Songs with football lyrics.


Recommended Posts

proper songs not terrace chants.


it seems like two of the main threads in popular culture dont coincide too often.


beyond serious drinkings "love on the terraces", "bobby moore was innocent" and "go for the burn". rod stewarts "you're in my heart"....then i'm struggling.

Aye, it's called Weekend Warrior, I believe. Macc Lads must have plenty.


The Macc Lads didn't really do anything in the way of writing songs about beating people up, just the drinking and shagging (or non-shagging) side of things and pies and Vauxhall Vivas.

billy bragg had a song about a vauxhall velox.......anyhoo........B A robertsons "knocked it off" and there was a cover of "pearls a singer" called "earls a winger"

Soulfly have that song about football. Can't remember it's name.


Called Umbabarauma, apparently.


Um, dois, tres, quatro...


Umbabarauma homen gol

Umbabarauma homen gol


Joga bola joga bola jogador

Joga bola quero jogar bola jogador

Pula, pula, cai, levanta, sobe e desce

Corre, chuta, abre espaco, vibra e agradece

Olha que a cidade toda ficou vazia

Nessa tarde bonita pra te ver jogar


Joga bola jogador

Joga bola corocondo

Favela Pelada Favela Pelada

Futebol Futebol Futebol Futebol...


Eis ai a historia de Umbabarauma

Um ponta de lanca Africano

Um ponta de lanca decidido

Not a song like. But the cover of Walls and Bridges is a drawing Lennon done as a bairn showing us in the Cup Final against Arsenal.

There's a band i like (Joe Carnall & The Book Club) and they have a song called Justice For 96. He's a Wednesday fan and it's about the Hillsborough thing.


This isn't the official video a fan one.
