    We’re the Force - brilliant
    /wouldnt be hard to work on lyrics - just the chorus - initially
    opening verse is bit slow and everyone would lose thier timing -

    just remember that it is not just sweet caroline, it is also two other sings/chants that they have put their own lyrics too.

    I like it. I also think that it was put together by the boys themselves, and is organic and has meaning to them.

    Maybe it was just who won first, but the first I recall hearing the "Ain't no party..." bit was after a Women's match.
    Didn't notice it last year, but could have been ready to go for first Men's win, dunno.

    Need to get the Albany Shantymen or a couple of local community choirs attending (and dotted around the stadium) to get the crowd into it, “FORCE” is tough to get going and does fade quite quickly these days.

    It wouldn't be that hard

    Caroline was simply a case of piping it over the speakers after a win when people weren't dashing for the train and the crowd did the righty.

    The same would happen with any of the singalong anthems.

    You're the Voice - Lyrics

    We have the chance to turn the pages over
    We can write what we want to write
    We gotta make ends meet, before we get much older
    We're all someone's daughter
    We're all someone's son
    How long can we look at each other
    Down the barrel of a gun?

    You're the voice, try and understand it
    Make a noise and make it clear
    Oh, whoa

    We're not gonna sit in silence
    We're not gonna live with fear
    Oh, whoa

    This time, we know we all can stand together
    With the power to be powerful
    Believing we can make it better
    Ooh, we're all someone's daughter
    We're all someone's son
    How long can we look at each other
    Down the barrel of a gun?

    You're the voice, try and understand it
    Make a noise and make it clear
    Oh, whoa

    We're not gonna sit in silence
    We're not gonna live with fear
    Oh, whoa

    Ooh, we're all someone's daughter
    We're all someone's son
    How long can we look at each other
    Down the barrel of a gun?

    You're the voice, try and understand it
    Make the noise and make it clear
    Oh, whoa

    We're not gonna sit in silence
    We're not gonna live with fear
    Oh, whoa






    Maybe just go with We're the Force you don't understand us
    It's our noise and we'll yell it clear
    Oh, Whoa

    The verses don't need to change and they aren't the bit that people will sing anyway

    Much harder to pull off, but would be awesome to have a crowd "in defeat" song to sing to the team.
    The one that comes to mind for my always is Bill Withers' "Lean on Me".
    Same thing as Gigs above, just play it and over time people will sing it.
    Bit like for at least a decade (or two) Club Bay View closing each night with Frank Sinatra, "New York, New York" with 1000 pissed youths singing and dancing along...

    Great idea, I guess the problem would be that most punters, once the final whistle blws, then to bolt for the door.

    If you could get it to happen though I think it would be awesome, something to encourage the punters to hang around and thank the players for fighting the good fight.

    I always thought this would be good...but I'm probably one of a very few who'd remember the lyrics...


    I’m a Western Forceman baby
    I've got speed
    I've got everything I need

    I'm the Western Forceman, baby
    I can fly
    I'm a supersonic guy

    I don't need pleasure
    I don't feel pain
    If you were to knock me down
    I'd just get up again

    I'm the Western Forceman, baby
    I'm making out
    I'm all about

    Apologies to the almost famous Bonzo Dog Doo-Doo Band.

    It was on the radio all the time - in the 60's
    Actually "The Bonzos" featured in The Beatles "Magical Mystery Tour". Shirley you remember that!
