1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Gorden Strachan inherited a team, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
This team’s the defence was like a sieve, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
With a goal conceded here, a goal there, a goal conceded everywhere
Gorden Strachan inherited a team, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 This team’s strikers could not score, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
They missed chances at Home, and chances Away, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
With a miss here, a miss there and a miss everywhere
Strachan’s team showed no improvement, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Strachan did his best, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
Tried young players, bought some on loan, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
Still the goals leaked in and strikers missed, here, there and everywhere
Strachan’s team could not win or draw, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 To install steel in defence and sparkle in striker force, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
Strachan turned to the land of his fathers, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
To strengthen the team, here, there and everywhere
Every school boy knows of the Celtic warriors, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Tough men with unkempt hair and face painted blue, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
They could not be kept out even Hadrian’s Wall, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
Even followed William Wallace to York, here, there and everywhere
They ran in terror from Wallace except the Princess of Wales
who loved him, some argue was with Mel Gibson, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
The soft foreign players who relied up flair
replaced with physical Scots, eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
“At last I have a decent team the battle for promotion is on,”
was Strachan’s war cry eee-yi-eee-yi-oh
