Liverbird Upon My Chest
« on: October 8, 2012, 04:15:13 PM »
(To the tune of Ballad of the Green Berets)

Here's a song about a football team
The greatest team you've ever seen
A team that play total Football
They've won the league, Europe and all.

Chorus:

A Liverbird upon my chest
We are the men, of Shankly's best
A team that plays the Liverpool way
And wins the championship in May
 

With Kenny Dalglish on the ball
He was the greatest of them all
And Ian Rush, four goals or two
Left Evertonians feeling blue

(Chorus)

Now if you go down Goodison Way
Hard luck stories you hear each day
There's not a trophy to be seen
'Cos Liverpool have swept them clean

(Chorus)

Now on the glorious 10th of May
There's laughing reds on Wembley Way
We're full of smiles and joy and glee
It's Everton 1 and Liverpool 3

(Chorus)

Now on the 20th of May
We're laughing still on Wembley Way
Those Evertonians are feeling blue
It's Liverpool 3 and Everton 2

(Chorus)

And as we sang round Goodison Park
With crying blues all in a nark
They're probably crying still
at Liverpool 5 and Everton nil.

(Chorus)

We Remember them with pride
Those mighty reds of Shankly's side
And Kenny's boys of '88
There's never been a side so great

(Chorus)

Now back in 1965
When great Bill Shankly was alive
We're playing Leeds, the score's 1-1
When it fell to the head of Ian St John

(Chorus)

On April 15th '89
What should have been a joyous time
Ninety six Friends, we all shall miss
And all the Kopites want justice (JUSTICE!)

(Chorus)

One of our greatest songs... Also one of our longest

Anyone know any more verses? Here's one I remember:

The angels came one sunny day
They came to take Sir Bob away
The greatest sight you'll ever see
Three European Cups for Bob Paisley - PAISLEY!

We went to Rome in 84
We won the treble like never before
Barney Rubble was the man
Who won the cup for Joe Fagan

i had goosebumps watching that!
Above all, I would like to be remembered as a man who was selfless,
who strove and worried so that others could share the glory,
and who built up a family of people who could hold their heads up high and say

'We're Liverpool'

If my assistant had not signalled a goal, I would have given a penalty and sent off goalkeeper Patr Cheh. he beeped me to signal the foul. The noise from the crowd  stopped me hearing it, I have been involved at places like Barcelona, Ibrox, Old Trafford, Arsenal, but I've never in my life been involved in such an atmosphere. IT WAS INCREDIBLE

Now we sang round Goodison Park
Those Evertonians in a nark
44 yards were in attack
the sweet right foot of Gary Mac

Remember singing this in Marseille away 2007 in the port. With a few lads I met on here. Duggs74 and Red man 4 Eva. What a song. Miss those euro aways. Also the birth place of another famous Liverpool song...
15/4/89 never forgotten.

Then one wet January night
We were playing the Blueshite
Those Evertonians feeling sore
At Everton nil and Liverpool 4
Justice for the 96

Would be nice if we included Stevie's hattrick from 2 years back.

It's good - not quite as good as the other version I've heard for that night:
In Istanbul, in May Oh-Five,
The greatest night of all our lives,
We played Milan from three nil down
And Won the European Crown
FIVE TIMES
Luis Garcia... tries his luck........

When King Kenny came back home
He had a laugh against Everton
There came a man who is big and hard
It's a hat-trick for Steven Gerrard

Surely we need a new verse for the great side of 2019!
if I came home to allison in bed with my wife I'd ask him to phone Virgil to see if he wanted to pop round too.
