Bill Shankly’s Boys

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’re going down to Anfield boys
We’re off to see the Reds
So wrap up in your scarfs and flags
We’ll meet you down the Breck
And when they see us coming
There’ll be a welcome at the door
For we’re off to see Bill Shankly’s Boys
And we’ll cheer each time they score!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We’ll be with those from Bootle Docks
From Dingle and the Pier
And Reds who live across the sea
Will be wishing they were here
From Kirkby o’er to Birkenhead
There’ll be 50,000 more
For we’re off to see Bill Shankly’s Boys
Where you’ll hear the Kopites roar!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 There’ll be Lawler, Hunt and Ian St John
There’s Yeats a giant for sure
Cally, Byrne and Gordon Milne
And Smithy Anfield born
Their names emblazoned in our hearts
Until our dying day
And each of us is Anfield bound
For here the Redmen play!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We’re going down to Anfield boys
We’re off to see the Reds
So wrap up in your scarfs and flags
We’ll meet you down the Breck
And when they see us coming
There’ll be a welcome at the door
For we’re off to see Bill Shankly’s Boys
And we’ll cheer each time they score!
