A Red Dream

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A team made in heaven of Princes and Kings
There’s Aldo and Rushie and Kenny Dalglish
Alec Lindsay at left back threads passes to Kev
Whilst Heighway’s an angel wearing the red

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There’s Lawler and Hall and Big Ron bless my soul
Sir Roger Hunt chases and then scores a goal
Herrera still sobbin’ for Shanks told his boys
“You aint heard nothing til you hear the Anfield Noise”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Jimmy Case firing cannons that wake up the dead
“Keep that bloody noise down!” the ghost of Billy Dean said
Emlyn he’s smiling and the Euro Cup he holds high
Whilst the Angels look down and applaud Bob’s great side

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Our first FA Cup win was for Leeds a lesson to learn
And if you want to know more just ask Milne and Byrne
Ian Cally determined he won’t let us down
Joey Jones in a top hat for a Roman Crown

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 John Barnes he was something his skills truly peerless
Whilst Souey was hard as they come totally fearless
Jan Molby filled his shirt with passion for the reds
And Robbie scored goals like fishes and bread!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 For penalties converted step up Phil Neal
And for guarding the goal Clem’s all we need
And if you want a song then the Kopites will sing
Sweet as God’s angels, 12th man on the team.

Notes

“I was born by the banks of the Mersey
Facin’ the Irish Sea
It might not look like heaven to you
But its home sweet home to me”
