From George (Greek Georgios d. 303 A.D.) + IE. Geordie is a term that has come come to denote two things:
1. A native of Tyneside
2. A supporter of Newcastle United (the noted pigeon crap of the North East).
The latter of these two has created a change to the traditional Geordie song, Blaydon Races. The new version is as follows:
Oh, me lads! You shoulda seem 'em gannin,
Dyre and co., havin a god - all the toon git bangin,
Thor was lots o' lads 'n' lasses there,
Fanies was git aching!
We divvn't need the Champion's - we'd rather gan out rapin!
Geordies are give a bad name by Newcastle United.
The mackems beat the Geordies.
