We wunt be druv

Owner: DWL Genre: Folk (contemporary) Total Plays: 24
Quick Summary:

An old Sussex saying

Media Description:


Something a little different.

I commented recently that I'd been working on a musical for my local football (soccer!) club. 

I wasn't sure that any of the songs would be relevant to anyone else but said I'd post one anyway. 

"We wunt be druv" is an old Sussex (where I live) saying which basically says we're not going be told what to do. 

It pretty much sums up our attitude at the club. We'll go our own way. 

This is the closing number of the musical

A song for Sussex Day and Whitehawk FC. 


Lyrics: Ollie Learmonth, Dick Langford 

Music: Dick Langford 

Vocals: Dick Langford, Ollie, Scarlet and Woody Learmonth, Oddsnevens, Sheila Wilks 

Make of it what you will!

We Wunt be Druv 

Standing up, and standing tall 

We wun't be druv, We wun't be druv 

This is where football's for all 

We wun't be druv at all 

The hawks are flying with the dove 

We Wunt Be Druv, We Wunt be Druv 

Side by side, love with love 

We Wunt Be Druv at all 


We’ll sing it ‘til our throats are raw 

We’ll sing it so you can't ignore 

Passion like fire / peace like dove 

We Wunt be Druv, We Wunt be Druv 


In salty air we hoist our flag 

We wun't be druv, We wun't be druv 

All hands on deck, we can’t be gagged 

We wun't be druv at all 

Against the tide, we’ll stand with Pride 

We wun't be druv, We wun't be druv 

We'll sing it loud and never hide 

We Wunt Be Druv at all 


Sussex, the land by the Sea 

Come join us and you will see 

The best of us and you won't be 

Wunt Be Druv at all 


Stand with us, all kindred souls 

We Wunt Be Druv, We Wunt Be Druv 

In unity our voices bold 

We Wunt Be Druv at all 

Our message clear, it's from the hill 

We Wunt Be Druv, We Wunt Be Druv 

If you ain’t heard, then you soon will 

We Wunt Be Druv at all 


Our Sisters and our brothers cheers 

Say it Til the whole world hears 

We're Whitehawk and we'll make it clear 

We Wunt Be Druv at all 


In unity we stand together 

Rain or shine what 'err the weather 

Sing with pride “Whitehawk forever” 

We wunt be druv at all
