Old and New

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I think roar for goal is not all about Arsenal
it is quality of this goal and sense of joy
What makes Arsenal shirt different is not only pride
It is some musical quality of Highbury that lives today
Where is the 20 century now? Where are our songs?
Be deep thinker and Highbury thinker but come to terms
with tears for Highbury
Live as you must live in 21th century near
second home of last century:
Highbury

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But I’m still happy and I have two grounds in my
memory and in my vision
Every goal at Emirates is for the honour of Highbury
I forget my sorrow instantly and I celebrate what I call:
Goals at the New Emirates Stadium for the memory of old
But I recognize the simple need that life goes on
And I call new ground – the ultramodern astral Arsenal-

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And I add as always that any goal may come from nothing
But watching Arsenal throughout centuries is something
