1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 If you go down to Highbury today
You’re in for a big surprise
If you go down to Highbury today
You’d better go in disguise
For every Gooner that there was
Will gather there for certain cos
Today’s the day the Gooners will have you for dinner!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Every Gooner who’s been good
Is sure of a treat today.
There’s lots of marvellous things to see
When Henry comes out to play

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 With flicks and tricks too quick to see
They’ll take free kicks as long as they please
‘Cause that’s the way the Gooners will have you for dinner!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 If you go down to Highbury today
You’d better not go alone
It’s lovely down in Highbury today
But safer to stay at home
For every Gooner that ever was
Will gather there for certain because
Today’s the day the Gooners will have you for dinner!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Picnic time for Gooners
The little Gooners are having a lovely time today.
Watch them, catch teams unawares,
And see them blow the rest away!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 See Pires gaily gad about
Paddy V will pass and shout
Reyes and Freddie play without a care

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 At 5.oo pm their Mummies and Daddies
Will take them home to bed,
Because they’re tired little Gooners!
