Seven

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It was April nineteen eighty nine
We were young and everything was fine
Glass of champers, fit to toast
But Daveys shot came off the post

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The next week came, contest resumed
From the start our quest was doomed
Felix scored, it all went wrong
At least he didn’t sing a song

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 More misery came in ninety two
Dave Tilson bid our dreams adieu
Landsdowne Road our private hell
Got soaking wet that day as well

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Exactly 6 years on from then
Another bid for glory, when
Davey led our merry men
A 0-0 draw, we’ll go again

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 6 days later and we hardcore
Our 5th cup final and yet to score
15 minutes from full time
Big Derek put us on cloud nine

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 7 more years would pass until
Another final we’d fulfill
Going for a worthy double
Drogheda came and burst our bubble

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 So now we’re onto number seven
Blood and guts, one to eleven
Longford Town, we’ll climb that mountain
Please God we’ll end up in the fountain
