Mac the knife

Some Rams fans think we need a new song that is distinctive to Derby County. These are the lyrics to Mack the knife:

Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight
Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red

Now on the sidewalk, huh, huh, whoo sunny morning, un huh
Lies a body just oozin' life, eek
And someone's sneakin' 'round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

There's a tugboat, huh, huh, down by the river don'tcha know
Where a cement bag's just a'drooppin' on down
Oh, that cement is for, just for the weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten old Macky's back in town
Now d'ja hear 'bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, babe
After drawin' out all his hard-earned cash
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?

Now Jenny Diver, ho, ho, yeah, Sukey Tawdry
Ooh, Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Oh, that line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky's back in town

I said Jenny Diver, whoa, Sukey Tawdry
Look out to Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Yes, that line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky's back in town
Look out, old Macky's back

 

Surely these can be tweaked to come up with something? The emboldened bits give a sound basis and the tune is very easy to keep going. I'm thinking a song that goes through the whole eleven players and ends up "Mac is back"

Eg:

Scotty Carson...never get past him...Bairdiniho...what a pass...Richard Keogh...never hoofs it...Alex Pe-arce...like a rock...

Bradley Johnson...breaks your balls son, And then Bryson...he's on Jeager, and Will Hughes...just bam-booze-els...Thomas Ince...tears you apart..."

its a work in progress..but there's great potential here. Can a body. Embed a YouTube version to remind people of the tune?

To the tune of Volare by Dean Martin.

 

 

Oh Steve Mac

Oooohhhhh ooohhhh ohhhwo

Oh Steve Mac

Ohhhh Wohhhh  ohhhh wohhhh

He left but then he came back

And now, we know how to attack  

 

Oh Steve Mac

Ohhh ohh oh wo

Oh Steve Mac

Ohhh ohh oh wo

He chose to leave for a while

But now we're playing in style

Was once lucky enough to see Louis Armstrong and his all stars, live, on his tour of the UK, mid 1950's. He performed that number, and I remember thinking what a bizarre number to perform for trad jazz enthusiasts.

Brilliant performance, mind.

I refer you to my earlier post in the "Return of the Mac" thread:

Mac is back in town:

How about:-

Stevie Mac.. Can he fix it?

Stevie Mac.. Yes he can!

Time to get winning, such a lot to do
Clean sheets and winning it's all we do
Stevie Mac and the squad score for fun
Working together, they get the job done

To the tune of bob the builder.

That sounds like the start of a really creepy kids show, the sort where there wouldn't be a winner or loser in each episode/game, and they'd have a sing song after

How's about Ince is our number 10 to this? 

I'm sure Uttox or some other wordsmith could come up with something.

Ince is our number 10

He'll beat you on the wing

Ince is our number 10

And the derby fans will sing

Ince is our number 10

Scoring goals for fun

Ince is our number 10

And he's Paul inces son

Way too intellectual Ella.. Half the South Stand will need a pee by half way. Too many words as well.

Stevie Macs Barmy Army sadly is our limit.

Folk can take the ... here .. 

 

But this club is crying out for NEW songs .. 

 

The current lot being wracked out every game is getting sooooo boring ! 

 

Some songs have run their course .. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz 

 

It's not too difficult making a few chants out of what the OP suggested .. 

 

 

Let's get it going.
