Verse 1

Come on, come on, come on, come on

(Together) Hibs and Hearts will play

(Together) On cup final day

(Together) We will cross the land

(Together) Give our team a hand

(From Granton) up to Arthur’s Seat

(From Gorgie) to the Docks of Leith

(500), miles we will walk

(To the final) We’ll all flock


(Go East) Where the pandas munch

(Go East) They eat bamboo fur lunch

(Go East) Salt n sauce on chips

(Go East) Then they swing their hips

Verse 2

(Together) We sing Shang-a-lang

(Together) Prove the Weegies wrang

(Together) Goals we want to see

(Together) A friendly rivalry

(We know that) Edinburgh is the best

(And Murrayfield) Better than the rest

(But Together) We will Hampden grace

(Of the Old Firm) There will be no trace


(Go East) There’s real football there

(Go East) Free from the tax man’s glare

(Go East) Not a Rab C vest

(Go East) With soap we are blessed

(Go East) Life is better here

(Go East) Our tourists have no fear

(Go East) A special Derby day

(Go East) The Cup’s our destiny

Verse 3

(Aah) Here where it’s Buckie free

We’ll be (We’ll be) what we want to be

(Aah aah aah aah) And if we make a stand

(Aah) We’ll get (We’ll get) our promised trams (Aah)

(We love you) Magic Auld Reekie

(We know that) You won’t disagree

(So that’s why) We hope you’ll hum along

(And join us) As we share our song

(Cockenzie) By Port Seton ye ken

(Dalkeith) They call lassies hen

(From Tranent) To the big Bass Rock

(Of football) There is so much talk


(Go East) Where Sir Sean sold milk

(Go East) We’ve Rebus and his ilk

(Go East) Where Stottie’s on the air

(Go East) Boogie and Dingo, what a pair

Come on, come on, come on, come on

Go East
