United Road

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 United Road

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Of all the world’s greatest football clubs
Manchester United stands out from the rest.
Their supporters can be found from every church to every pub,

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And they’ve hosted all the greats, like Cantona and Best.
Old Trafford hosts these legends; they call it “Theatre of Dreams,”
This is where dreams are born and lived, and the red shirt falls majestically on every dreamer’s chest.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 None will be so sorely missed as skipper, Roy Keane.
Every match day reverberating through Old Trafford is, “There’s only one Keano, there’s only one Keano.”
The Spurs hate him, the Magpies fear him, the Gunners envy him, and to all the scousers he is a fiend.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The Red Devils’ striker trinity is Van Nistelrooy, Rooney, and Ronaldo.
Their flank play is delivered by Johnny O’Shea,
And in the back, keeper Van Der Sar denies even the best attempts on goal.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Man U, you are my livelihood, I’ll be part of the Stretford End one day,
Or perhaps I’ll be in the President’s Box when I am married to Gerard Piqué!
