A Liverbird’s Eye view of Anfield

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This is Anfield, this is home,
This is where I like to roam.
I live amongst the seats so red,
And this is where I lay my head.
I walk upon the hallowed turf,
Where many men have shown their worth.
Dalglish, Keegan, Hunt, Barnes and St John,
Kennedy, Redknapp, the list goes on.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I was here when Heighway graced our wing,
When the mighty kop would roar and sign.
Shanks said that they would frighten the ball,
Sucking it into the net with their call.
I was here when we reached dizzy heights,
And hosted glorious Euro nights.
When the ball without a break would flow
And teams left in tears, their hearts full of woe.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I saw Liddell run right down the pitch,
Then bang in goals without a hitch.
I’ve seen eighteen league titles fought for and won,
We hold the record, it’s equalled by none.
Seven League Cups, and the FA Cup six,
When we fell to div 2, Shankly did fix.
I was here when Fowler scored goals galore,
And Rushie, well he scored even more!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And although the team has somewhat altered,
My total support has never faltered.
In my heart the reds will always rule,
With Owen, Gerrard, Baros and Kewell.
I’ll love them till my dying day,
And never will I fly away.
So whether we be first, tenth or third,
Support with me, I’m the Liverbird.
