GOLD!

GOLD!

A Song to Sing Tribute

to

The Lions


(With  thanks to Spandau Ballet)

“Gold”

You brought the big cup home
Fans crying from Glasgow to Rome
The Pope in tears, I could have sworn

Those were your salad days
A Legend never to fade away
Not Just another Match of the day

Oh how we’re proud of you,
How we’re proud of you

No Celt could ever, ever, feel small
Lisbon’s left us, standing so tall

Gold!

Lions lifted up our soul
They had the power we know
They’re indestructible
Always in Lisbon!
Gold!

With that Cup you proudly returned
And something every Celts learned
You’re indestructible, Always in Lisbon!

After though the years have gone
The Legend only grown in our time
You were West of Scotland partners in crime

It’s only 50 years ago
Big Jock faced down the man in the suit and tanned face
Herrera knew that Jock was taking his place
And while he bowed to you, we’re in love with you

Our love could scale a Connolly prison wall
Lisbon leaves us standing so tall

Gold!
Lions lifted up our soul
They had the power we know
They’re indestructible
Always in Lisbon!
Gold!

Gold!
Always knew the way to the goal
The legend continues to grow
You’re indestructible
Always believe in, Lions!
Gold!

To Paradise one day, all shall return
The Lions forever playing in the sun
You’re indestructible, always believing
Gold!
