Brisbane Road

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This ain’t Upton Park, it’s Brisbane Road.
It ain’t White Hart Lane, that’s the wrong postcode.
It ain’t Stamford Bridge, this is E10,
And you’re gonna hear Rockin’ All Over The World again

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There’s flats in every corner of the ground.
You can get your kids in for just five pound.
Get an Orientear, it’s only a quid.
Get a cup of tea, but there ain’t no lids

We had John Sitton at his most irate.
We were Club For A Fiver, but we don’t care.
We had chequered shirts, we had Chris Tate’s hair.

I remember it’s Doug on the message board.
I remember the pleasure, I remember the pain,
And I wanna hear Rockin’ All Over The World again.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 So come on Orient, it’s half past four;
I’d stay ’til the end if I thought you’d score.
But I haven’t seen a goal in God knows when,
And I wanna hear Rockin’ All Over The World again.

They play Rockin’ All Over The World over the tannoy at the end of the match when Leyton Orient win at home.
