Captain Klopp

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Ladies and Gentlemen   welcome aboard   I’m your captain for this flight
We are on a journey to Madrid  a 6th European Cup in sight
I hope you like our uniform   it’s a pretty all Red costume
My name is Captain Jurgen Klopp and I go Boom Boom Boom
My crew are full of legends who have lifted The European Cup before
At the front is Stevie Gerrard number 8 he wore
In the middle is Graeme Sounes hard as nails and more
He held The European Cup aloft in 1984
Beside him is Phil Thompson who lifted it in 81
When Liverpool beat Real Madrid  Alan Kennedy what a run
At the back is Emlyn Hughes  a legend  a Liverpool great
Who lifted The European Cup twice in 1977 and 78
This is Captain Klopp speaking we’ve touched down in sunny Spain
We are going to lift number 6 and make up for last year’s pain
The fans they start to disembark   thoughts turning to the big game
Klopp’s got one thing on his mind   to beat Spurs his only aim
The captain changes his blazer to his tracksuit and his cap
The Liverbird upon his chest   his passion we have to clap
The game now it has started we score really early on
A penalty from Mo Salah the Egyptian King  a new Liverpool son
Its not the best of finals   Spurs giving as good as they get
Some brilliant saves from Allison keeping the ball out from our net
1-0 the scoreline it would stay until the 87th minute of the game
When up stepped Divock Origi to enter Liverpool’s hall of fame
The Belgian made the score 2-0 the European Cup was coming home
All you could hear around the ground was You’ll Never Walk Alone
Captain Klopp had done it   Number 6 for me and you
And Jordan Henderson took his place in Captain Klopps elite crew
