What are the lyrics to the new song about Europe?

Don't care how we get there etc?

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...

Sang it with gusto in the 70s and really didnít know better. Very glad we have dropped that from the repertoire now.

Aye ashamed to say I too sang this, older and wiser now but at the time it felt right to sing it.

Bit confused here, why is that song controversial?

Sorry, but what's the tune? 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 :wink:


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

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.

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.
