Protest songs

That Sheff Wed song the other week stuck in my head:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rdNWQ_YTBu0

Carlos had a dream
To build our football team
We had no players so we had to sign them on loan
We play from the back
With Joao in attack
We're Sheffield Wednesday, we're on our way back.

As much as I don't like copying songs, most clubs are at it these days (Wed weren't the first with this tune) so was thinking an adapted version, having a pop at the running of our club could catch on:

Something like:

Roland had a dream
To play with a football team
Shinny seats and f*****g sofas won't work
We need more playeeeers
An experienced manaageeeer,
Roland and Katrien, you're killing our club.......

Or should I not give up the day job?

Just be nice to have a song that is not just a clap along and has a pop at the current situation.

As OooAhh would say though....have we got the personality??

    Redemption Song - Bob Marley

    Old spivs, yes, they rob I,
    Sold I to the Belgian twit,
    Minutes after he took I
    From the bottomless pit.

    But my hand was made strong
    By the hand of Chris Powell the Almighty.
    We now forward in this generation
    Dull and shitely.

    Won't you help to sing
    These songs of freedom?
    'Cause all I ever have,
    Is Roland's wrongs,
    Is Roland's wrongs.

    Emancipate yourself from Belgium slavery,
    None but ourselves can free our mind.
    Have no fear for PowerPoint presentations,
    'Cause the one who delivers them to us is blind.
    How long till they sell youngsters for profits,
    While we stand aside and look?
    Some say it's just a part of it,
    But I'm searching for my prayer book.

    Won't you help to sing
    These songs of freedom?
    'Cause all I ever have,
    Is Roland's wrongs,
    Is Roland's wrongs,

    Brilliant, but it'll never catch on.

    Ha, there wasn't really any intention of replacing the drummer with an acoustic guitarist !

    Roland had a dream,
    He owned 6 football teams.
    We had no players so we got some from the Belgians,
    The first was alright,
    The rest were all shiiiiiiite,
    We all know, but Roland thinks he's right.

    Someone needs to adapt "Cwying" by Roy Orbison or perhaps "We are Crying" by Rod Stewart.

    Or how about "Flyer me to the moon"

    The only real protest song is: We shall overcome.

    Do you hear the people sing?
    Singing a song of angry men?
    It is the music of a people
    Who will not be slaves again!
    When the beating of your heart
    Echoes the beating of the drums
    There is a life about to start
    When tomorrow comes!

    Will you join in our crusade?
    Who will be strong and stand with me?
    Beyond the barricade
    Is there a world you long to see?

    Then join in the fight
    That will give you the right to be free!

    Do you hear the people sing?
    Singing a song of angry men?
    It is the music of a people
    Who will not be slaves again!
    When the beating of your heart
    Echoes the beating of the drums
    There is a life about to start
    When tomorrow comes!

    Will you give all you can give
    So that our banner may advance
    Some will fall and some will live
    Will you stand up and take your chance?
    The blood of the martyrs
    Will water the meadows of Charlton!

    Do you hear the people sing?
    Singing a song of angry men?
    It is the music of a people
    Who will not be slaves again!
    When the beating of your heart
    Echoes the beating of the drums
    There is a life about to start
    When tomorrow comes

    No I meant that literally is a tune.

    Also - you just posted a video from the film. That's almost flag worthy. :-)

    For after everyone gives up:

    There's a grief that can't be spoken
    There's a pain goes on and on
    Empty Chairs at the Valley
    No CAFC's dead and gone

    Hear they talked of revolution
    Here it was they wore their scarves
    Ere they sang about tomorrow
    But tomorrow never came

    From the sofa in the corner
    They could see a world reborn
    And they rose with voices ringing
    And I can hear them now
    The very words that they had sung
    Became their last communion
    On this lonely piece of turf at dawn

    Oh my friends my friends forgive me
    That cafc is dead and gone
    There's a grief that can't be spoken
    There's a pain goes on and on

    Phantom faces at the window
    Of the lounge where lady T played
    Empty Chairs at The Valley
    Now my friends will meet no more

    Oh my friends my friends don't ask me
    who the fuck karel fraeye was
    Empty Chairs at The Valley
    Where my friends will sing no more

    If we're insistent on Les Mis songs then:

    God on high
    Hear my prayer
    In my need
    You have always been there

    Chris is young
    He's afraid
    Let him rest
    Heaven blessed.
    Bring Chris home
    Bring Chris home
    Bring Chris home.

    He's like the son I might have known
    If God had granted me a son.
    The summers die
    One by one
    How soon they fly
    On and on
    And I am old
    And will be gone.

    Bring him peace
    Bring him joy
    He is young
    He is only a boy

    You can take
    You can give
    Let him be
    Let him live
    If I die, let me die
    Let him live
    Bring Chris home
    Bring Chris home
    Bring Chris home.

    Ok I know - move on!

    At the end of the day she's a liar
    That's all you can say for ms meire
    It's a struggle it's a war
    There's no communication that she's giving
    One more day, watching her fail, what is it for
    One day nearer to league one

    Look down, look down
    Towards the bottom three
