King of the Kop

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s true, so it seems, he was nobody’s fool,
And he rattled opponents’ nerves
“There’s only two teams in Liverpool;
Liverpool and Liverpool Reserves”.
He talked frankly
He aimed for the top
Bill Shankly
King of the Kop

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 His cryptic quips made you hold your breath
Whenever he stopped for a chat.
“Football’s not a matter of life and death.
It’s far more important than that”.
He talked frankly
He aimed for the top
Bill Shankly
King of the Kop

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 “Of all your hopes you’d be bereft
If Jesus returned today”.
“ I’d move St John to inside left
And give him room to play”.
He talked frankly
He aimed for the top
Bill Shankly
King of the Kop
