Hereford – Float On

Hastily shoving his white suit back into the wardrobe, regular Talking Bull contributor Bill Thomas AKA Talking Billy Bollox, reveals just one of his 1970’s guilty pleasures.

One of my personal favourite records of all time is a 1977 hit called Float On by a group called the Floaters. I couldn’t admit to liking at the time, but secretly, I loved it. This was my guilty pleasure. If 1977 was before your time, Google it. Prompted by their parents, should our players sing their own versions of this song at a karaoke night. they might sound something like this.

Versatility, and my name is Keyon

Now I like expressing myself and playing with freedom

I like making goals and scoring goals of my own

And if you like that description, come and support me

Shake my hand, come and support us in Bulls Land

Let me show you how sweet it can be

Here at Hereford FC, I want you to

Float, float on (float on to the Football League)

Float on, float on

 

Defender, and my name is Ryan

Now I like to keep an opponent quiet

Especially an opponent that thinks he’s Mr Universe

Yeah …. shake my hand

Come and support us in Bulls Land

Three promotions, it’s three out of three

Share success with me, I want you to

Float, float on (float on)

Float on, float on (With Ryan)

Float, float, float on (Ooh, yeah)

Float on, float on

 

Fullback, and my name is Jimmy

Now I like getting forward and being creative with the ball

And if you like this way of playing

I want you too … Yeah, shake my hand

Come and join us in Bulls Land

Let me show you how sweet it can be

Here at Hereford FC, I want you to

Float, float on (Float on to the Football League)

Float on, float on (Yeah)

 

Striker, and my name is Lance,

And I like scoring goals against everyone and everybody

And you know what supporters, if seeing lots of goals is you

Then this is what I want you to do

Ooh, yeah, shake my hand

Let me take you to Bulls Land

Let me show you how sweet it can be

Sharing goals with Lancer,

Float, float on (float on to the Football League)

Float on, float on (Float on)

Float, float, float on (Yeah, yeah)

(We better float on)

(Float on) (Ah)

Bill Thomas
