Sir Kenny Dalglish

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In the town of dear Glasgow
A baby was born
As a lad he put pictures
Of the ‘gers on the wall

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But the ‘tic they came calling
And granted the wish
To the parkhead faithful
The name of Dalglish

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The opposistion would stand there
Scratching their heads
For their ragged defenders marked him
Like their boots were all lead

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Then the call came from Anfield
For a new King to reign
And Sir Bob found the greatest
Of redmen who came

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The banners proclaimed
In Nineteen seventy seven
That famous legend
“Kenny’s From Heaven”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 He pulled off the hoops
Of the emerald green
And he found a new paradise
His home at Anfield

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 My sleepy heart pounded
With passion and joy
When I watched the great goals
From our Celtic Bhoy

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Oh the best years
When he wore the famous auld red
The Crown of our Anfield
Upon his proud head

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 He could twist he could turn
He could do anything
His timing immaculate
Was the ball on a string?

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 The grandest of men
Was there better than this
His goal against Chelsea
For our double in 86

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 We wept when he left us
And the tears they did stain
The grasses of Anfield
Like ribbons of rain

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 His like we have searched for
But the mould it was broke
As the 7’s since him
Have just been a joke

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Christ I lived for his football
And long sung his name
And I wish he’d come back
Cos we need him again

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 He left us with memories
Still sweet as the day
For Sir Kenny brought glory
The Liverpool Way.
