Prayer For The Reds

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’ve no money no riches of diamonds or gold
But I’ve the crown jewels with a St Michael goal
I’ve no fancy titles I don’t stand out from the crowd
But I’m a Scouser a kopite and that makes me proud

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There’s millions more like like me who cheer for the reds
Anfielders each one from our toes to our heads
Every other Saturday we’ve got a full house
Our language unites us that language is Scouse

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Walking back from Anfield down onto Queen’s Drive
We’ve no money for buses so we hitch for a ride
If we’re lucky they’ll stop no need to ask “Where you from?”
Otherwise we’ll be walking and singing our songs

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We’ve spent all our money on banners and pins
Our prayers remain constant, “Dear God a Reds win”
And in the silence of dreaming the wishes that bloom
We pray we’ll be blessed with our 19th title soon.
