Records from the past
playing on the radio
sending you back in time.
The Stones getting no satisfaction
the Who talking about their generation
and The Beatles in a Yellow Submarine.
Us kids with our Sky Blue rattles,
clicking them to the tunes on the tannoy
great fun before the teams came out.
Records remind you of where you were
good and bad times come flooding back,
that one was around in our relegation season.
Others bring a smile to your face,
when that one came on, it took me
back to the season we won the Cup.
The masses on the Liverpool Kop
singing “You’ll Never Walk Alone”
us away fans looking on in awe.
Football and music go hand in hand
every club likes to take a pop song,
and put in their own words.
Music brings the supporters together
players like to listen to it before a game,
football stadiums are venues for concerts.
You hear songs being sung in the bars,
before and after the games,
in and around every ground in the country.
But the best sounds come from the terraces,
the greatest choirs can be found there
football fans can really sing a tune.
So yes, music and football do go together
just listen in at the next match you attend,
but it’s even better if you sing along as well !
