Here We Go, Boys

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 No stars shine forth, the clouds are low,
The moon is nowhere to be seen.
The crowd has nowhere else to go,
But fidgets, fidgets on the green.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Binoculars peruse the skies,
Necks craned back in contemplation,
But only blackness meets their eyes,
Heightening their trepidation.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Then suddenly a single light
Illuminates the empty sky,
Exploding loudly in the night,
Drawing the observer’s eye.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Then a second, then a third,
Show’ring brightness o’er the land.
Acclamations can be heard,
Paradise is now at hand.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Reds and blues and whites and greens,
Light the firmament with glee,
Provoking many happy scenes
For the watching devotee.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 At last! The long awaited show
Sings its marvellous refrain –
Here we go, boys, here we go,
The Eircom League is back again.
