Celtic – football song

original Glasgow Celtic embroidered blazer badge of Alec McNair

I couldn’t find the Celtic football song on the internet which my dad taught me. So I thought I should put it here. He taught me this in about 1963. He was born in Australia in the 1920s. His mum and dad were Scottish and migrated to Australia. I don’t know who taught him the song. GCFC means Glasgow Celtic Football Club. This is the original Glasgow Celtic embroidered blazer badge which was owned by Alec McNair who my dad had possibly heard of. Here’s the song:

——–

Here we go in a row

Up and down the middle-o

Hi ho hi, hen upon the griddle-o

One shot, keep it up

Tackle one and all

For there’s not a team to beat them

When the Celtic’s on the ball.

Will you look at the style of them
the courage and the skill
Thousands of miles away
you hear the people thrill
Here we go in a row …

REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT

By the way, I think the game needs to change. Heading the ball should be outlawed. The long term CTE effects are devastating.
