Making the Billy Boys safe…your suggestions

Richard Fillingham

Our poll showed that 73% of Rangers
supporters wanted to change the words of offensive sectarian songs. I want to
prove that we can have a great song to sing at Ibrox and at away games, and be
able to sing our hearts out without annoying
UEFA or the SFA, and more
importantly, give them NO REASON to ban us. 
The first five versions are written
by myself, and if anybody can supply me with better lines or ideas, then I
would be very much obliged. I am looking for as much input from as many Rangers
fans as possible, so that the old Billy Boys becomes a joy to sing for
everybody.



The Billy Boys (2016 song version/s)
Hello, Hello, we are the Rangers Boys,
Hello, Hello, you’ll know us by our noise
The beauty of this Rangers team – we
simply are the best:
And we – always want to beat the
rest.
Hello, Hello, we are the Rangers
boys,
Hello, Hello, you’ll know us by our noise
With 54, we’ll get loads more- and a
song that can’t be banned
For we are – the best team in the
land.
Hello, Hello, we are the Rangers
boys,
Hello, Hello, you’ll know us by our noise
Support our team, fulfill our
dream, at Ibrox or away
For we – love to watch the Rangers play.
Hello, Hello, we are the Rangers Boys,
Hello, Hello, you’ll know us by our noise
We’re the best fans – in the whole
wide world – of that there is no doubt
We want to win the league and shout.
Hello, Hello, we are the Rangers Boys,
Hello, Hello, you’ll know us by our noise
Our trophy case has little space – it
makes us all rejoice
For we are the Glasgow Rangers boys
Yes – we are the Glasgow Rangers
boys – HELLO!
We already have two versions from the
last comments feature, and they have similar ideas to me – we look forward to
seeing your versions of a great song!
Hello, Hello, we are the Rangers
boys,
Hello, hello, you’ll know us by our
noise
We’ll give anything to see our
team, at Ibrox or away
For we are the Glasgow Rangers
boys….
Hello, Hello, we are the Rangers
boys,
Hello, Hello, you’ll know us by our
noise
We work all day to watch our team,
at Ibrox or away
For we are the Glasgow Rangers
boys….

  1. Hello hello I'm a teddy bear
    Hello hello I'm baldy got no hair
    I'm up to my knees in sausage rolls
    And pies and chips and beans
    For i am a big fat teddy bear

    • Hello Hello we are the Ranger voice
      Hello Hello you'll know us by our noise
      They tried to kill our football team
      We didn't surrender or die
      for we are the Glasgow Rangers voice

  2. Hello hello we are the Billy Boys,
    Hello Hello you'll hear us by our noise,
    All around the stands, well make commands, that our team step up and play,
    Because that is – The Glasgow Rangers way.

  3. Hello hello we are the Billy boys
    Hello hello you'll know us by our noise
    They spend all day to troll us
    But we don't give a toss
    For we are the Rangers Billy boys.

  4. Hello hello i really am so fat
    Hello hello no hair below my hat
    But i love the Glasgow Rangers
    And will do till i die
    For I am a big fat Ibrox guy

  5. I don't know why you are pushing this,i joined in the billy boys song years ago but not now,it does not matter if u change the lyrics we have people watching the gers who will never stop with the old words,change the words if u like but the haters will be listening very closely for one mistake and they will get it and we will get done some people just cannot control their emotions,the haters are listening and u know who they are,so called football fans from the east end of glasgow, the so called journalists from the record evening times etc who will just love to see us get done. Find some new songs or copy some other teams songs, whats wrong with the west ham song blowin bubbles that one can stir the blood.

    • Hi Olly,
      I feel that for the long-term Rangers benefit, it is well worth the effort to at least give it a go. If I am wasting my time – well I am retired and it is my own time. Political correctness is everywhere now and racism and sayings are no longer acceptable.That's why I wanted to do an Ibrox Noise poll to find an accurate ratio of who said yes and how many said no – well it's 2 to 1 for change. I personally think the tune is excellent and certainly worth saving, so that's what I am having a go with.

  6. Agree 100% stop sectarian singing and give them no reason to try and ban us.Use your head!
    I wish someone could write a good Rangers song.I love the penny arcade and also simply the best until idiots put add ons into it.

    • Dont go to ibrox then. Its people like you that sit on the fence thats the idiot. They are trying to change a culture its racist are you thick? Lets just all follow a bunch of child molesting old men in robes and a stupid looking hat because society says its ok. But we cant sing fenian. All the hatred has been caused by politicians but now because they have moved on too new targets they want play the blame game and the finger is always in our direction. They caused it all and now muslims are the same as catholics back then .give them a home a job an opertunity to have a better life but thats wasnt good enough we have had to change our ways to accomodate. Anyone who comes to live here should be grateful and change there ways to show appreciation to the people who live here. Not complain that we are not accomodating enough if they don't like it go back home and let us try rebuild our great country back from the divided sh1t hole its turned out to be thanks to the political criminals.

  7. The term "Billy Boys" is not sectairian as the village I grew up in we use the term "C-den billy boys" & I know Cardenden had no razor gangs in the 50s.
    The only ones who insist it is are the sectairian bigots who choose to infer their own beliefs into our words.

    To make the song acceptable to the authorities we simply need to change 2 words replacing Fenien blood with SILVERWARE.

  8. Hello hello we r the rangers boys
    Hello hello youll know us by our noise
    With swirling scarf and no surrender chants.
    We are the glasgow rangers boys.

  9. Anyone my age will remember different lyrics on the old blue record with the rosette on the front, sung by the team if I remember (maybe not). I think it was 'A goal, A goal' that was sung with all the usual first verse of 'We are the people who sing of victory….'
    It was strange changing the lyrics to that song, as I think I remember a few unchanged numbers on the record.
    Anyway, as one poster said earlier, it wont change much when you are at an away match with a drink in you. Best avoided, or only sung in company.

    • Whats wrong with singing hello hello we are the billy boys,hello hello youll know us by our noise,we are the glasgow rangers, our heart is strong and true we are the people who wear the royal blue. no surrender.

  10. Version of the song are used all over the world so why can't we tidy it up a little and belt it out?

    Can't we just change the word fen@£n to Celtic and repeat. Can't stop us singing that.

  11. There was title number 1 and the fun has just begun, come on Rangers lets do it all again.
    then to title number 2, come on the boys in blue it's too easy and we welcome the chase.
    Off to title number 3, and it's coming over the blue sea. Rangers a force and not to be stopped

    This song could last the 90 minutes…lol

  12. its our own bloody fault pandering to the easily offended im 63 now and seen it happening years ago other wards we let the scum take over they want us to change while we listen to their shite

  13. HELLO HELLO We are the peoples voice
    HELLO HELLO Youll know us by our noise
    We're up to our knees in celtic blood
    Surrender or you'll die
    For we are the Glasgow Rangers voice

  14. HELLO HELLO We are the peoples voice
    HELLO HELLO Youll know us by our noise
    We're up to our knees in celtic blood
    Surrender or you'll die
    For we are the Glasgow Rangers voice

  15. Get rid of it, it's simply not worth the hassle, in times of emotion and relief some people will always revert to the old words and this just provides the faux offended with another stick to beat us with. We could adopt "Mary had a little lamb" as an ironic substitute, though no doubt the line "its fleece was white as snow" would be construed as racist.

  16. Are you guys nuts. The words are not sectarian. The words are about history you cant change history. The sfa and uefa are racist for not accepting our culture. The scottish national anthem that would get played at big tournaments if they ever make it too one again has words of hatred towards the english for things that happened hundreds of years ago before there was a society .So why is it ok for them? Ths sfa and the whole of scottish football is an embarassment . They are all in it for there selfes. There is no youth development from the sfa whatsoever and when some talent does emerge half of them would rather play for there gran and grandas nation than there own. The sfa are a political party that get involved football. They are completly against Britain in every way. We have union flags big help for hero’S events we sing god save the Queen and rule Britannia . Is there even any question why we are scotlands escape rope. The day we start changing words to songs to suit the true bigots that cant accept our culture. That is the day we admit defeat and the next independence referendum may just see us lose our connection to one of the best countries the world produced Great Britain.The SNP are deliberately trying to cause this divide for political gane.We Are The People and dont let anyone try change your culture.If they do try they are racist .

    • My predictive text changed SNP to SFA. The SFA are not a political party all though the SNP has a big say in the goings on in the SFA along with Celtic chairman peter lawell. That says it all

    • So what part of "up to our knees in fenian blood" can be construed as non-sectarian?

      If only your predictive text had changed a lot more than SNP; then your post might have made some sense!

  17. Hello hello we are the billy boys
    hello hello you'll no us by our noise
    We follow Glasgow rangers
    Our hearts are strong and true
    For WE ARE THE PEOPLE
    who cheer the boys in blue

    BY FAR THE BEST ALTERNATIVE

  18. HELLO HELLO GET SPORTS DIRECT TAA FUK OUT OUR CLUB, DONT GIVE THE FAT RAT A PENNY MORE,, WATP

  19. hello hello we are the billy boys
    hello hello you'll know us by our noise
    we are the Glasgow Rangers we're Rangers till we die
    for we are the Bridgeton Derry boys

  20. Since Celtic fans complain about the words to the Billy boys then why don't we just turn the song completely against them with this non sectarian version that highlights their horrible past.
    Hello Hello we are King Billy's boys
    Hello Hello Celtic shag wee boys. We re up to our nuts in blood and guts surrender or you'll die we hate you Celtic pedophiles. Then repeat for 90 mins

    Fight fire with fire lets see them reporting that to UEFA maybe highlight the need for a very public inquiry "which lets face it is the reason they never complain about us calling them peados to UEFA"

  21. My songs too close to the bone its not sectarian just reminds the pe a dos of their past needs approved first. Lyrics were crackers as well Jim Morrison moment it was.

  22. I did like this version but gave it a few tweaks. Think this one sounds the best without being too cringey and soft.

    Hello Hello we are the Govan Boys
    Hello Hello you'll know us by our noise
    They tried to kill our football team
    We didn't surrender or die
    for we are the Rangers FC
    HELLO

  23. hello hello we are the billy boys
    hello hello you'll know us by our noise
    we are up to our knees in fiends blood(instead of fenian)
    surrender or youll die
    for we are the brighton derry boys -problem solved youve got rid of the word
    fenian
