Over the years, the pop beat combo chart listings, classic songbooks, nursery rhymes, hymns etc of the world have been mercilessly pillaged to provide us with songs to pay tribute to many of our favourite players. Of course, they've also been used to hurl abuse at ones we don't like or wish to mock for various reasons.

What one(s) have you liked the most?

I'll kick it off with a fairly rare use of 2Unlimited's 'No Limits' for Bobby, Bobby Bobby, Bobby Bobby, Bobby Bowry

Come on without
Come on within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Queen.

From Manfred Mann's "Mighty Quinn"

For Gerry, for the youngsters out there.

To the tune of the Macarena
Misses from a yard and his name is Akinbiyi
Misses from a yard and his name is Akinbiyi
Misses from a yard and his name is Akinbiyi
Adi Akinbiyi - shite

I might have this wrong, but there was a chant in the mid 80's that I'm sure was:

"Jim-boyo, Jim-boyo, Jim-boyo, Jim-boyo" which was for Jim Cannon.

But crazily - I'm not sure that is exactly what was being sung!

Not one of ours, but I once heard the geordies singing
'His name is Mirandinha
He's not from Argentina
He's from Brazil
He's f*****g brill'

I believe Chris Armstrong had a song based on hey hey hey Goodbye by Bananarama, with the additional chant of 'poppadom' tacked on the end

Oh Andy Johnson's magic he wears a magic hat
and when sees the match ball he says I'm having that
he scores with his left foot
he scores with his right
and he plays against Brighton
he scores all f*****g night!

A song for one ( me).

When Hedman received treatment on the pitch, I always found myself singing "A massage to you Rudi"

Andy Johnson's magic he wears a magic hat
And when he saw the match ball he said I'm having that
He scores them with his left foot
He scores them with his right
And when he's playing Brighton
He scores all f*****g night

My favourite. Love it when it gets sung at away games.

Not a Palace one, but a Newcastle supporter of my acquaintance told me of a song that they used to sing about Steve Howey when he played for them. His brother Lee played for Sunderland at the time. It was sung to that Foxhunter tune.

Steve Howey, Steve Howey, Steve Howey,
Your brother is a c**t

You are the king of pornography
You stuck two fingers up at John Gregory
Before you signed for MUFC.

Earliest version I remember of that one was for Roger Hoy.
