Latest Spurs videos from Sky Sports

Maybe it's all to do with where microphones are sited, but AFAIK there appear to be only two songs/chants from our fans. COYS and When the Spurs go Marching in. (Used to be, when the Whites go marching in but well . . .).
Whatever happened to epics such as

We hate Bill Shankley and we hate the Kop
We'll fight Man United until we drop
We walk with a wiggle (?) and we don't give a wank
We are the Park Lane polite and kind supporters (as if)

Or: Who's that copper with the helmet on?
Dixon Dixon
Who's that copper with the helmet on?
Dixon of Dock Green
On the beat all day
on the wife all night
who's etc.

Can we forget the immortal lyricism of this:
Ay-yi-yi-yi Jennings is better than Yashin
Chivers is better than Eusebio
and Woolwich are in for a thrashing

The complex imagery of
We all hate beans and beans and beans
beans and beans and beans
and beans and beans and beans and beans
we all fucking hate beans

Is it not longer the done thing to sing to the Gooners' crappy anthem tune

Fuck off Woolwich
We hate to say that name
You're the biggest load of bastards
In the game

Just wonderin'. What are you singing these days?

Looking down at Woolich again
Yesterday afternoon I noticed that when the Southampton fannys started singing abusively towards Dele, our contingent took up the Dele song with gusto, but it seemed to get a bit mumbled and embarrassed at the 'better than Ozil' bit.

I quite liked the 'you play Thursday....'

We had to dumb it down for the tourists in the new stadium.
 
Hardly surprising that songs no one knows don’t get sung

:mourthumb:
Yeah, well. The point is that we had a lot of songs (that fit the time). Not much gained by singing "Bertie Mee has got VD, doodah, doodah" these days is it? What do you have now? I'd like to know lyrics and the name of the tunes (since there are no original tunes in football songs) if possible.

It seems to me watching on TV thousands of yonks away that other teams' supporters have a much larger repertoire of songs and abuse than the two-song limit that seems (on TV remember) to apply to the Space Station formerly known as White Hart Lane.

Is there no longer any concerted effort to abuse referees, opposing players ("Osgood is a fairy" used to be good for two games per season), police, or has woke culture finally emasculated the fans?

Grouch groan moan

I agree, haven’t been to WHL since Everton in the “finale season”, and have only been about 25 times since 2001 since I moved away from England.

But even under Jol and Arry I think the amount of songs was much better.

I actually can’t stand Oh When anymore, because it’s never finished

For me nothing beats a full stadium singing Come On You Spurs mid game when the chips are down.

You don’t even hear Tottenham From The Lane much now, from the tv anyway, don’t know if that’s the case in the ground
 
We hate Nottingham Forest . . . . .(yes really they figured in the chant)
We hate Woolwich too
We hate West Ham United
But Tottenham we love you

and

Does the copper want a wee-wee
does the copper want a wee-wee
does the copper want a wee-wee
'cos we want a wee-wee too!

(In his helmet)
Tot'nam clap clap clap Tot'nam clap clap clap ad nauseum

And of course, Forever Blowing Bubbles with the adaptation:
. . .
Then like WEST HAM they fade and die
Woolwich always running
Chelsea running too
So's the Park Lane Tot'nam
Running after YOU
Tot'nam clap clap clap Tot'nam clap clap clap ad nauseum

It's enough to make your heart go
weeeeeee don't know what the other teams say
what the hell do we care?
We only know that you're gonna get a show
When Tottenham Hotspur's there!

I hear the sound (clap clap clap)
of distant bums
Over there (all point)
Over there (more pointing)
and do they smell?
Like fuckin' hell
Over there, over there
