Keep that celery hidden
Blue boys will descend en masse
To top Northern town called Wigan

Send that trilby South
Northern soul will have to be on show
To keep Frank Lampard out

As a Dutch boy in his glory

For new kids on the block

Sod what they earn
As Blue Boys come to town

Fine champions those Blues!!!
