And a Celtic Song Was Sung

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In the year of 1967
When the European Cup was won,
My father danced down Maryhill Road
And a Celtic song was sung.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When he took a trip to Parkhead
To watch Celtic’s playing sons,
He would stand within the famous Jungle
And a Celtic song was sung.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 When he came home from the Firhill Tavern
With a carry-out in his hand,
We would hear him climb the tenament steps
Were a Celtic song was sung.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 When we stood together at Paradise
Over Real Madrid, the Celts had won,
We travelled home full of joy,
Were a Celtic song was sung.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And still this day, I watch the Celtic play
And it is a wondrous thing,
For far above Parkhead’s sky
I can still hear my father sing.
