For the boys of Liverpool

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 From the cold grey skies of the Mersey
To the gold Athenean hues
A red sea carries dreams and hopes
For the boys of Liverpool

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Where dreams will be for living
And the passion comes to call
The banners fill the sky with red
When Stevie strokes the ball

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Songs will be composed for sure
And memories made complete
We’ll raise a jar and toast the names
From pubs down every street

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Robbie he may score the goal
That brings auld big ears home
And Xabi thread a pass so sure
A king upon his throne

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Whilst Carra gives his Dad a hug
And races to the Kop
Momo’s boss and Bolo’s sure
Our name is on the cup

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Finnan like a ghost to steal
While JAR he strikes
A thunderbolt with that left foot
To set the pitch alight

Recalled in songs of lore
Of how we tamed Maldini’s men
To change that half time score

And keep the nerves at bay
Remember “You are Liverpool”
And preach the ‘Liverpool Way’

In Heaven’s Terrace stand
With 96 reds who share with them
The best view in the land

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 From the cold grey skies of the Mersey
To the gold Athenean hues
A red sea carries dreams and hopes
For the boys of Liverpool.
