Remember a Day

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Remember a day when you got out of bed
It was City at home not a thought in your head
Saturday morning it’s bacon and toast
Meet at the station and gan down the coast

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Empty compartment hey let’s kick the ball
Gosforth and Backworth Monkseaton and all
Tide’s out so knock it around on the sand
It’s just paradise California land

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Force 6 from off the North Sea scours your face
Wildly fart-arsing in acres of space
Ee man can we play have you got any fags?
It’s Maureen and Nancy the Whitley Bay slags

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Why is it these birds always go round in two’s
It’s so one can declare “ee my friend fancies you’s”
Though Billy-boy’d find them a couple of bores
[Man Nancy’s aal reet but I don’t fancy yours]

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Around about one-ish it’s time to get back
The train’s in the station and clickety-clack
Trundle through Manors and over the points
Half an hour’s drink-up at one of those joints

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Off to the ground in a strong cavalcade
Tall ones and small ones and no one afraid
Backs of the jackets and feet on the move
This is the big one there’s something to prove

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Up concrete stairways and over the lip
Sound swells around you now you’re in its grip
United! United! the terraces sway
With 55,000 remember this day!


“this day” was 16th August 1969
