'As they marched they quite playing and sang the main chorus of Hey Baby and the whole crowd sang along and louder than the band. I wondered how did they know the song.'

Here in the UK, the opening bars of the Bruce Channel record 'Hey Baby' are often played at professional soccer grounds when the home team has just scored. All home supporters sing along. Many, by virtue of their age, will never have heard the whole record and probably know nothing about it or the name of the singer.

No point in trying to make sense of it - soccer lives in its own fantasy bubble.
