I said to that poor blues fan, what have they done to you, and why have they treated you in such a way?
    He said all I did was to go up the Holte-End, and say Aston Villa were old men of clay.
    The Holte-End daint like it, they rose up to fight it, they kicked in his bollocks and kicked in his head,
    And now that poor blues fan, is pushing up daisies, he’s pushing up daisies, he’s stone fuckin dead.
    So let that be a lesson to all of yous blues fans, who come up the Holte-End to sing and to sway,
     If you say one word against our Aston Villa, then that will be the last word that you’ll ever say,
    Yippie I yayyyyy, yippie I Yohhhhh, Holte-End-ers in the sky……

  14. We hate oh we hate the city, we hate oh we hate the blues! We hate oh we hate the city & we love it when the bastards lose!!

  15. Can`t belive you haven`t got this one in ………..Villa ..Villa Villa Villa ..Villa Villa V i l l aaaa…………

  19. There’s a circus in the town, in the town, Ron Saunders is a clown is a clown.

    Noel Blake is just a f**king thief and Birmingham are going down, going down!

    After Saunders land Blake left to go to Blues…

  20. Whoa whoa whoa Francis, whoa whoa Francis,

  26. Who’s that tapping on the window?
    Who’s that knocking on the door?
    It’s Ron Atkinson and his mob, selling Deehan for a bon, cos he don’t score anymore!

    Sang to Albion after John Deehan was transferred aa he hardly scored…..

  27. OH i DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE
    OH I DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEA

    AND BIRMINGHAM
    FXXK OFF WEST BROM
    AND BIRMINGHAM
    (REPEAT FOR FIVE MINUTES)

  28. Villa score,
    Villa score,
    Once you get one,
    You’ll get more,
    We’ll sing you assembly,
    When we get to wembley,
    So score,
    Villa score.

  29. As I walked down to Villa Park one dark
    and dusty day,
    I spied a poor old City fan running
    far away,
    I said to that poor City fan, it looks
    like you must die,
    ‘Cuz you have seen the glory of …

    Holte Enders in the sky
    Yippeeeiiiaaa, yippeeeiiiooo
    Holte Enders in the sky

    We chased him through the terraces, we
    chased him down the streets,
    But little did that City fan know that
    death must be his fate,
    ‘Cuz Villa fans rule Birmingham and
    city fans know why,
    ‘Cuz they have seen the glory of….

    Holte Enders in the sky
    Yippeeeiiiaaa, yippeeeiiiooo
    Holte Enders in the sky

    Complete Lyrics for Holte Enders. Great song when sung properly.

  30. holte enders in the sky is actually the chorus of a much longer song which an older fan once sang for us on the train,believe it dates back to the days in division 3
