The FAmous Cup

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Men in rosettes leapt up from their seat
Peacocks pounded by a loud Mersey Beat
Liverpool danced to the sixties’ swing
With Hunt, St. John and Shankly, the king

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Keegan and Heighway, stroll in the park
Magpies bowed to the song of the lark
A resounding victory, the promise kept
At St. George’s Hall, grown men wept

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Wembley besieged by the accents so rare
The onslaught followed a Lineker scare
Red mist descended, Blues deep in trouble
Rush and Johnston sealed a great “Double”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Together again and fate’s name on the cup
A city on it’s knees tried hard to stand up
Aldridge and Rush plundered the goals
In memory of those dear departed souls

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Toothless underdogs, men from the Wear
No match for The Reds in centenary year
Souness recovered, Moran’s face beamed
Rush once more and Thomas redeemed

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Gunners silenced down in deepest Wales
Another page for the book of glorious tales
A victory plucked from the jaws of defeat
An old ghost chased by Owen’s magic feet

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 The Hammers gave their all, up for a fight
In scenes reminiscent of that greatest night
Cisse, Gerrard, then Reina turned the tide
Pretty bubbles, like dreams, faded and died



Liverpool make it seven F.A. Cup wins.
