North End Hero
God bless that bald head
And the beautiful goals against the “O’s”
The Darlington strikes
And the frosty Hartlepool nights
What gracious sight
Of Sav in full flight
Taking the lilywhites
All the way to the top
Such dizzy heights
One more coffin
To our delight….


Reference to the coffin- The North End fans have a ceremony whereby they raise a coffin out of the ground everytime the lilywhites win promotion, the coffins represent their fall from footballing grace, and they actual did bury a coffin whenever the club was relegated.
