Lyrics[edit]

As sung on the terraces[edit]

Hail Hail the Celts Are Here

Hail Hail, the Celts are here,
What the hell do we care,
What the hell do we care,
Hail Hail, the Celts are here,
What the hell do we care now..

For its a grand old team to play for,
For its a grand old team to see,
And if you know the history,
Its enough to make your heart go,
GO-OH-OH-OH! {or, 9-In-A-Row}

We don't care what the animals say,
What the hell do we care,
For all we know,
Is that there's going to be a show,
And the Glasgow Celtic will be there.

Full Version[edit]

Hail Hail the Celts Are Here

For it's a grand old team to play for,

For it's a grand old team be dad,
And when you read its history,
It's enough to make your heart go sad,
God bless them.

We don't care if we win lose or draw,
Darn the hair do we care,
For we only know that there's going to be a show,
And the Glasgow Celtic will be there.

Sure it's the best darn team in Scotland,
And its players all are grand,
We support the Celtic,
As they are the finest in the land
We love them,
We'll be there to give the Bhoys a cheer
When the league flag flies,
And they cheers us up when we know the Scottish Cup
Is coming home to rest at Paradise.

Sure it's a grand old team to play for,
Sure it's a grand old team be dad,
And when you read its history,
It's enough to make your heart go sad,
God bless them.
We don't care if we win lose or draw,
Darn the hair do we care,
For we only know that there's going to be a show,
And the Glasgow Celtic will be there,
And the Glasgow Celtic will be there.
