    Let me tell you the story of a poor boy
    Who was sent far away from his home
    To fight for his king and his country
    and also the old folks back home.

    So they put him in a highland division
    Sent him off to a far, foreign land
    Where the flies swarm around in their thousands
    and there was nothing to see but the sand.

    Well, the battle it started next morning
    Under the Arabian Sun.
    I remember that poor scouser Tommy
    he was shot by an old nazi gun.

    As he lay on the battlefield dying, dying, dying
    with the blood gushing out of his head, of his head
    As he lay on the battlefield dying, dying, dying
    These were the last words he said:-

    Oh I am a Liverpudlian
    and I come from the Spion Kop.
    I love to sing, I love to shout
    and I go there quite a lot, every week!.

    We support the team that's dressed in red
    It's a team that you all know
    It's a team that we call Liverpool
    and to glory we will go.

    1-0 ;)
