They Came to Old Trafford That October Night: MUFC Songs

Classic from 1974 League Cup win versus City


They came to Old Trafford that October night, The boys from the City dressed in blue and white, We were in the Second, They were in Division One, That night little Gerry Daly took them on. The game was tremendous, Swung from end to end, The football was praised through the length of the land, A draw grew more likely as the night grew more dark, Then the ball was handled by City's Jeff Clarke. The Stretford End bayed its world famous roar, Gerry Daly stepped up, From the spot he did score, And as one man, All Old Trafford roared again, United are the Champs of Manchester again. Salford and Blackley were singing all night, Of the new Champs of Manchester in Red, Black and White, Folk without tickets how have they done, And then danced in the streets when we told them we'd won!
