    We're on our way
    We're on our way
    Off to Europe
    We're on our way
    How do we get there I dont know
    How do we get there I dont care
    All I know is Hibs are on their way

    I've been singing this to myself over the last few days...

    Now it's off to Europe in the green, in the green
    And we're gonna watch the Hibees play
    Cos the fans have seen that the team has been
    Playing the Hibernian way...

    Bit confused here, why is that song controversial?

    The tune as far as the song the OP is on about is "Paint your wagon" I think, same tune the English fans were singing at the WC.

    That "sudden thought came to my mind" as well


    Must say though,the current Hibernian Choir are doing a grand job.

    Back then it was the Cave-ites,or the foot stampers in the Old North Stand (Hibees ! Hibees !) that started the singing.

    Normally run of the mill fans start the Hibees ! to spur the team on at an important part of the game but I think you might have hit on something here if the singing section could incorporate it into their repertoire when they want the whole stadium to join in.....!

    Never to be forgotten. Think the last time I heard it was on Hibs 3 game Irish tour before season 2005/6. We were inside/outside Fitzgerald's pub at Aston Quay, Dublin. The lyrics leant themselves very well to our visit.

    Not as confused as I am, at 62y.o. and an ex caveite, I remember those old rebel songs very well but I thought this thread was about the new "European" song !

    Good stuff that the Choir are creating new songs and chants.
    My favourite in recent seasons and the loudest has to be the SJM song.





    Just in front of the Warburton one !!


    And other ones like that !!

    Sevco sing a sectarian song to that tune.
    I hope we dont adopt a song with the same tune.

    Edit: Oops!
    Wrong tune
    Am thinking of Wanderin Star from that movie

    Love singing this to the knuckle draggers at my work, a favourite that winds them up even though the bread man, with respect is long gone.
