I have often speculated on how football chants are born. Do a bunch of fans get together, have a few words, then make up the words? Perhaps supporters find themselves in holiday resort like Benitses or Palma Nova and the karaoke breaks down, so the improvise with a few choice words of their own.
This is my favourite chant
Newcastle fans towards Sunderland fans. 'Going down, going down, going down. '
Sunderland fans reply..... 'So are we, so are we, so are we. '

Who ate all the Victorian pies?
The football chant 'Who ate all the pies?' dates back more than 100 years, researchers have discovered. Sung to the tune of 'Knees Up Mother Brown', it was directed at Sheffield United's 24 stone goalkeeper William 'Fatty' Foulke by his own fans in 1894.
The history was revealed in new dictionary: 'The Penguin Book of Clichés'. William Foulke also played professional cricket for Derbyshire and won a single cap playing football for England in 1897 against Wales. He was reputed to be 6 feet 7 inches tall. Fatty Foulke also won the Football League championship [equivalent of the Premier League] and two FA cup winners medals.
