Want to join in the singing, but don't know the words or tune? Well now you'll have no excuse as AFTN brings you what will be our regularly updated songbook (written with a firmly placed tongue in cheek!). We may have lost a lot of our repertoire with the mass exoduses of recent seasons, but there's still a pile of old classics and young pretenders alike listed here for you, minus the obvious one "East Fife, Cha Cha Cha".

Just click on the individual song titles for the words or scroll through the whole thing. Do what you fancy, but please do sing!

FIELDS OF WELLESLEY ROAD

(To the tune of "Fields of Athenry")


On a pitch on Wellesley Road
We watched the Black 'n Gold
Robert Scott scored goals for fun
Willie Broon was number one
Now there's houses on the pitch on Wellesley Road

(Chorus)
Remember, our glory days of yore
Remember those who've worn the Black & Gold
(The Black and Gold)
We won the cup in '38, we've gone down in history
We are East Fife, Methil East Fife, Black & Gold

On a pitch down by the sea
We've got Kenny D
He scored a barrel load
In the famous Black 'n Gold
He scored the goal to take us from Division Three

(repeat chorus)

In the year 2003
It was our centenary
We reached Division Two
Cowden Scum where are you?
You're down beside the shite where you belong

(repeat chorus)



TOP

FIFER TOMMY

(To the tune of Liverpool's "Scouser Tommy")

Were you there when we won 3-2 at Gretna?
When we scored with the last kick of the ball
Were you one of the few who stayed faithful
If you are, then stand up and sing along

Oh, I, am a Methil East Fife fan
I'm purely black and gold
And I go fucking mental
Every time we score a goal
We'll win the League
We'll win the Cup
The double will be there
And then we'll go to Europe
And give Barca a scare

And I can drive a tractor

From Stranraer to Elgin, I've cheered the boys on
I hate the Rovers & I hate the Cowdung

(Chorus)

Cos it's Methil East Fife
Methil East Fife F.C.
We're by far the greatest team
The Kingdom's ever seen

When Saturday comes, I'll be back at Bayview
To the Black & Gold, I will always be true

(Repeat Chorus)

TIME FLIES BY

(to the tune of Half Man, Half Biscuit’s “Time Flies By”)

Time flies by when you’re the driver of a train
Speeding out of Methil with a cargo of cocaine
I get high when I’m the pilot of a plane
Touching down in (insert team playing)
I am stoned out of my brain

Under bridges
Over bridges
To our destinay-shun
Careful with that spliff Eugene
It causes condensay-shun
