    We're the team from Sussex,
    Sussex by the sea
    E-LE-VEN players and a crowd
    Who roar them to victory
    So shout you fans and make'em score,
    GOAL !!
    Clap your hands until they're sore,
    CLAP,CLAP,CLAP
    'Cos we're going up,and we'll win the Cup
    For Albion by-the-shore.

    We're the team from Brighton,
    Hove,byjove,that's us
    We're always fair,we never swear
    But now it's hit or bust !!!
    So shout you fans and make 'em score,
    GOAL !!!
    Clap your hands until they're sore,
    CLAP,CLAP,CLAP
    'Cos we're going up and we'll win the Cup
    For Albion -by-the-shore.

    I stand to be corrected, but I'm pretty sure those are most certainly not Wisdom's original words. For a start, it was never going up TO win the Cup, but going up AND WE'LL win the Cup. Those words make sense (two objectives in one) and they match the tune perfectly. "going up to-oo win the Cup" just sounds lame. And wrong.
    Spot on. It's amazing how many fans still sing 'going up TO win the cup' even though it makes no sense. We really do have some of the most twattishly thick pig-ignorant illiterate fans in the whole of Europe.


    I may have mentioned this before.

    Please,PRETTY PLEASE,

    THIS is Norman Wisdom's version of GOSBTS,as printed in the programme,and now seen on that marvelous film footage.

    Let's all avoid some shoddy misrepresentations of the Great Man's work which keep cropping up across NSC.
    All opinions expressed in this post are my own,and are therefore correct.

    just a thought - could we get this off the ground for the last 3 home games?

    Hi Guys

    Sussex by the Sea

    Was composed by W Ward-Higgs (who lived near Bognor, South Bersted to be precise) in 1910, and the song was adopted as a fast march by the Royal Sussex Regiment and was therefore highly significant during the 1914-1918 war.

    You can look on the net for this, there are many entries, and if you cannot find the original words pm me and I will provide, There are the further words adopted By Albion and SCCC and I seem to remember the appropriate web site for the 'going up and we'll win the cup version' is 'matty boy'

    Best regards

    Alan

    PS I e mailed Radio Sussex suggesting they may be able to mastermind a recording of the song, with Horsham Band who I think is the one we hear every match day, together with one of several male voice choirs, with the Albion reproducing the words in programme and on the two giant screen at the Amex. The effect could have proved monumental !!

    Sadly I recieved no response from the BBC Radio Sussex

    Really?
    I don't care what you say to me. The whole first season at The Amex, I went to all Gus Poyet's pre match press conferences. I asked the great man what I wanted , when I wanted. It's something money can't buy.
