Why do Nottingham Forest fans sing Mull of Kintyre?

Nottingham Forest first played the Paul McCartney and Wings hit at the City Ground before their triumphant win over Yeovil Town in 2008 which saw an inspired Forest seal promotion back into the Championship.

My desire is always to be here

Forest sing their own version of the Paul McCartney hit

Oh mist rolling in from the Trent

My desire is always to be here

Games when we sang in the Nottingham choir

When we thrashed the sheep from Derbyshire

Oh mist rolling in from the Trent

My desire is always to be here

Oh City Ground

Smiles in the sunshine, Football like champagne

Still take me back to where my memories remain

Flickering embers growing higher and higher

And a new squad of players for us to inspire
