Strange chants: part eight

Since ’tis the festive season (despite still being November – let’s face it, if you go by the average shop in town then Christmas starts in August anyway),  I thought it would be amusing to recall a festive chant, that I must admit I’ve not heard in a while – it amuses me as both an atheist and in the irreverent randomness of it – I mean, who thought to combine a Christmas Carol with a football chant?

“Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Looked up and he said….

WE HATE DERBY!
AND WE HATE DERBY!
WE HATE DERBY!
AND WE HATE DERBY!

etc…”

A work of sublime random genius, in my humble opinion, and given the time of year hopefully we will hear it dusted off at the City Ground or on our travels some time soon – of course, the other notable member of our canon of seasonal chanting is only appropriate for away trips, and relates to ‘Jingle bells’, and how much fun it is to see Forest win away – which is good fun too!
