    A post where we can put all the songs so when people forget the words, they can come here and see all the songs.

    I want players, traditonal, general, opposition, manager, and even ideas for songs and I'll put them in this post!

    Don't know about you but I always forget the words to longer songs like Shipley, and Eyeyeyeyo!

    Bakayoko
    20 Goals, 20 Goals, Bakayoko,
    20 Goals, 20 Goals, I say,
    20 Goals, 20 Goals, Bakayoko,
    Being offside-all-fucking-day
    /Playing football the offside way
    /Bakayoko Play up Sky blues

    Hiwula
    Jordy Hiwula
    Jordy Hiwula
    Oh it's Jordy Hiwula
    He plays for City
    Sky blue army!

    Shipley
    He dreamed to play for City,
    When he was just a boy.
    He signed when he was seven,
    And his heart it filled with joy.
    Now he's in the first team,
    His dreams are coming true.
    His name is Jordan Shipley,
    And he's City through and through!
    Allez allez allez!
    Allez allez allez!
    His name is Jordan Shipley,
    And he's City through and through!

    Sam McCallum
    NANnananananannananananananananannansnanan

    The Sky Blue Song

    Let's all sing together
    Play up Sky blues
    While we sing together
    We will never lose
    Tottenham or Chelsea
    United or anyone
    They shan't defeat us
    We'll fight till the game is won
    City, City, City!

    In our Coventry Homes

    In our Coventry Homes
    In our Coventry Homes
    We speak with an accent exceeding rare
    You want a cathedral? We've got one to spare
    In our Coventry homes

    Robins is our king

    EYiEYiEYiO
    Up the football league we go
    When we get promotion
    This is what we'll sing
    We are city
    We are city
    Robins is our king

    Robins Wonderland

    There's only one Mark Robins
    One Mark Robins
    Walking along, singing a song
    Walking in a Robins wonderland

    Everywhere we go

    Everywhere we go
    Everywhere we go
    It's the City boys
    Making all the Noise
    Everywhere we go

    Twist 'n' Shout (Sky blues edition)

    On our way

    On our way, we're on the way
    To the championship, we're on the way
    How do we get there I don't know
    How do we get there I don't care
    All I know is City's on the way

    Leicester
    Your mums your dad
    Your dads your mum
    Your interbred and your Leicester scum

    Villa
    Shit on the villa
    Shit on the villa tonight
    Shit on the villa
    Shit on the villa tonight
    Shit on the villa cause their a load of shite

    Sunderland
    Sunderland get battered,
    Everywhere they go
    Sunderland get battered
    Everywhere they go
    Everywhere they go...

    My City
    You are my City
    My only City
    You make me happy when skies are grey.
    You never notice how much I love you
    Won’t you take my city away.

    I have never heard this sung at a Coventry match in my life. Is it an age thing? (I’m 28)

    Can't recall hearing it at a football match but do recall hearing/joining in during many a NAAFI bar drinking session when in the forces.
    There were extra verses - courtesy of the more imaginative.
    IRISH: (No offence intended, I served with quite a few Irish lads from both sides of the border and even now I don't think the Irish take exception to an 'Irish joke')
    IRISH: 'Hello moo moo, hello moo moo, he was saying goodbye to his horse'.....
    GEORDIE: (Served with a few Geordies, too and they do speak like this)
    GEORDIE: 'Howay clippa cloppa, howay clippa cloppa, he was saying goodbye to his horse'....
    FRENCH: (Never served with a Frenchman but it's no secret about some of their dietary preferences)
    FRENCH: 'Au revoir petit dejeuner, au revoir petit dejeuner, he was saying goodbye to his horse'....
    There were other lines/idiosyncracies - some playful, others which could be considered insulting, but I can't remember them. (NAAFI bar beer was not watered down)

    Lots of generic, everyone sings those songs knocking about.

    Would be good if we had loads of original stuff.

    I remember (most of it anyway!) one from the '70's that went something like:
    'City score, City score, if you get one you'll get more, we'll ............... ........ ........ when we get to Wembley so score, City score',
    * The gaps are the bits I never heard clearly/can't remember.
