Allez Paris Saint-Germain (Go Paris Saint-Germain) is the official hymn of Paris Saint-Germain F.C..[1] It was commissioned by former Vice-president and shareholder Charles Talar in 1977. The hymn was given its official debut during the 1977–78 season.[2] The original lyrics were written by French group Les Parisiens and the music follows the rhythm of Village People's song "Go West".[3] Paris Saint-Germain presented their official anthem and mascot during the 2010 Tournoi de Paris. The lyrics of "Go West" were rewritten following the suggestions made by the fans in PSG's website. The club's official anthem is played before every match at the Parc des Princes. Germain the lynx was presented as the new mascot of PSG.[4] "Allez Paris Saint-Germain" is the club's anthem, but "Oh Ville Lumière" (Oh City of Light) is considered by the fans to be one of PSG's most emblematic songs.[5] The Kop of Boulogne (KoB) are known for versioning songs heard in British stadiums. Thus, was born Oh City of Lights directly inspired by the Scottish anthem Flower of Scotland. The song is considered a true club hymn. The club's motto "Paris Est Magique" comes from a mythical song at the Parc des Princes.[6] PSG's first logo and hymn appeared during 1970–71. Allez Paris! became the first official anthem of the club and was performed by Annie Cordy.[7]

In 2012, the song was rewritten as the Hymne du PSG, with its melody based on the Pet Shop Boys' version of "Go West."

Lyrics Translation

Allez Paris Saint-Germain !

Allez Paris Saint-Germain !

Chantez Paris Saint-Germain !

Allez les Parisiens !

Au temps où nos idoles étaient chanteurs

On portait leurs noms écrits sur nos cœurs

Les salles étaient pleines à craquer

Au temps passé !

Mais un jour nos disques se sont usés

Et Paris Saint-Germain est arrivé

Trois lettres sont restées gravées : le PSG

Allez Paris Saint-Germain !

Jouez Paris Saint-Germain !

Chantez Paris Saint-Germain !

Allez les Parisiens !

Allez Paris-Saint-Germain !

Jouez Paris-Saint-Germain !

Chantez Paris-Saint-Germain !

Allez les Parisiens !

Aujourd'hui nos idoles sont footballeurs

Des coupes, ils sortiront les vainqueurs

Tous, on va les encourager

Ils nous font vibrer

Bientôt le Parc sera trop petit

Pour y recevoir nos équipes amies

Très fort, il nous faudra crier :

Vive PSG !

Allez Paris-Saint-Germain !

Jouez Paris-Saint-Germain !

Chantez Paris-Saint-Germain !

Allez les Parisiens !

Allez Paris-Saint-Germain !

Jouez Paris-Saint-Germain !

Chantez Paris-Saint-Germain !

Allez PSG, allez Paris, Paris-Saint-Germain !

Go Paris Saint-Germain!

Go Paris Saint-Germain!

Sing Paris Saint-Germain!

Go Parisians!

In the days when singers were our idols

They wore their names written on our hearts

The rooms were full to bursting

As time passes!

But one day our discs became worn

And Paris Saint-Germain came

Three letters remained engraved: PSG

Go Paris Saint-Germain!

Play Paris Saint-Germain!

Sing Paris Saint-Germain!

Go Parisians!

Go Paris Saint-Germain!

Play Paris Saint-Germain!

Sing Paris Saint-Germain!

Go Parisians!

Today our idols are footballers

In cups, they will emerge winners

Everyone will encourage

They make us vibrate

Soon Le Parc will be too small

To receive our friendly teams

Very strong, we must shout

PSG live!

Go Paris Saint-Germain!

Play Paris Saint-Germain!

Sing Paris Saint-Germain!

Go les Parisiens!

Go Paris Saint-Germain!

Play Paris Saint-Germain!

Sing Paris Saint-Germain!

PSG Go, Go Paris, Paris Saint-Germain!

Oh Ville Lumière[edit]

Lyrics Translation

O Ville Lumière

Sens la chaleur, de notre coeur

Vois-tu notre ferveur

Quand nous marchons près de toi, dans cette quête

Chasser l'ennemi, enfin pour que nos couleurs

Brillent encore

Oh City of Light

Feel the warmth of our heart

You see our fervor

When we walk beside you in this quest

Hunt the enemy, until finally our colors

Shine again
