Learning a few soccer/football songs

Okay, so you've been to one or two soccer games here in Germany and you find the atmosphere somewhat addictive. However, you feel like the only one who wasn't in on the singing lessons. There are songs and rituals that happen at soccer games that can add to the enjoyment of the game. A few songs are common to many games, but each team will have one or two songs that are exclusively sung there.

Most importantly one should learn "Einer geht noch rein" (one more can go in):


Then, there is the obvious hand waving furor that happens during a corner shot. Of course, if you haven't been to a stadium and experienced a stadium wide wave happen, then you probably aren't reading this article.

If you live in Hamburg, then you should be familiar with Lotto King Karl's song "Hamburg meine Perle":
Wenn ich weit, weit weg bin
Ob in Juve oder Rom
dann denk ich "Hamburg meine Perle" und singe:
home sweet home!


I have to admit having enjoyed following the World Cup here in Germany. Of course there were songs created for the occasion. To cheer Germany on the song "54 74 90 2006" was created. Those were the years (except 2006) that Germany won the World Cup.
