The Anfield Express

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Hop on board The Anfield express, a train bound for Liverpool
Where you’ll see fast flowing football and the players will make you drool.
The train it has 4 carriages, each named after a place
And when you think back on the memories a smile will takeover your face.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The first carriage is called MADRID where the reds they overcame Spurs
And won European Cup number 6 which you can see in the club’s museum tours.
That was to be the first of a remarkable 4 trophies that Hendo would have to lift up
The first of his captain’s shuffles started off with the European Cup

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Carriage number 2 is called ISTANBUL, the European Super Cup the prize
Another all english affair against Chelsea, would the Liverbird once again rise.
After a penalty shootout with nothing between the 2 teams
It was Hendo’s second opportunity to shuffle, the stuff of boyhood dreams.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 DOHA is the name of carriage number 3, a city way out in Qatar
The Reds aiming to be World Champions, a feat that’s eluded them so far.
In the final they beat Flamengo with all their Brazilian flair
And Hendo would shuffle his feet once more while raising another trophy in the air.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The 4th carriage is simply called ENGLAND where the Reds are Kings of the land
Led by a magical German with a fabulous footballing wand.
He has changed us from doubters to believers, he has taken us back to the top
He has brought The Premier League trophy right onto The Spion Kop
We have waited so long to be Champions, always reminded its been 30 years
But, The Liverbird stands tall once more, that’s what other clubs fear.
No longer can they say that to us nor mention the Stevie G slip
The fans watched Hendo’s last shuffle from the comfort of their own home
Singing along to our anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone.
If you’d like to know more of our history, just do a little Google search
I already know whst it says though, THE REDS ARE BACK ON THEIR PERCH.
