1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A plot of land that served them well.
But now LFC have decided to sell.
A training ground for many a year.
But an Academy move now is near.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Melwood walls got a lot higher.
With added twists of barbed wire.
With holes filled in, kept eyes away.
Innocent photographers kept at bay.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No sitting on walls, or on Dads back.
To get a glimpse of defence or attack.
Now prison like security, no real need.
Just ‘them and us’ another dirty deed.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And when the reds are Kirby bound.
What’ll become of this old ground?
Donate it to the locals, an LFC treat!
For once let money take a back seat.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Give the kids a park, a football theme.
But that idea was just my pipe dream.
As the club aren’t short of a bob or two.
But they sold the land for houses new.
