2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Favourites for the drop,
Caught them on the hop.
Bolton Wanderers is the name;
We know how to play the premier game
Playing fancy clubs with fancy names.
To the trotters it’s all the same.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Our winning formation 3-5-1
Got us promoted from Div 1
We have taken our third scalp in a row
Our premier class is beginning to show.
Big money we haven’t spent
The Bolton team is heaven sent.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Leicester 5-0 win away,
That certainly made Taylor’s day!
A solid win against the boro,
A fine performance, it was thorough.
To the Reebok, Liverpool did come,
Bolton sent them home feeling glum.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Now will the critics please take note?
We’ve rammed your comments down your throats.
Perhaps you forgot we had Big Sam.
No team in the premier have a better man.
Bolton Wanderer’s are here to stay;
We might still be top come next may!
