‘They Call Us The Royals’ – Reading Unveil Atrocious New Club Anthem, Co-Written By Their 76-Year-Old Chairwoman (Video)

As threatened several weeks ago, Reading have finally farted out the video for their new club anthem, co-written as a “trendy gift” by the Royals’ 76-year-old chairwoman, Khunying Sasima Svrikorn.

Unsurprisingly, ‘They Call Us The Royals’ is a thundering clusterdump of sappy Eurovision-esque balladry, tawdry rap and weird acapella bits.

The video, which is to be played on the big screens at the Madejski Stadium before matches, is also suitably naff, with cameo turns from Reading players Garath McCleary and Hal Robson Kanu, as well as Pavel Pogrebnyak, who left the club in August.

All in all, it’s absolutely bloody absymal…

Those stirring lyrics again, once more for luck…

We Are The Royals

Verse 1

We started when all the odds defied us

Through passion and dreams we reached new heights

We were marching proudly from Elm Park into the stadium

We forced our rivals to make way

Pre chorus

Now we’re here and we’re strong, we’re going to bring it on

Can you hear when we shout come on


We will fight til the end, they call us the Royals

With our might we’ll defend, the glory of Reading

Like the kings of our land, they call us the Royals

Let us sing every man, we stand by the Royals

Verse 2

We rise to the challenge of our rivals

We’re fighting the butterflies tonight

It’s our moment, feel the expectations rising

We smell a victory today


How we love the thrill of a good game

How we like the smell of the fame

Doesn’t matter if we learn or win

Unstoppably we burn within

Getting ready to shed our sweat

Everybody get ready and set

Let’s celebrate tonight. Or blood is blue our wings are white.


Blue and white, blue and white, blue and white

Give us blue and white, blue and white. Everybody come on.

A capella

Like the kings of our land. they call us the Royals

Let us sing every man, we stand by the Royals
