The Ballad of Ged & Thommo

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Standin’ on The Kop End at Anfield
Waitin’ for the game to begin
When the boys start to play
In The Liverpool Way
We’ll be roarin’ on our redmen to win
Christ you know it ain’t easy
But we’ve got Stevie G
With a fit Michael Owen
We’ll make the Champions League

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Baros grabs his boots and he’s flyin’
Harry spreads his wings and he scores
Dioufy with pace
Always finds himself space
Heskey picks his dreams off the floor
Christ you know it ain’t easy
But we’ve got Stevie G
With a fit Michael Owen
We’ll make the Champions League

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 All the way to Paris from Anfield
Cardiff and there’s Wembley and Rome
Rush and Dalglish with their wonderful feet
God’s Angels sang
“You’ll Never Walk Alone”
Christ you know it ain’t easy
But we’ve got Stevie G
With a fit Michael Owen
We’ll make the Champions League

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Last night our Ged said:
“Thommo it’s not dead
Our season isn’t over until May” (think)

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Caught up in a dream of ‘77
Nearly 30 thousand Kopites they go
The newspapers said
“Joey Jones in the red
He’s munchen on the gladbach you know”
Christ you know it ain’t easy
But we’ve got Stevie G
With a fit Michael Owen
We’ll make the Champions League

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Dancin’ in the town after Dortmund
European glory like Rome
Seventeen years
Of frustration and tears
It’s good to have the UEFA Cup home
Christ you know it ain’t easy
But we’ve got Stevie G
With a fit Michael Owen
We’ll make the Champions League
With a fit Michael Owen
We’ll make the Champions League.
