Gerry and the Pacemakers, with this song,

never could have known,

how famous their anthem would become

with Liverpool’s – ‘You’ll never walk alone!

 

‘When The Saints go marching in’,

is Southampton’s trusted tune.

Whilst Man City supporters identified,

with their version of – ‘Blue Moon’.

 

I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles;

synonymous with West Ham & Bobby Moore.

Whilst ‘Z Cars’  -the theme of Everton,

and also Watford, but why – I’m not sure?

 

The Dave Clark Five’s ‘Glad All Over’,

brings out Crystal Palace smiles.

Whilst up at Tranmere Rovers,

they run out to – ‘The Rockford Files’.

 

The theme from 633 Squadron,

I hear, is Bolton Wanderers song,

and ‘Im A Believer’ by The Monkees,

is sung at Wigan, by their army strong.

 

‘Is this the way to Amarillo’

fills Chesterfield fans with fire,

and Stoke City’s anthem – ‘Delilah’,

from Tom Jones, confirms their desire.

 

Aston Villa I’m told, come out to,

– Black Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’,

Whilst Arsenal prefer ‘The Clash’,

though if I’m wrong, they’ll be annoyed.

 

Club Anthems always touching,

sending arrows to the heart,

as generations come together;

a way of life, right from the start.

 

Whether playing in the Sunday Leagues,

with Dad stood on the touch-line,

or being the one in a million,

who for a top club, sign.

 

No difference, the commitment.

No less thrilling is the game.

Football is an institution,

loved by young and old the same.
