The Landsdowne Roar

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We start on the train and follow the crowd
Down streets and lanes ‘ touts shouting aloud
The atmosphere’s crazy, the buzz is unreal
The flags are a-waving, its starting to wheel

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We slip through the gates a programme we get
Straight to the jacks we’d never forget
Hey where’s your tickets? a steward would shout
“In our back pockets” with burger in mouth…

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 As we enter the crowds next to pitch
The anthem starts playing we can’t see a stitch
As the song nearly ends, we can’t take no more
Silence soon follows the Landsdowne Roar.
