Why did you do it?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Why did you do it,
Why did you lie?
You started a story,
That still will not die.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 You opened the gate,
The one marked with C,
It’s purpose for exit,
Not thousand’s entry.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Had you directed us safely,
With your duty of care,
96 would still live on,
Replace pain – despair.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Why did you do it,
When the ref came to hear,
Why say we broke in,
Was it because of your fear?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Did you think that your job,
Was in jeopardy,
When you knew we we’re dying,
You stood lying evilly.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 You couldn’t be guilty,
You’re South Yorkshire Police,
Did you think we’re just Scousers,
Getting under your feet?

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 We were helping our family,
We were helping our mates,
While you stood up there lying,’
Bout us breaking down gates.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 What the sun wrote was evil,
But they got most from you,
You have sullied the name,
Of the great Liverpool.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Judgement day’s coming,
It’s not in your head,
For waiting in heaven,
Are 96’ Reds,

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 They all want to ask you,
They all want to know,
How did you live on,
With all that you know.

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 You should have been sentenced,
For April 15th,
And forever we will fight,
For our right – our justice.

Dedicated to the 96′ men, women and children who lost their lives at Hillsborough, on the 15th April 1989. The fight for justice goes on.
