A Letter From East Stirlingshire

A Letter from East Stirlingshire

To celebrate the The Rangers beginning life in Scottish League Division 3, Craigybhoy felt it only appropriate that this humble brave wee clubs epic journey around the remote parts of their beloved Scotland should be heralded. In order to do justice to tactical genius Ally and charitable do-gooder Charles Green and their bunch of caring compassionate and fragile footballers like Lee McCulloch and Kirk Broadfoot, Craigybhoy has rewritten The Proclaimers classic “A letter from America”

Take it away lads…or just take them away…..someone…please!

A Letter from East Stirlingshire

When you go will you send back
A letter from East Stirlingshire?
Take a look up the railtrack
From Galloway to Peterheid

Broke off from my work the other day
I spent the evening thinking about
All the money that flowed away
Everywhere but to the taxman
I wonder if we could have re-signed Flo with more fans’ dosh?

When you go will you send back
A letter from Galabank?
Take a look up the railtrack
From Hampden to Annan Athletic

I’ve looked at the accounts
Tried hard to imagine
Why the fuck we paid Ronald Waterreus
From Kaunas to Maribor
We should have held you
We should have told you
But you know our sense of timing
Always out of Europe by August

When you go will you send back
A letter from Anstruther
Take a look up the railtrack
From Elgin to Stirling

Motherwell no more
Paradise no more
Even Paisley no more
Credit no more

Motherwell no more
Paradise no more
Credibility no more
Premier league titles no more
