Romantics Rebels & Redmen

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 With their legs shot to pieces
And turning to stone
They picked up our dreams
Now they won’t walk alone
From the terrace our passion
Burst forth from each heart
And it fired up our warriors
On that Atatürk park

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We were joined by the ghosts
Of our glorious past
And Rafa he gave them
A tale that will last
The legends of Wembley
And Paris and Rome
Give thanks to the ‘Bul Lads
And welcomed them home

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Shevchenko a star yes
But turning to rust
He’s still chokin’ up mountains
Of Carra’s red dust
Stevie raw power
Of muscle and blood
He knew how we felt
He’d give all that he could

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And he screamed like a madman
When his header went in
Could he see he was joined
By the ghost of our Em?
Then Vlad saw some writing
His name on the wall
He bid us farewell
With his wonderful goal

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Our Xabi Alonso
The world at his feet
Spreadin passes like wisdom
The mighty red sea
Our prayers they were answered
Benediction at last
For the faith in our legend
Our illustrious past

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Kop roared with passion
Like never before
With the breath of the Angels
Unearthly for sure
The Red Army marches
With heroes whose songs
Sing of wondrous victories
And this night was one

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Now Klopp gives’ it biftas
Aye he’s proper boss
Gives the reds a new swagger
Like Shankly our Scot.
