Cheering locals with me Dad

Got the fever, diehard fan
Third Division- hear the moans

Set ’em free and see them fly
Goals galore and endless thrills

Dying dreams, impending doom
Bright young lads dispel those cares

Time to hope and time for cheer
Optimism now I feel

Shed the tears, worn the smiles
Shook me ‘ead, then wonder, praise
Times I’ve had on BORO DAYS.
