Those Special Anfield Nights (Yeah Right)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I wish I had a Euro I wish I had a pound
for ev”ry pundit banging on about that ‘magic ground’
I wish I had a chocolate bar – a gateaux or a latté
for ev’ry player telling us it’s ‘one big Anfield party’

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 If i want vibes there’s Glastonb’ry and if I crave emotion
I’ll watch ‘This Morning’ all day long or dive into the ocean
We’ll always be the ones they loathe til time and time is done
We swapped Hugh Grant for Avram we lost our special one

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 and you with all your ‘ history’ your Beatle city glory
but come the semi final night expect a different story
when all the ghosts of days gone past amass in red and white
to sing upon another ‘extra special Anfield night’

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 the only thing that you can claim the only thing I see
is yet another season of mediocrity
with Rafa’s lovely goatee beard the jewel and highlight
it might be all you sing upon that ‘special Anfield night’

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 at Stamford Bridge it’s different – it’s never quite that hot
we’ve got the flags and restaurants and that’s about your lot
the atmosphere’s always the same – there’s oxygen and argon
with nitrogen and water vapour not forgetting carbon

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 we know how much they hate us – we always find it funny
it’s Ringo and the Mersey…. or Avram and the money?
we quietly chip away somehow we’re London though and through
we’re carefree and we wind them up ‘cos we’re the boys in blue

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 I wish I had a golden shed I wish I had a ceiling
for ev”ry pundit banging on about ‘that magic feeling
I wish I had a city with just one club in sight
for ev’ry time they mention those ‘special Anfield nights’

apologies if I am winding up a few Liverpool fans and poets here …judging by the mail! What can I say….we’ve become the Millwall of the Noughties..it’s like no other club has ever thrown money around , whatever its source before..I wrote this after getting home about 2am from the Fenerbarhce game at the Bridge with my mate Rik..and listening to all the endless “magic of those special European Anfield nights”…blah blah blah….
