Heaven Rejoiced As Parkhead Erupted

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The city of Glasgow woke up this morning
Hoping that the sun would be bright and blazing,
As the Champions League had returned once more
When AC Milan entered last night, through Parkhead’s door.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Along the Gallowgate, the singing would start
With Parkhead’s floodlights, a beacon in the dark.
And 60,000 supporters sang from their souls
As they eagerly awaited for a Celtic goal.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And as Parkhead sits within heaven’s sight,
Both teams were greeted by a sea of green & white.
How the Rossoneri were baptized by Glasgow’s eternal rain
That drowned their spirit; refreshed Celtic’s game.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Stephen McManus, captain of the green, white and gold,
Got Parkhead celebrating with his first Champions League goal.
A Paul Hartley cross, so accurate, that it soared
Over the defence of Milan for McManus to score.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 One minute from time, a miracle we witnessed,
Heaven rejoiced as Parkhead erupted,
For wee Scott McDonald was quick off the mark
To score from a rebound that Dida could not grab.
