Dazzle on Deepdale’s hallowed turf.

Found on those perfect pure white shirts.

gaze down from the Tom Finney stand.
And has it ever been in doubt
That we’re the best team in the land.

Bring me Sean Gregan’s strength and fire.
Bring me McKenna’s midfield drive
Bring me a goal at last from Meijer.

Bjarki* will never wash his hair
Till we are in the Premiership
A league we’ll grace with style and flair.
