Come back Reds

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Come back the reds who served us well
Come back the brave whose deeds we tell
Come back Lawler the silent knight
Come back The Mac and bring your light
Come back “Bionic Carrot” save us again
Just like you did against St Etienne
Come back Jocky and bring the days
When we was fab home and away

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Come back Kenny still your crown
Awaits a head as blessed as proud
Come back Rushie bring your goals
Heighway’s crosses Shankly’s soul
And Toshack too your shadow gleams
With better days and better dreams
Come back Joey skin and bone
Racin’ glory there in Rome

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Come back Smithy all would fear
And take you on? None would dare
Come back Billy Liddellpool
Man of honour, still so few
Come back you reds once more we sing
Barney Rubble and Phil Neal
Come back Razor Kennedy
I’d love to see you pass to Stevie G

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And Jimmy Case Christ knows we need
The iron boots the nerves of steel
Come back Rowdy we could do
With that huge body built for two
Come back Digger claim the wings
Whilst Cally’s boots our glory bring
Come back our sons come back the Kop
Come back the times that had to stop

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Come back king Kev we’d just love
To see at the helm a favourite son
Come back Jari your leaving a sin
The Anfield sky craves its Flying Finn
Come back Aldo your boots are here
Come back Quasi give us something to cheer
Come back the lads who ruled the roost
Built Fortress Anfield around their boots

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Of battles won sweet victories
Come back the Father I long to see
Come back Sir Roger ‘neath floodlight
For Anfield needs her greatest night
Come back The Skunk Come The Saint
Come back The Kem come back me mates
Come back Bill, Bob and Joe
God’s had you 3 long enough y’know.
