We would walk 500 hundred Miles

Recommended Posts

To the tune of the Proclaimers song, I would walk 500 hundred miles

 

Here's the YouTube video for a reminder of the tune:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tM0sTNtWDiI

 

 

Okay, this one has been floating around in my head for a while. I think we could get a lot of supporter participation with this tune, there's a clear call and response bit (I reckon).

 

I'm not precious about the lyrics, I just threw some together - some of the lines are good I think, but some need work so if they need to be RBBifiedâ„¢ - happy for them to be changed for the better. 

 

When we wake up, (when we wake up), 
Well you know we're gonna be
We're gonna be the fans who wake up just for you
When we're marching, (when we're marching, ) 
Well you know we're gonna be
We're gonna be the fans who're marching just for you,
If we get drunk, (If we get drunk, ) well you know we're gonna be
We're gonna be the fans who get drunk alongside you, 
And when we're singing, (when we're singing ) yeah you know we're gonna be, we're gonna be the fans who're singing just for you, 
 
And we would walk 500 miles
Weeeee would walk 500 more
Just to be the fans who walked a thousand miles
To watch our Wanderers soar
 
Da da lat da (Da da lat da) (this could be call and response)
Da da lat da (Da da lat da) (call and response)
da-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da
Da da lat da (Da da lat da) (this could be call and response)
Da da lat da (Da da lat da) (call and response)
da-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da
 
 
When you're working, (when you're working,) 
Well you know well be the fans, we'll be the fans who'll cheer for glory just for you 
In the tough times, (in the tough times)
When the moment seems so blue
We'll be the fans who forever follow you
When you come home (when you come), 
We know we're gonna be, we're gonna be at Wanderland just for you
And when we grow old, (when we grow old), well you know we're gonna be we're gonna be the fans who are singing still for you.
 
And we would walk 500 miles
Weeeee would walk 500 more
Just to be the fans who walked a thousand miles
To watch our Wanderers soar
 
Da da lat da (Da da lat da) (this could be call and response)
Da da lat da (Da da lat da) (call and response)
da-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da
Da da lat da (Da da lat da) (this could be call and response)
Da da lat da (Da da lat da) (call and response)
da-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da

Heh, admittedly, it needs some work. If I achieve nothing else from posting this, it'll be the earworm I've planted in your collective heads. Cause I have damn well planted it in mine.

tbh if it were just the 1st verse and chorus on repeat it would definitely be fun to chant..but the tempo of the song is just too weird, it would most likely just sound like mumbo jumbo with everyone trying to keep in time.

 

But in saying that I wouldn't discourage the idea.

I agree with this. If we can't get Lambada right (which is a set of continuing just la-la-las) then the chances of us singing a whole song right are almost non-existent.

Yeah, never thought of people struggling with tune/tempo. A fair point

im not a fan of the "getting drunk along side you" part...although that may explain our horrible season every player is half cut walking out on the pitch. DEFINITELY explains covic's form

I think this has a better chance of working than Lambada because this particular song is more popular and well-known...

seems like something Brisbane might do if they actually got their **** together. as jack said 10/10 for effort but I don't think it's an RBB one.

 

(my opinion might be coloured because I hate that song)

I not against British chants, but I have to agree with banana here. Give it three games and half the A League will be copying it. Would be great for the socceroos though
