I'm dreaming of a Whitehawk Christmas

Owner: DWL Genre: Holiday Total Plays: 10
Quick Summary:

Christmas re-imagined

Media Description:

I've been a season ticket holder at my local non-league football club (Whitehawk FC) fot 6 years. Until lockdown in March I generally went to the games by myself and sat in the stand by myself and had very little interaction with anyone else. Since lock down started in March I've been at club Zoom quizzes as there were no games. Somehow it came out I was a musician and one of the other supporters asked if I could put some music to a song he was writing about the club. That went well and recently we came up with an idea to do a version of White Christmas. This is what happened.

Lyrics...

I'm dreaming of a Whitehawk Christmas 

Just like the ones we used to see 

Where the scoreboard glistens, and children listen 

To Hear the Ultras in the Din 


I'm dreaming of a Whitehawk Christmas 

With every Smirnoff Ice I buy 

May your games be merry and Bright 

For Santa's wearing Red and White 


I'm dreaming of a Whitehawk Christmas 

With every jingle of my Keys 

Where the drums and cowbell, and the pitch aint level 

And the wind and rain can make you freeze 

I'm dreaming of a Whitehawk Christmas 

With every Christmas Chant I hear 

Where the steps have a Motto, That beats Santa's grotto 

And you know a friend is very near 


I'm dreaming of a whitehawk Christmas 

Just like the one Bing sang today 

Where the players come to thank us, eat vegan pigs in blankets 

And sheep all stop to watch them play 

I'm dreaming of a whitehawk Christmas 

To watch the football that's for all 

losing or winning, the din keeps on singing 

Beneath the Christmas mirror ball 


I'm dreaming of a whitehawk Christmas 

Just like the ones we used to see 

Where the scoreboard glistens, and children listen 

To Hear the Ultras in there Din 

I'm dreaming of a whitehawk Christmas 

With every Smirnoff Ice I buy 

May your games be merry and Bright 

For Santa's wearing Red and White
