    Club songs

    I was watching Against The Head and after UCD won their game it showed them singing a strange litttle song. I'm sure there were actual english words in it somewhere I just couldn't make sense of them. Not unlike the excited babbling of a toddler watching Dora the Explorer. It had a touch of the ging-gang-gooleys about it. Somebody please explain.[img]smileys/confused.gif[/img]
    Grandpa Simpson: The last time the meteors came, we thought the sky was on fire. Naturally, we blamed the Irish. We hanged more \'n a few.

    Might it have included something along thefollowing lines?


    Yerra-waddy, Yerra-waddy, yup-yup-yup,
    Horum, Horum, hup-hup-hup;
    With a hey nonnie nonnie
    And a hotcha-cha,
    Yerra-waddy, Yerra-waddy, U.C.D.


    If so - it's pure classical Greek.

        Is that seriously it or are you taking the michael? It does look about right.

          You should be quite familiar with it Chief, as I understand thatthe uncouth, deprived hooliganswho play for Ewe See Dee in the Siggersunn Cup also sing it after pitched battles or "games" as they call them.


          It's a long time since I've sung it - but that's about 80% accurate.


          Maybe youngsterslike Piquet, epaddyor LLCoolJ could correct my errors.

            Having trouble picturing that. Us GAA folk don't usually come through a school system which includes daft singing and fart lighting as leaving cert subjects.

                    Thats the GAA version of the song-from years ago.....not sure of the spelling..but if singing it it go's near enough as follows:


                    yerawaddie yerawaddie yup yup yup
                    Harum Haurum Hup hup hup
                    Ha ha ha Hee hee hee
                    yerawaddie yerawaddie UCD
                    with a Hey nonnie nonnie and a cha cha cha
                    Colaiste na hOllscoile RA RA RA
                    C-O-L-L-I-D-G-E COLLEGE!!!

                      UCC have a similar enough song made up of gibberish words..called the Tarax...must be a college thing
                      \"I am \" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that \"I do \" is the longest sentence?

                        Grammar schmammer. I was in UCD for 4 years and I never heard that song at a sporting event. Thank heaven for small mercies.

                            Pres/Christians also have one. I mean, most rugby clubs do. There is an Isle etc. etc.

                              Coolmine Rugby Club in D15 have that as their club song as well, as the club website says

                              "There is an Isle has been heard from Italy to the Cayman Islands
                              to Hong Kong. It is a song which was introduced to the club by some of
                              the founding members in 1980, who hail from the Munster regions where
                              the song originated (the song may have actually originated in Scotland,
                              according to the Limerick Leader)."

                              Have ye no songs of your own sez he! [img]smileys/lol.gif[/img]
