He’s done it again. The Eminem of York, Chuitar, has come up with a second anthem for York City’s latest Wembley visit.

Music lovers across the city responded to the news with the words, “Oh Chuitar, you are spoiling us!” as the rapper unleashed York In Motion.

Based largely on (ie nicked from) England New Order’s World In Motion, Chuitar has added his own lyrics which we reproduce below the video so fans can learn them by heart ahead of Sunday’s Wembley play-off showdown with Luton Town.

We love the sentiment “Let’s win promotion for Arthur Bottom.” Our only disappointment? It doesn’t include the line “Gotta love a Scotch egg” which echoed round the home of football on Saturday…

The sausage rolls in a microwave just doesn’t have the same ring somehow.




York In Motion

Well the York City players are celebrating on the pitch. They wanted to go to Wembley twice. And they are now.

Express yourself
City are ace
We know they can win
In the play-off race

We beat Mansfield
Now it’s Luton
We can go up
It’s one on one

Express yourself
It’s one on one
Express yourself
Let’s beat Luton
Express yourself
And sing this song
Let’s win promotion
For Arthur Bottom

York’s going for promotion
And I can’t believe it’s true
York’s going for promotion
We could end up in League 2

Now is the time
Let everyone see
Promotion achieved
Back at Wemberlee
Forget Oxford
That was a bad day
Let’s win the game
On the 20th of May

Express yourself
It’s one on one
Express yourself
Let’s beat Luton
Express yourself
And sing this song
For Walker, Blair, Smith and Ingham

York’s going for promotion
And I can’t believe it’s true
York’s going for promotion
We could end up in League 2

York’s going for promotion
We’re the ones in red and blue
York’s going for promotion
And we’ve won the Trophy too

We want sausage rolls. And at the service station we got one. A beauty, heated up in the microwave. We want sausage rolls.

You’ve got to hold and give
But do it at the right time
Eight years in the Conference
Don’t want it to be nine
Non-league can hit you and hurt you
We’ve taken some flak
Next up it’s Luton, let’s beat them
Then City are back
Catch me if you can
Cos I’m a Minsterman
And scoring goals for fun
Is our master plan
We ain’t no hooligans
This is a football song
Five lions on our badge
You know we can’t go wrong

We’re singing for City (York City)
We’re playing the song
We’re singing for City (York City)
The play-off final, it’s one on one

We’re singing for City (York City)
We’re playing the song
We’re singing for City (York City)
Get back to the league where we belong

We’re singing for City (York City)
We’re playing the song
We’re singing for City (York City)
Big up Jeff Miller, it’s one on one

We’re singing for City (York City)
We’re playing the song
We’re singing for City (York City)
The play-off final, it’s one on one
