Below you’ll find lyrics to many songs related to Manchester City and their current and former teams and players. Quite a few songs have been created during the years and we hope that this page will be enjoyable for the fans and we encourage you to submit songs that you know are being sung at matches that is not currently in this page. Just comment or send us an email containing the lyrics and we’ll post it on this page.

One can clearly see how the songs have changed from a very elegant, hymn like text in the 50ies and 60ies over to a more violent and explicit style in the 70ies. During the 80ies and 90ies the lyrics got shorter and had less variation. Perhaps the introduction of all seaters took away some of the atmosphere and to get everyone singing you had to make the text really easy to follow. “Blue Moon” is the most common song today, and in it’s full version it shows a glimpse of how elegant the singing could be in the 50ies. Also the short period with “Wonderball” (1996) shows some signs of improvement.

In this page you will not find any of the Munich songs. Although they have a place in the history of City lyrics we don’t feel they add something positive to the game. The Munich songs are still being performed by a small group of fans. Still these songs does nothing to put the players in the right mood, and they also show disrespect to the victims of that tragic accident, where one of Citys greatest players ever also lost his life.

Bless 'em allBless ‘em all, Bless ‘em all
Bert Trautmann, Dave Ewing and Paul
Bless Roy Little who blocks out the wing
Bless Jack Dyson the penalty king
And with Leivers and Spurdle so tall
And Johnstone, the Prince of them all
Come on the light blues
It’s always the right blue
So cheer up me lads
Bless ‘em all
1956
Blue MoonBlue Moon, You saw me standing alone
Whitout a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue Moon, You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I could really care for
Then suddenly they’ll appear before me
The only one my arms could ever hold
I heard someone whisper “Please adore me”
And when I looked my moon had turned to gold.
Blue Moon, now I’m no longer alone
I have a dream in my heart
I have a love of my own

An additional verse was added in 1989 🙂

Blue Moon – You started singing our tune
You won’t be singing for long
Because we beat you 5-1
1985
Blue WembleyI’m dreaming of a blue Wembley
Just like the ones I used to know
When the blue flags flying
And the Scousers dying
To see City win the Cup

Boys in BlueCity – Manchester City
We are the lads who are playing to win
City – the Boys in Blue will never give in
Football is the game that we all live for
Saturday is the day we play the game
Everybody have to pull together
And together we will stand
Even if we’re playing down at Maine Road
Or if we play a million miles away
There will always be a loyal fan behind us
To cheer us on our way
City – Manchester City
We are the lads who are playing to win
City – the Boys in Blue will never give in
Blue and white we play together
We will carry on forever more
Maybe in another generation
When other lads have come to take our place
They’ll carry on the glory of the City
Keeping City in the placeCity – Manchester City
We are the lads who are playing to win

City – the Boys in Blue will never give in
City – the Boys in Blue will never give in
City – the Boys in Blue will never give in

City will win the
Football League
From the banks of the River Ir-Wy-Ell to the shores of Sicily
We’ll fight fight fight for City to win the Football League
To Hell With Man United, To Hell With Liverpool
We’ll fight fight fight for City to win the Football League
We will stop on the banks of the Mersey on our way up to the top
The right will take the Stretford End and the left will take the Kop
We will hang Fitzpatrick by his balls and we’ll paint Old Trafford Blue
Then as we march down Wembley Way we will sing this song to you….
From the banks….. [etc]

In 1962 we fell into
Division 2
In 1962 my friends we fell into division 2
The Stretford End cried out aloud
It’s the end for you Sky Blues
Joe Mercer came we played the game
We went to Rotherham
We won 1-0 and we went back up to division one
Since then
We won the League and FA-Cup
and have been to Europe too
And when we win the League this year
We’ll sing this song to you

The best team
in the land
City, City,
the best team in the land
and all the world
(and all the world)
?
The only team to
come from Manchester
My father said to me one day "is it red or blue for you?"
and if it's red you're out the door and I won't see you no more
and then one Saturday afternoon he took me to Moss Side
He said "my son your time has come and this is a lesson in pride"
You see the scum you never run
You stand and fight your ground
and when you've won on derby day
You're sure to hear this sound
Hark now hear
The City sing
United ran away
And we will fight forever more
Because of derby day
?
This is how it
feels to be City
This is how it feels to be City
This is how it feels to be small
You sign Phil Jones
We sign Kun Aguero
Kun Aguero - Kun Aguero - Kun Aguero

Toodalloo Man UThey say that Old Trafford’s a wonderful place
But the players who plays there are a f*cking disgrace
They have half backs and full backs and forwards too
With their hands down their pants they have f*ck all to do
The Stretford End sing the Stretford End shout
They sing silly songs they know f*ck all about
But we all agree where those Bastards should be
Shovelling sh*t on the Isle of Capri
Toodalloo f*ck Man U, toodalloo f*ck Man U
?
United on the RunWe had joy we had fun
We had United on the run
But the joy wouldn’t last ’cause the Bastards ran to fast….
