Steve Bloomers Watching

http://www.derby.org/jeff/derby/play/bloomer.html

Steve Bloomers Watching, absolute legend of a song

Ok, so if it wasn't about Derby I'd probably think, what the hell is this shyte, but it is about Derby so I love it

I always have to listen to it on matchday, so I got it on limewire, but that's f'ucked up, and it's taken me ages to find a site where you can listen to it, so I'm putting this up here, mainly so I can find it again easily to listen to it, and of course so other people can listen to the world greatest ever song

Cheers Jimbo, possibly the greatest football song ever made. I can proudly say that i was at the first Derby match they ever played the song. Got the program from that match and it has all the lyrics to the whole song. I must say when it first came on the speakers, there were murmurs around the ground of "what the hell is this sh#t", but i think we've all grown to love the song.

Yeah most people love it now, there's a few who don't though.

Oh yes, I ALWAYS have to listen to it on matchday, before I go out to the match, or if I'm staying at home to listen to the game on the radio, before kick off.

no way is that better than 'back home' or many other football songs

perhaps it grows on you.

Back Home my arse, we even have the legend that is Robert Lindsay (the dad in my family, and some Jericho bloke) singing it.

Like I said, if it wasn't about Derby I'd think it was s'hit, everytime I play it at home, my mum says, what is this s'hit your listening to
