A LIVERPOOL HERO (working class hero-john lennon)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As soon as you’re born they give you a ball
And you race on the pitch before you can walk
As you’re raised on the stories of Heighway and Hall
A Liverpool hero is something to be
A Liverpool hero is something to be

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You practice at home and you day dream at school
And you pray that you’ll pull on the red of the ‘pool
So you copy Dalglish til you can turn like him too
A Liverpool hero is something to be
A Liverpool hero is something to be

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You stand on the kop with your Dad and your friends
And you sing all the songs as you cheer on the reds
And you hope that some day you’ll be down there with them
A Liverpool hero is something to be
A Liverpool hero is something to be

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 You pull on the shirt and you think of the names
The great Anfield nights and the grand Anfield days
And you dream that the Kopites will one day sing your name
A Liverpool hero is something to be
A Liverpool hero is something to be

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 You faith is a passion more precious than gold
And for 30 odd years Anfield’s been your home
The Reds are forever and none walk alone
A Liverpool hero is something to be
A Liverpool hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero just watch Stevie G.
