'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cardiff City 'Do The Ayatollah': Music & Lyrics


Guitar Chords and lyrics for Steve Thompson's FA Cup Final Song 'Do The Ayatollah'. Thommo and Kev McNaughton initially worte the song (fuelled by red wine!) after the semi-final victory over Barnsley.

A re-write, live recording and Queen Street acoustic session later, here's the song as written and performed by Steve Thompson. Not bad for a player on the transfer list all season!!!


Capo Third fret




Am C G C
And on that bonny pitch in Chasetown, when we went one nil down.
Am C G C
Written off at the Riverside, but we took it all in our stride.
Am C G C
When your thoughts are far away, are you dreaming about Wembley?
Am C G C
And on the 17th of May, you can go down in history.

C Am F
Do the ayatollah, put your hands upon you head, and shout. Out loud.
C Am F
Do the ayatollah, put your hands upon you head, and shout. Out loud. And Proud.


Am C G Am C G
Cardiff City-y. We`re going all the way-y-y. Cardiff City-y.


Am C G C
And I`m sure we`ll tell our grandkids, just like the `27 heroes did.
Am C G C
Tell them tales and exaggerations, 'bout ticket complications,
Am C G C
Cardiff, Dubai, Barbados - we`ve got the whole wide world behind us.
Am C G C
When your thoughts are far away, are you dreaming about Wembley?

C Am F
Do the ayatollah, put your hands upon you head, and shout. Out loud.
C Am F
Do the ayatollah, put your hands upon you head, and shout. Out loud. And Proud.


Am C G Am C G
Cardiff City-y. We`re going all the way-y-y. Cardiff City-y.

Am C G Am C G
Cardiff City-y. We`re going all the way-y-y. Cardiff City-y.
