Reading FC co-chairwoman Khunying Sasima Srivikorn caused a bit of a stir ahead of the season when it was revealed she had penned a new club song.

'They Call us the Royals', which even contains an excruciating rap verse, didn't exactly get rave reviews when it was first heard ahead of the opening game of the season against Leeds.

The song, given as "a gift" to the club by Lady Svrikorn, has now got its own music video.

It's as bad as you would expect.

Unfortunately for Lady Srivikorn, the song has not got the rave reviews she may have expected.

Fans of Reading and other clubs took to social media in their droves to slate the unintentionally hilarious song and cringeworthy video.

Poor Reading fans.

Here are the lyrics in full:

We Are The Royals

Verse 1

We started when all the odds defied us

Through passion and dreams we reached new heights

We were marching proudly from Elm Park into the stadium

We forced our rivals to make way

Sir John Madjeski with Lady Sasima

Pre-chorus

Now we’re here and we’re strong, we’re going to bring it on

Can you hear when we shout come on

Chorus

We will fight til the end, they call us the Royals

With our might we’ll defend, the glory of Reading

Like the kings of our land, they call us the Royals

Let us sing every man, we stand by the Royals

Verse 2

We rise to the challenge of our rivals

We’re fighting the butterflies tonight

It’s our moment, feel the expectations rising

We smell a victory today

Rap

How we love the thrill of a good game

How we like the smell of the fame

Doesn’t matter if we learn or win

Unstoppably we burn within

Getting ready to shed our sweat

Everybody get ready and set

Let’s celebrate tonight. Or blood is blue our wings are white.

Chant

Blue and white, blue and white, blue and white

Give us blue and white, blue and white. Everybody come on.

A capella

Like the kings of our land. they call us the Royals

Let us sing every man, we stand by the Royals
