Hello Hello - Song
|Songs and Anthems | Legends and Supporters|
Strange as it may seem but the "Hello Hello" tune also has Celtic related variants. Most recognised as a Rangers song nowadays, in the early years both clubs had songs built on the back of the tune.
The original song is actually an old American Civil War song called "Marching Into Georgia" about forces moving in to free slaves. The tune swept across the Atlantic and took hold in the West of Scotland, and in fact some state that actually the Celtic fans were first to use the song before it was appropriated by the Huns who turned it into a bigoted anthem for themselves.
One Celtic variant used the tune referencing the Tim Malloys. This version was not a Celtic regular but variations were used over the early years such as the following after a 5-0 win against Rangers in a Cup semi-final in the 1920s.
#Hello Hello, we are the Tim Alloys
Hello Hello, you can hear us by the noise
We beat the Rangers in the Cup
Was great to be alive
Not one, not two, not three, not four BUT FIVE!!!!#
Nowadays, the only variation on the song sung by the Celtic support is in mockery of the Huns. After a satisfying victory, all the words are replaced by "Ha Ha" as we laugh at them to wind them up. Works a treat
