Worthington Cup Final 2003

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Twas early in the month of March
The reds marched on to the Millenium Park
We gathered with our Shankly flags
The “Treble” emblazoned on our backs

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The Kopites packed the westgate side
Scarves and banners in the spring sunshine
The LiverBird worn with pride upon each chest
The Sons of Spion Shankly’s best

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Mancs had chances and so did we
Half time looms and then the cheers
The “Huyton Hammer” with his iron boots
Lets fly with a shot that pounds off you know who

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Michael Owen moved with lightning speed
Played like he’s eyes in the back of heels
And Super Danny has ’em on the rack
With the SAS we’re solid at the back

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Dudek just like Jesus saved
Carra’s Bootle boots Giggs contained
Whilst Keane is quiet, lost his bottle
And Riise snuffs out Beckham’s crosses

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Veron and Scholes come close but fail
Towards the end we wrap the game
Didi sets up St Michael Owen
2-0 to us, the Mancs start going

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 England’s finest our grand legacy
18 League Titles, they’ve not caught up
And now the Class of 2003
Taught them how to lift the Worthy Cup

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 Now some will tell you its fool’s silver
Worthless cup and worth sod all
But Van Nisltelrooy had the longest face
And left his loser’s medal on the floor.
