Chants to the team

Old Kop favourites from the 1970s:
With a knock-kneed chicken
and a bow-legged hen
we ain't had a fight since we don't know when

We don't give a wiggle
and we don't give a wank
WE ARE THE GELDERD AGGRO

Nya-nya-nya-etc.
(repeat endlessly whilst jumping up and down on the spot)

WE ARE THE GELDERD AGGRO!!

A variation of this one, was:

'I'm a knock kneed chicken,
I'm a bowlegged hen,
I haven't had a fight since I don't know when.
I walk with a waddle and I talk with a squeak,
Cos we are the Geldard aggro'

Another one from the 1970s, to the tune of "Under a wandering star" by Lee Marvin:
I was born under the Gelderd end
I was born under the Gelderd end
the Gelderd, Gelderd end.

Knives were made for stabbing
guns were made to shoot
If you come in the Gelderd end,
we'll all stick in the boot.

Another lyric to the same:
I was born in the Gelderd End
I was born in the Gelderd End
Boots are made for kicking
Guns are made to shoot
If you come in the Gelderd End we'll all stick in the boot
Oh,(loud) I was born....

What about this one:
Bertie Mee one day said to Don Revie,
have you heard of the North Bank 'ighbury,
Don said no,
I don't think so,
but I've heard of the Gelderd - boot boys,
Na na na na na na na...........

Or this one:
Nanananananana
Nanananananana
Nanananananana
We are the Gelderd Boot boys!

One thing is for sure, with good reasons, the supporters at the Kop was proud of both the team and themselves!
Don Revie was mentioned in several of the chants:

Going down to Elland Roooooooooooooooooooad
to see Don Revie's aces

The Blaydon races tune it went something like this:
Oh the lads you should ha seen their faces
Going down to Elland Road to see Don Revies aces
All the lads and lasses they had smiles upon their faces
Going down to Elland Road to see Don Revies Aces

Another reference to "the Scrathing Shed", sung to the Beatles' "Yellow Submarine":
We all live in a white scratching shed
a white scratching shed
a white scratching shed

Also this chant:
A-G
A-G-R
A-G-R-O
AGGRO!

WATC-COE (the very famous chant at away games - shirts off, and...)
We are the champions - Champions of Europe ......

EIEIE
E-I-E-I-E-I-O
Up the football league we go
When we win the championship
This is what we'll sing
We are the champions
We are the champions
Sgt Wilko's team
OY!

Half time:
At half time, you can buy a small hot dish at Elland Road, the English are as you are aware very fond of pies, 
peas and Yorkshire pudding, of course. (The latter you should indeed try next time around!). I guess this highlight of
the game gave inspiration the this song, to the tune of "Some Girls Do" by Racey, from the mid 1970's:
Oh I love Clarkie
and Johnny Giles
and to go and see them
I'd walk for miles
I don't like Man U
even though they're quite good
now it's half time
I'll have peas & pud

Monthy Pyton's
Always look on the bright side of life ....

Unknown:
We've been to Man United
We've been to Europe too
We're ere today
We're ere to stay
We're ere to fight for Leeds

I've also recognized the same with the last line like this:
We're ere to fight with you

It's Leeds United:
For it's Leeds United,
Leeds United FC
We're the greatest team in football
The world has ever seen
(Repeated some times...)

Y-R-A:
Y-R-A, we're Yorkshire's Republican Army (we're barmy)
Wherever we go we fear no foe,
For we are the YRA....
(repeat indefinitely)

Sorry for the wording - this is how it was sung
F*ck 'em all,
F*ck 'em all,
The long and the short and the tall,
For we are United and we are the best,
We are United so f*ck all the rest
(repeat)

Glory, glory Leeds United:
(To the tune of "John Brown's Body" - Remember the "on and on" repeated endlessly ending)
Glory, glory Leeds United,
Glory, glory Leeds United,
Glory, glory Leeds United,
When the Whites go marching -
on and on,
on and on,
on and on,
...etc.

Marching on together:
Marching on together
We're gonna see you win (na, na, na, na, na, na)
We are so proud
We shout it out loud
We love you Leeds - Leeds - Leeds

Super Leeds:
Super, super Leeds,
Super, super Leeds,
Super, super Leeds,
Super Leeds United

We are Leeds:
We are Leeds, We are Leeds
We are Leeds
We are Leeds, We are Leeds
We are Lee-eeds
We are Leeds, We are Leeds
We are Leeds
We are Lee-eeds
WE ARE LEEDS
(Repeat a large number of times)

I have also noticed, to the same tune:
Eng-er-land, Eng-er-land, Eng-er-land...

We are the pride:
We are the pride of all Europe
The best in the North
We hate the Man U
And Chelsea of course

We're Leeds, and we're proud of it:
(To the tune of The Pet Shop Boys' "Go West")
We're Leeds, and we're proud of iT, We're Leeds, and we're proud of it,
We're Leeds, and we're proud of it, We're Leeds, and we're proud of it
(A lot of repeats)

Wemberlee:
Wemberlee,
Wemberlee,
We're the famous Leeds United,
And we're off to Wemberlee
(repeated endlessly...)

We're on the march:
We're on the march with Wilko's army
We're all off to Wembley
And we don't give a ----
'Cause we're gonna win the cup
'Cause United are the greatest football team

We're proud of you:
To the tune of "Auld Lang Syne":
"We're Proud of You..."

When the Whites go Marching in:
(To the tune of "When the Saints go marching in")
Oh when the whites, (shouted by single person)
Oh when the whites, (shouted by rest)
Go marching in, (shouted by single person)
Go marching in, (shouted by rest)
Oh when the whites go marching in, (sung from now on)
I wanna be in that number,
When the whites go marching in.
(repeat)

White flag:
(Tune unknown)
For ever and ever
we'll follow our team
We're Leeds United
we rule supreme
We'll never be mastered
by who,
by no  bastards
We'll keep the White Flag
flying high

You are my sunshine:
You are my sunshine,
My only sunshine,
You make me happy,
When skies are grey,
You'll never know dear,
How much I love you,
Please don't take my sunshine away

Naaa Na Na Naa Na - LEEDS!
 Na Na Na Naa Na - LEEDS!
Na Na Na Naa Na - LEEDS!
Na Na Na Naa - LEEDS, LEEDS!
Na Na Na Naa Na - LEEDS!
Na Na Na Naa Na - LEEDS!
Na Na Naaa Na Na Naa Na Naa - LEEDS, LEEDS!

(and then repeat with lyrics again.)

When our lads are sent off, and we're still performing:
10 men, we only got 10 men... (after first sending off)
9 men, we only got 9 men (after second sending off)
(I once tried to start "we only need 9 men", but didn't manage to get it going)

Other chants:
Yorkshire, Yorkshire...
Leeds, Leeds, Leeds... (together with the famous "arm-swing" - the Yorkshire salute)

Just clapping:
(Just to save the voice occasionally)
"Hand-clap-thingy" - approximately like this:
(three beats per par)
Clap,    ,     |Clap,    , Clap|Clap,Clap,Clap|Clap,     ,     | ....

(over and over again, increasing the tempo)
