What We Do

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Through the dark,
through the storm,
through the wind and rain,

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 the forty thousand gathered here,
the millions on their home terrain;
players, staff, supporters help
the Families through their Sheffield pain.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 What we do
is what we’ve done
and what we’ll do again:

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 raise our voices in the wind,
praise our lost ones through the rain,
amaze the world with this campaign
through those decades of disdain.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We have a team. We are a team:
our silver song will see us through,
along with all our brothers blue,
our city will renew anew.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 What we do is what we’ve done,
our captain said it plain –
we fall, we hurt, we take the knocks
the lies, the jibes, the pain.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Listen!
Listen!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 This is gone.
We fight for truth,
exactly the same.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 We go again!

Inspired by Steven Gerrard’s rallying call after the Man City game.
