1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Red Sea rose from Liverpool and it forged a path of gold
Byzantium saluted and the Romans from their sleep they rose
The Kop marched in their thousands pounding dreams in their hearts
And they walked on together This Red Sea will never part

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A new hope was dawning with songs and a prayer
Cos every redman dreams to say “I WAS THERE!”
The LiverBirds flew down and joined with the crowd
With their perch on the chests of the kopites so proud

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The red flags and banners they filled up the skies
And the tributes were flying from every side
Oh yer heart would be stone if it turned from all this
A stage set for Shakespeare? Na Carra no less

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 AC Milan in the white came out smart
And they bossed us around all over the park
The words of me Father I struggled to hear
“We’re the famous Red Army, and we belong here”

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The game barely starts and we’re a Maldini goal down
And with Crespo’s 2 daggers they’ll be wearing the crown
Milan plunged a knife in the proud redmens heart
But the scene sets to change come the second half

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 For the Kop isn’t beaten and wears the number 12 shirt
And their lungs opened up and ready to burst
The 96 fallen rise up with Bill Bob and Joe
And with the Angels their screamin’ “YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE”

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Stevie our captain like lazarus he came
And his head like a boot kicked us back in the game
Then Vlad puts us 2 and the dreams back alive
And when Xabi brought us level I knew I’d seen Christ

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 We’d done Chelsea and Juve all put to the sword
We’re the MIGHTY RED ARMY with passion we roared
We’ve seen the worst and the best and we never lost faith
And I thank God above we’re Kings of Europe again

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 The ghosts gathered closer all holding their breath
As the reds they fought on, Milan’s dreams close to death
And I thought of me Dad in the kop up in paradise
And knew he was watchin’ and was close to me that night

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 3 times we were down and 3 times we came back
The muscles were torn by the end of this epic match
Napoleon looked down at this red army and smiled
Said “I’d never have lost with them in my side!”

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 It’s all down to penalties and Dudek he saves
Like a priest healing demons like windmills he waves
The Reds KINGS OF EUROPE the red sea draws near

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 By Christ we were beaten by Christ we fought on
With a will forged with iron and boots ‘ard as bronze
“Arl Big Ears” was homesick was tired and alone
But 4 sisters were waiting back in it’s Liverpool home!


barely sunk in yet!!!

“DER DER DER DER DER DER DER DER DER DER DER” – the beginning to RING OF FIRE- Johnny Cash (its afavourite in the kop and the redmen sang it as they celebrated with the 12th man 25th may 2005!) 😉
