Kristian Wyatt - Here We Go Gathering Cups In May




Here We Go Gathering Cups In May Platform 9 at Lime Street, I’ve got 40 hours in front of me No ticket for the special, boat or game But old “Big ears” is waiting, a thousand miles away Here we go, we’re gathering cups in May This is the Liverpool way How Shanks loved that swagger I have today European Royalty, the mighty Reds Here we go, we’re gathering cups in May A Co-op bag for luggage, there was no need for a case For a sandwich and my ale and spare keks just in case Singing Arrivederci Roma as that special rolled away Here we go, we’re gathering cups in May Liverpool was great then, got the red scarves tied to blue Merseyside, it was the call, as the Mancs moved to let us through But banter turned to bitter, but one day this will change Here we go, we’re gathering cups in May Sharing stories with the Reds, as the ferry left the port One quit his job for the severance pay, another left the work till short We did whatever it took, to be there on this day Here we go, we’re gathering cups in May This is the Liverpool way, How Shanks loved that swagger I have today European Royalty, the mighty Reds Here we go, we’re gathering cups in May The hotel it was 2 stars, and I think they dipped them both But we lived a life of Riley there, all fifteen of us Then onwards to the Curva Nord, down that tree-lined way Here we go, we’re gathering cups in May The wave of red it moved on, we were 26,000 strong And then the great one said to us, as we walked along “We’re gonna win this tonight boys”, I promise Shanks did say Here we go, we’re gathering cups in May The “Redmen” bellowed out their songs, as the boys came out that night “How can we get beat for these lot”? Terry Mac was right The rest they say is history, as “Big ears” came our way Here we go, we’re gathering cups in May This is the Liverpool way How Shanks loved that swagger I have today European Royalty, the mighty Reds Here we go, we’re gathering cups in May Written by: Kristian Wyatt Copyright: 2020 Kristian Wyatt
