To the Tune of Jerusalem
And did Tom’s feet in ancient time
Dazzle on Deepdale’s hallowed turf.
And is the holy lamb of god
Found on those perfect pure white shirts.
And does his countenance divine
gaze down from the Tom Finney stand.
And has it ever been in doubt
That we’re the best team in the land.
Bring me the class of Jonny Mack
Bring me Sean Gregan’s strength and fire.
Bring me McKenna’s midfield drive
Bring me a goal at last from Meijer.
I will not crease, my Baxi top,
Bjarki* will never wash his hair
Till we are in the Premiership
A league we’ll grace with style and flair.
