On a Saturday afternoon
We would make our way to Celtic Park,
Where we would stand and cheer the Bhoys in green
While waving Celtic and Ireland’s flag.
The songs of Glasgow Celtic,
They would flow from every fan
As the Hoops have been worn, since we were born,
From every boy and man.
We have heard of Patsy Gallagher
And the skills that he possessed,
The goals from Jimmy McGrory,
We would swear that he was blessed.
Neil Mochan and Sean Fallon,
They both wore the Hoops with pride
And Tommy Burns and Peter Grant
Were devout to the green & white.
And when we meet our Maker,
When we pass through the Pearly Gates,
We will sing of the Glasgow Celtic
And put a scarf around his neck.
We will shake the hands of Thomson and Doyle,
Jimmy Quinn and big Jock Stein,
And with Brother Walfrid, we will talk forever,
About the Bhoys in emerald green.
