‘We’ll Keep The Blue Flag Flying High’ chant/song

we will keep the blue flag flying high

The Chelsea song, “We’ll Keep The Blue Flag Flying High” is sung to the tune of the socialist song “The Red Flag“, itself based upon the melody of the German carol O Tannenbaum. “O Tannenbaum” is a German song from 1824 which was translated as “O Christmas Tree” (a ‘tannenbaum’ is a fir tree).

The lyrics go like this:

Wherever they’re playing we’ll follow our team
‘Cos we’re the Chelsea and we’re supreme
For we will fear no one we’ll do it or die
We’ll keep the Blue Flag flying high

Flying high up in the sky
We’ll keep the Blue Flag flying high
From Stamford Bridge to Wembley
We’ll keep the Blue Flag flying high

The Chelsea supporters will always be there
Whoever we’re playing had better beware
We follow the Blue team forget all the rest
Because we’re the Chelsea and we’re the best

We’re Chelsea diehards we’ve lived with the pain
We’ve tasted glory we can do it again
We’re going to be feared now at home and afar
The Pride of London is what we are

Way back in our history a deal was clinched
That saw Mr Abramovich buy Stamford Bridge
We’re riding high now with Roman as king
When we get to Wembley you’ll hear us sing
