Song For Liverpool

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Watching on Saturday
Upon the Kop where the Liver Bird rests
From here she flies
Proud upon each Redman’s chest
Saw Smithy rise up to the sky
Saw Shankly build his greatest sides
Saw Aldo like a genie score
Saw Digger Barnes and begged for more
I stood down by The Mersey
And I sang a song for Liverpool

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Waiting for Saturday
Down to Anfield were the Redmen play
Oh time will pass
There Keegan’s boots were on display
He played with soul the Liverpool Way
There was Heighway he was class
Saw God when McDermott scored
Saw Jimmy Case and begged for more
I stood down by The Mersey
And I sang a song for Liverpool

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Living for Saturday
With Kopite mates none walk alone
The Fields of Anfield welcome all
We’re singing songs for Anfield’s jewels
I watched St Michael run
Like a silver bullet ‘neath the sun
Saw Rushie smile as 4 he scored
Saw Dalglish and begged for more
I stood down by The Mersey
And I sang a song for Liverpool

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Dreaming of the day
I saw a team of Redmen play
Stepping out as Kings
I saw a silver crown come down from high
And the mancs they stood and cried
For Reds are Champions, 19 times
Saw Billy Liddell with passion score
Saw Stevie G and begged for more
I stood down by The Mersey
And I sang a song for Liverpool

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I stood down by The Mersey
And I sang a song for Liverpool.
