The hole in the Gallowgate end fence.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We never needed money
All we had was common sense
We always could get into the ground
Through the hole in the Gallowgate fence
It was our little secret
No one but us ever knew
How Sixteen little geordie kids
Could squeeze our bodies through.
We never paid a penny
But saw every game they played
Why should we pay a shilling
To join the boy’s end brigade
We saw Milburn, Mitchell , Harvey
And I am sure they would agree
The Three of them would have done the same
To watch the ganes for free
But please don’t tell Freddie Shepherd
He might have a heart attack
For even though we are pensioner’s now
He might want his money back.

Notes

I remember how back in the 50’s if you tried hard enough you could always find a way to avoid paying at St James’s Park. But now even David Blane would find it hard to get in for nowt. Happy days.
