This article is about the Carefree chant. For other uses, see Carefree.

"Carefree" is a football chant, sung by followers of the Chelsea football club, mainly at away games, and meant to demonstrate indifference and possibly belligerence when in an alien, hostile environment. The original tune is "Lord of the Dance".[1]


The chant was first sung on a trip of fans to an away game in Sweden, ca. 1982.[2] The lyrics were probably put together by a terrace regular named Mick Greenaway.[2]

Carefree, wherever we may be
We are the famous CFC
And we don't care
Whoever you may be
'Cause we are the famous CFC

Usually, the chant is sung with bawdier lyrics.
