We’re Rob Martinez’ Army,
Throughout the Land well-known.
Our Faith is granite, adamant,
About that make no bones.
A Football Club, no brand, are we,
Worldwide is our renown –
On bark of trees across the globe
Engraved our name is found.
Our Stadium is Goodison,
Sweet Home with none to share,
And any thought of moving out
We find too hard to bear.
“Nil Satis Nisi Optimum!”
We bawl with pride-puffed chests.
(Though sadly this proud motto’s
No longer on our Crest).
We’ve little time for Tottenham,
We can’t abide Man U,
Nor either Club in Nottingham,
Or other teams in Blue.
We’re Marti’s Blueclad Peltasts,
From the murky Mersey’s shores,
And if you can’t decide who to support,
Come join us, climb aboard!
Denys E. W. Jones
