The Monkey

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We hadn’t won at Anfield
Since nineteen ninety-nine.
And slice it how you like,
That is a very long long time.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But now at last we’ve done it,
The monkey’s off our back.
The hoodoo has been laid to rest,
And Klopp must watch his back.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Richarlison was on the mark
With just three minutes gone.
The Reds were stung, they hogged the ball,
And piled the pressure on.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The second half was agony,
Nerve-racking, very tense.
Shots peppered left, right, centre,
But Pickford was immense.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 About ten minutes still to play,
When DCL was floored.
The Ref he pointed to the Spot,
Our Iceman duly scored.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 We’ve shook the monkey off our back,
The hoodoo’s put to bed.
Today all Merseyside is Blue,
There’s not a trace of Red.
