‘They Call Us The Royals’ – Reading FC Chairwoman Writes New Club Song That Includes A Rap Verse

14th, August 2015



Reading FC’s co-chairwoman Khunying Sasima Svrikorn has done the Championship side the great service of writing them a brand new club anthem.

Entitled ‘We Are The Royals’, the song encompasses a rap verse, a chant and an acapella section and will be played over the stadium loudspeakers to rouse the crowd before the club’s first home game of the season against Leeds United this coming Sunday.

According to Lady Sasima (a composer by trade) herself, the song is “trendy”, co-written by a “world class composer” and is very much of the “British Rock” genre. It also comes with an accompanying music video that will be played on the big screens at the Madejski before kick-off.

“I, along with my friends, wrote a song as a gift for Reading Football Club,” Lady Sasima, 76, told the Reading website.

“I was in the studio for many days doing that. It’s so meaningful for us to open the season well and for us to feel the spirit and the emotion of the fans with us. They have to be inside us.”

And so, the moment you’ve been waiting for. The lyrics…

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

Stirring stuff, we think you’ll agree – and almost certain to become a staple war cry at Reading for centuries to come.
