West Ham Songs

I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles

West Ham’s famous anthem. Always sung loud and proud before, during and after West Ham’s matches. These are the original lyrics for the song, but many people replace the fourth line with “They reach the sky”. At away games, a version of the song is also occasionally sung to the tune of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

I’m forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air,
They fly so high,
Nearly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams,
They fade and die,
Fortunes always hiding,
I’ve looked everywhere,
I’m forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.

Over Land and Sea

We all follow the West Ham,
Over land and sea,
We all follow the West Ham,
On to victory,
(altogether now)
We all follow the West Ham,
Over land and sea,
We all follow the West Ham,
On to victory.

Twist and Shout

Usually only sung at away games.

Shake it up baby now (shake it up baby)
Twist and shout (twist and shout),
C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c‘mon baby now (come on baby),
Come on and work it on out (work it on out),
You know you twist so good (look so good),
You know you twist so fine (twist so fine),
C’mon twist a little closer now (twist a little closer)
And let me know that you’re mine (know you’re mine),

Aaron Cresswell

Aaron Cresswell’s magic,
He wears a magic hat,
He used to play for Ipswich,
He didn’t fancy that,
He wants to play with Tomkins and ginger Pele too,
His name is Aaron Cresswell,
He wears the Claret and Blue.

Manu Lanzini

For our Argentine playmaker

Ain’t nobody,
Like Lanzini,
Makes us happy,
Plays the West Ham Way!

Winston Reid

In honour of his match-winning strike against Millwall. After his goal at Spurs in a famous victory at White Hart Lane, I suspect this may be adapted, with “Racist” replacing “Pikey”

Winston Reid,
Winston, Winston Reid,
He put the ball in the Pikeys’ net,
Winston, Winston Reid.

Mark Noble

For our locally born and bred midfielder, product of our youth system.

Mark Noble (whoa oh),
Mark Noble (whoa oh),
He plays for the claret and blue,
He’s West Ham through and through.

My Name is Ludo

Still sung at most games, despite the eponymous and popular goalie having departed the club a few seasons back.

My name is Ludo Miklosko,
I come from near Moscow,
I play in goal for West Ham (WEST HAM),
When I walk down the street,
Everyone that I meet,
Says “OI! BIG BOY! What’s your name?”
(repeat from first line)

Chim Chiminee

This one dates back to the days of football hooliganism and the days of the infamous Inter-City Firm (ICF), and still gets an occasional airing at games.

Chim chiminee, chim chiminee,
Chim chim cheroo,
We are the bastards in claret and blue.

I’m Dreaming of a Frank Lampard

In memory of Frank Lampard Senior’s winning goal in the 1980 FA Cup Semi-Final replay at Elland Road. Unfortunately not sung very often these days, due to the unpopularity of his son, who shares the same name.

I’m dreaming of a Frank Lampard,
Just like the one at Elland Road,
When the ball came over,
And Frank fell over,
And scored the f*cking winning goal (WINNING GOAL!).

And now a few songs from the past for former players…

Oh Christian Dailly,
You are the love of my life,
Oh Christian Dailly,
I’ll let you shag my wife,
Oh Christian Dailly,
I want curly hair too…

Six foot two, eyes of blue,
Billy Bonds is after you.

Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop Robson,
Score a little goal for me,
We’ve not seen you since half past three,
And now it’s nearly tea,
So Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop Robson,
Score a little goal for me.

Alvin Martin, Alvin Martin,
Alvin, Alvin Martin,
He’s got no hair,
But we don’t care,
Alvin, Alvin Martin.

Carlton Cole (COLE),
Always believe in your soul,
You’ve got the power to know,
You’re indestructible,

Always believe in…
