Strawberry Fields and Walrus dreams

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Strawberry Fields and Walrus dreams
And Shankly spoke of Billy Dean
And Dalglish reigned our Anfield King
And life was sweet, or so it seemed…

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Christ we know that troubles breed
But seeds of love must yet redeem
And bring us home to set us free,
Sir Billy Liddell stole the scene

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And played the ball from every wing
And Barnes he knew the dignity
Pass and move the endless rhythm
Of that crystal reddened sea

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Bob Paisley quiet he didn’t boast
(is his Knighthood still lost in the post?)
Liverpool 8 exploded into fire
But colours merged not black v white

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The papers should learn to read then write
The Echo marched with reds to Rome
The ferries packed the trains are broke
The silence thick then til someone spoke

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 He sounded like my Father’s Ghost
Lennon’s words I read the most
And Lydons verbs I trusted too
He prowled the streets of me and you.
