The Gerrard Final

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Minute and fifty on the clock
Johnson smashes the Wembley post
Gerrard drives on Kenny’s flock
It’s time to banish that white suited ghost

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Battling Bluebirds go on the attack
Mason slots one past Pepe Reina
Liverbird shrieks and the Reds fight back
Through Skrtel the gritty campaigner

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Full time beckons an extra time fight
Heaton beaten by a knock Kuyt
Mackay’s men’s spirit never loses sight
Turner forcing a tense shoot out

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Stevie G misses, Adam into orbit
Cousins Gerrard they’re both well hard
Miller and Gestafe fail with the wit
And tears for Anthony Gerrard

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Ends a triumphant and memorable day
Gerry Marsden tops the cabaret
Liverpool don’t do finals, but hey
They’ll all be joyous on Wembley Way
