A Liverpool Man

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A day in heaven with a Liverpool man
A Scouser born and life long fan
And he smiles as he recalls the Anfield night
When Shankly’s boys put to the sword Hererra’s pride

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And he speaks of Yeats and Cally and Ian St John
When the Kop sang “Ee Aye Addio We’ve Won The Cup!”
God whispers to Billy Liddell “Lace your boots up son
Bobby Murdoch’s busy pullin’ his hooped shirt son!”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A day in heaven with a Liverpool man
A Scouser born and devoted fan
Wrapped up warm in his auld red scarf
Cheering for the reds on the Anfield park

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And he chats to Bob Paisley, conqueror of Rome
Then shares a laugh and smoke with Uncle Joe
They talk of the future and Rafa’s new team
And purr with pride at the Kopite lad Stevie G

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 A day in heaven with a Liverpool man
A Scouser born and faithful fan
Magicians he witnessed with the ball at their feet
But he said none could compare to the magic of Dalglish

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The light shone down from the Anfield stars
But it couldn’t match the light of Aldo and Barnes
And we walk on together down the Walton Breck Road
As the angels join in with “You’ll Never Walk Alone”

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 One day in heaven with a Liverpool man
A Scouser born, a lifelong fan
There’s a 7 year old child no longer sad
For she’s one day in heaven with her Liverpool Dad.
