hi ho silver lining

Recommended Posts

Not like Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers play it. Totally unique to us, for definite. Nobody knows the words anyway, just the 'hi ho' business. Doesn't do a lot for me. It's ok though. Better than most other grounds'.

I'm not gonna lie, I've never liked it and never sang it. It's proper cheesy

who thinks It needs dropping and replacing with something better to get the fans going

 

 

I'm not going to neg this as it seems that loads already have, but this has to be one of the most ill thought out posts in the history of Owlstalk. May I suggest that you cannot have been at S6 for the Newcastle or Derby games, because I can assure you that Hillsborough was rocking when Hi-Ho Silver Lining was being sung.

Its the only song The South knows, You change it now and they're f.ooked, unless we start doing "White cliffs of Dover " or summatt, owt else it will take 'em 10 years to catch up

Love Hi Ho and hope we stick with it

 

I do think and have thought for years that we need our own anthem though. Hi Ho is great but we also need something that belongs to us like Stoke have Delilah and City Blue Moon

 

But Hi Ho should still be blasted out regardless

On a family holiday in Ibiza when I was a nipper in the late 70's, staying at one of those hotels where they had "entertainment " on round the pool and Silver Lining was played, I always remember a Man U fan commenting that only "Sheffield" fans sung it!

 

Had a chat with a Wolves fan in the Fat Cat the other year, after we'd played each other and he said they adopted it after hearing us sing it??

 

Either way, that opening few bars always sends the fur up, we do it better, regardless of who adopted it first.

 

Always look on the bright side of life was ours n'all!  Fv.ck what the Mancs say!

sure wolves always ran out to a " BOOKER T" number back in the day

Sort it for your peace of mind.

I think a polite and gentle applause from everyone involved is the way forward.
