Wishing for their old Mum.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Why didn’t they help us,
Despite all our cries,
It was obvious to all,
We can’t breathe ere’
We’re dyin’

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Some right at the front,
Who escaped through the gate,
Were forced right back in,
To meet with their fate.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They were crushed close together,
In the warmth of the sun,
With their eyes turned to heaven,
Wishing for their old Mum.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Saying bye bye sweet Anfield,
King Kenny and Rush,
Adios Peter Beardsley,
You gave us so much.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 With a song in their soul,
And a bird on their chest,
96 bodies were laid down to rest.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But who was to blame,
On that warm sunny day,
Please tell me now,
The sights won’t go away.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Why did they fail to,
Deliver the care,
And why did they lie to,
All that was there.

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 We didn’t cause Hillsborough,
As well they all knew,
But they covered their arses,
As Coppers will do.

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 They said we were rowdy,
And broke in through that gate,
When HE gave the order,
To open it late.

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 So why is he out there,
Playing golf with his mates,
When 96 reds,
Were consigned to their fate

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 When you close up your eyes,
At the end of the day,
Say a few words, yes that’s it,
We’ll pray.

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 For although it seems crazy,
And beggars belief,
The law in this country,
Won’t give us justice.
