Nothinghamshire

Celebrating this seasons head-to-heads with Forest with a song based on the McCartney/Laine classic “Mull of Kintyre”.  Lyrics are by MapRead with a couple of embellishments from yours truly. It has evolved into almost a suite, with a vocal “who let the red dogs out” gently leading into the song proper, and, as what appear to be the final chords ring out, a Scottish military tattoo beats out the refrain from “The Derby Ram”, before launching Hawaii 5-0 like into a punky breakneck speed finale, that ends with a shoot-out, sirens and policeman reporting back to base.  I know, it’s understated.

NB: Track no longer available online – will be put back up come the return match with Forest!


♪♪ Who let the red dogs out?♪♪

♪♪Nothinghamshire
Oh Rams felling trees in the east
My desire is always to win here
In Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪Twelve miles we’ve travelled
And mulch have we seen
Hulse, Nyatanga,Commons
Davies, Green
Black and white chainsaws
The woodland on fire
As Nige carried us home from
Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪Nothinghamshire
Oh Rams felling trees in the east
My desire is always to win here
In Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪Sheep to Snottingham
On trains, foot and tyre
It’s February
Two thousand and nine
Two nights we sang like
A heavenly choir
Of the time of our lives
Here in Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪Nothinghamshire
Oh Rams felling trees in the east
My desire is always to win here
In Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪Smiles in the Bridgford
The Trent End in pain
Groans in the Brian Clough
Tears in the Main
Flickering embers glowed
Higher and higher
As Nige carried us home from
From Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪Nothinghamshire
Oh Rams felling trees in the east
My desire is ‘Stihl’ to cut logs here
Oh Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪Nothinghamshire
Oh Rams felling trees in the east
My desire is always to win here
In Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪La, la, la, liars
Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪La, la, la, liars
Shottinghamshire♪♪

♪♪La, la, la, liars
Not-in-game-pyre♪♪

♪♪La, la, la, liars
Shottinghamshire♪♪

♪♪La, la, la, liars
Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪La, la, la, liars
Nothinghamshire♪♪

♪♪La, la, la, liars
Nothinghamshire♪♪

(…this is romeo delta oscar to base,
the disturbance is contained,
we are the Derby, over…)
