Rab C Nesbitt
Tbf I've heard loads singing that, and with the other words in the chant it makes more sense.
I’ve also heard Blue boys, from Brum sang

what I loved about that song (boot boy version) was it had a bit of the KRO about it, Vile nor Baggies sang it just us.Pride of Birmingham!

Didn't make sense though.
Should really be

"Come to Birmingham and you will see,
We wear Docs 'n' look trendy,
We don't wear loafers or slip on shoes,
We are the boot boys, we're Blues.

I like the way you've asterisked the 'i' and the 'n', so as not to cause possible offence. 😂

I love the way you are either re engineering the past Rab OR you must have been singing that version on yr own!

It was indeed, Albert - not exactly Simon and Garfunkel, to be fair. 😀

It's sung quite often, including Tuesday.

I started one back in the mid-70s, to a Mungo Jerry song from the time:

‘You’re a bald headed barsteward dressed in black, dressed in black, dressed in black, dressed in black, black, black.’
Aimed at the ref, obviously, so long as he had a shiney head (even more obviously) Stuck around for a year or two IIRC.

I also started the long running ‘Cockney scum, get out of Brum’ - should have copyrighted that one; don’t know if it gets chanted any more though.

I couldn’t have been more than 12 or 13 at the time, Rab- doubt my voice had even broken, but the boot boys were open to more influences in those days😁

In fairness nowadays a lot would just tut at you standing up and enjoying yourself

Ha, yes, I do remember that one. To the tune of Long Legged Woman Dressed in Black. It was particularly effective if Roger Kirkpatrick (a.k.a Mr Pickwick) was reffing - actually, he was a great referee.

Certainly was ,my mistake but in my defence I did post late last night after some light refreshments!! The asterisks were of course to keep up standards.
As I was the first to bring up the Ansells brewery ditty last night I think the only true version is with the words "Boot Boys " End of.
