United Calypso

United Calypso is the oldest United song still being sung today, although the lyrics have changed slightly from the original version, written by Edmondo Ross in 1953.

Man United fans have been singing since roughly the 60’s and it’s regularly heard both home and away.

Lyrics

Oh Manchester, Manchester United
A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes
They deserved to be knighted
Whenever they’re playing in your town
Be sure to get to that football ground
Take a lesson, come and see
Football taught by Matt Busby

Oh Manchester, Manchester United
A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes
They deserved to be knighted
