We nicked the equaliser off Chelsea. How about going the whole hog and incorporating one step beyond, or Chelsea dagger  Grin Grin



And you call yourself a Chelsea fan? Grin Grin Grin

It should be something unique. Sweet Caroline will be half the grounds around the country.
We canít have had many truly unique football songs over the years.

"I was born under the Hotel End."
"Knocked kneed chicken."
"Noel Noel."
Not sure if anyone else did their own versions in the olden days. Daresay Hotel End could easily have been replaced with someone elses end, Stretford End maybe.

Keep it local and amend the words on Bauhaus's  Ziggy Stardust.

I was born under da CHELSEA SHED
I was born under da CHELSEA SHED
Knives are made for stabbing,
Guns are made to shoot,
If you come down da CHELSEA SHED,
We'll all stick in da boot,
I was born under da CHELSEA SHED

or

I was born in the Stretford End,
I was born in the Stretford End,
Boots are made for bootin',
Scarves are made to wave,
If you see a City fan,
You put him in his grave.

or Charlton/Leeds
I was saying goodbye to my horse,
And as I was saying goodbye to my horse,
I was saying goodbye to my horse,
Goodbye Horse...

I'd be surprised if we actually have many/any originals.
It's hard to get something brand new going, especially at our level!

Bow/knock legged chicken/knock kneed hen did the rounds, Everton, Brighton, Leeds etc.
United used Noel for Noel Cantwell, so assuming it was a variation on that. It's been around as long as Christmas  Tongue

Fields of green is probably ours, or at least most associated with us.

Bauhaus would be a good shout. Not Ziggy Stardust though, wasn't that originally by someone else? Can't remember who though.
What about "In the Flat Field" which, I think, actually had some sort of Northampton connotations.
Not many other singers/bands with Northampton/County connections that I'd really want serenading our goal celebrations;
Des O Connor, Freddy Fingers Lee, Coast to Coast Tongue

If we're going with a song by someone local, I can't believe everyone is overlooking the fact that Faye Tozer came from Northampton. I'm sure there are plenty of ditties in the Steps back catalogue we could use although, to be fair, the most obvious and appropriate one was actually a cover of a Bee Gees' song...

They could play that when the other team scores.

It has to be anthemic so everyone who wants to joins in.
Boots was and is the obvious choice to me. The younger contingent could quickly turn it into quite an intimidating song if a bit of passion was employed as a walk on recital.
The Sixfields Boys tune and the line 'going all the way to the top' (from memory, I still have my copy somewhere) would be good if a goal celebration tune was insisted upon.

It became the case that everyone eventually ended up singing 'horse.' It's actually an old navy shanty that refers to men going to sea, and saying goodbye to their whores. Wink

My thinking too* - some of the suggestions on Bauhaus who to me play tuneless mutterings with iron age hard rock beating out is eminently unsuitable. The taylor made for us is ' These Boots etc' and could work if chorused in an intimidating/passion manner.  The tune I remember from the more successful periods of Cobblers fortunes is ' were going up again, up up' and was often belted out unashamedly gleeful!

* No way does this suggest or insinuate the same repetitive identical thinking - far from it Cool

Its sung at most away games by a relatively small group of 'singers' (loose term that) - always thought Uncle Dan and Coolie were involved. Didn't bother me and others at all

Couldn't disagree more, Evers. But if not Bauhaus, then surely it has to be something from Love and Rockets. Ball of Confusion would be most appropriate  Grin but I suspect Evers would prefer one of these. Wink

While fans of other clubs are trying to distance themselves from the ubiquitous choon, including Oxford United, who have some claim to this but have a whole thread on their forum about the cringeworthyness of adopting it,would be chillingly embarrassing to try and steal, sorry adopt something so unoriginal!
