Kaisaniemen Pallokenttä 1907: HJK Songs


This chant is about following and singing for Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi (HJK), also called Klubi, from when their first ground was founded, to the current day.The first line is about the founding of the club in 1907 at Kaisaniemi park (which has a football pitch), where the club originally played.The second part is about the club existing for over a hundred years, and so will outlive the chanters. The latter part is difficult to translate directly to English, and literally means ([(you) stay] [after (me)] [live]).The third part is about singing when HJK ("Klubi") are playing away, from paskakoski ("shit-rapids", which refers to reeking factory towns, particularly when they play away to FC Haka in Valkeakoski and MyPa in Myllykoski - note that both of these towns end in "koski") to Europe (refers to playing away from Finland, such as in European competitions).The last part is about returning to the stadium to sing in the club stand ("Klubipääty"), the main supporter stand.

Lyrics

Kaisaniemen pallokenttä - kesäkuu nollaseitsemän, Sadan vuoden jälkeen täällä - jäät jälkeeni elämää, Klubi, kuule, sulle mä sjungaan - paskakoskelta Eurooppaan, Joka reissulta aina palaan - Klubipäätyyn laulamaan... Sha-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la la-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la la-la-la-la...

Lyrics

Kaisaniemi ball field - June '07, After a hundred years here - you'll live on after me, Klubi, listen, I'll sing for you - from the shit-rapids to Europe, Every trip I come back - to the club end to sing, Sha-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la la-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la la-la-la-la...
