I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles (West Ham United)

I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air
They fly so high, nearly reach the sky
And like my dreams they fade and die
 
Fortune's always hiding,
I've looked everywhere
I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air

Submitter's comments:

I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles is a song written by John Kellette, Jaan Kenbrovi, James Kendis, James Brockman and Nat Vincent that was released all the way back in 1918. In the late 1910s and early 1920s, the song was performed and recorded by most of the leading music groups of the time, but today it is famous for its West Ham connections that date back to the 1930s.

The Hammers were introduced to the anthem by manager of the time, Charlie Paynter, after he met a young trialist who looked like the boy in the well-known "Bubbles" painting by John Millais that was featured in a soap commercial at the time. And from that simple tale, I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles became the anthem of West Ham Utd.

Thanks!
