After the controversy over Rangers fans singing The Famine Song, this week saw an odder story of complaints over the Hokey Cokey that has now joined the list of songs on the sectarian repertoire. We are supposed to believe some soccer fans are educated in lyrical history and are using mockery of transubstantiation and priestcraft to get at Catholic supporters. This is meant to be based on the supposed origins of the song in bastardising the phrase Hoc est enim Corpus meum from the Latin mass.
Me, Im a cynic and dont buy it.
I reckon they are alluding to a much more recent bastardisation of the song (YouTube video not work safe):
