Vintage Liverpool fanchant
Down Anfield Way the world is gay All Kopites are to tingle, With rows and rows of crimson flags From Bootle up to Dingle. The toast is to eleven men Who wear the scarlet jersey. Their names will live forever more Along the river Mersey. They'll take their place in history Amongst the all time greats, Thompson, Byrne, St. John, and Hunt And Skipper Rowdy Yeats. So let us sing a song or two On Wembley's famous ground, And let London town re-echo To that famous Mersey sound. They beat the Leeds two goals to one And Rowdy met the queen, And Gerry broke his collar bone As brave as you have seen. And when they bring that cup back home Through streets all paved in Red, Those LiverBirds will fly away Just like Bill Shankly said.
