Nil By Mouth Statement

We could write a new song about the four founders to the tune of Beethoven's fifth and people would still find ways to add some sectarian pash onto it. It will happen every single time. In that respect it's probably better to "reclaim" the tune to some wholesome lyrics than just say nope, they belongs to the moonhowlers now. If a tune itself can become offensive we'll soon run out of tunes entirely. Different story for something like the Billy boys where the tune is written specifically for a sectarian song obviously.

Most if not all football songs are based on previously existing melodies
Fans can do the rhyming thing but the melodies are more difficult
Fookin pathetic by Stewart and Rangers need to call him a bigoted fook wit
Won’t change his attitude but he’s telt

No it isn’t Billy boys is the tune Marching Through Georgia
Here it has “sectarian” connotations in America it’s just a tune

And sloop John b is one of the most common songs used.

People who genuinely have issues with 4 lads, I suggest the problem is in their own bias and or bigotry

Here

If bears sing this song for their 4 lads or whatever; good luck to them. The tune becomes irrelevant.

Somehow I think we all know the rseholes will latch on and use it for the usual piiish that plagues both our clubs.

It just “allows” it to happen is all. That’s the link for those that can’t or refuse to see it.

I don’t get offended by Rangers fans singing derogatory songs one little bit. In fact I’ll probably be more offended when our own fans indulge in it. It’s cringey and embarrassing as fwck.

Hey ho. Thank Christ the league games are back on.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is my take on it also.

If be pretty embarrassed of Celtic started playing the Celtic Symphony but with different lyrics, as it would be an excuse for, and give credence to the muppets to sing the "up the Ra" bit, and for them to turn excuse it by claiming it was Samaras they were singing.

Rangers know what they're doing by using that song, especially after the UB marches earlier this year through Glasgow where they were filmed singing the famine lyrics, and were rightly castigated for it.

The club say one thing (we'll tackle/address this issue) and then pander to the same group of fans by using the tune over an official video. It's so blatantly obvious what they're doing and any Rangers fan denying it is just being either disingenuous or beyond naive

I get what rangers are doing here and I suppose its fine.

But anyone who can't see anything potentially wrong or see that there might be an issue is either at it or has been completed taken in by Dave King and his enemies of Rangers pash.

It's a level of brainwashing that even the Catholic Church would be proud of.

There will be a full-on meltdoon tomorrow if they drop points to Murderwell and I can actually see it happening.

Hopefully a few season-ending injuries, too.
