To the banks of the Mersey

Ever since, Bramley-Moore Dock was chosen as the site for our new stadium, the sea shanty “Liverpool Judies” played on my mind. The dock is mentioned in the Lyrics, so I tried adapting it to an Everton Theme. With the stadium Consultation, improved performances, Blue Crimbo, and hopefully a win tomorrow, I thought I’d send it to the Web.

To the banks of the Mersey

A Song for all our homes past present and hopefully future
[To the tune of Liverpool Judies]

Stanley Park, Priory Road, then to Anfield we went
Where we won our first title, and up went the rent
With Mere Green in Mahon’s pocket, across the Park we did go
And the rest, well it’s History, as all Toffees know

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

The feelings you get when you watch the Blues play
They're not manufactured, we’re all born that way
The highs and the lows, the trouble and the strife
We’re the People’s Club, welcome, to the rest of your life

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

Most years in the top fight’s – one record we claim
“The School of Science”, it’s how we play the game
With Prince Rupert’s Tower at the Heart of our crest
It’s “Nil Satis Nisi Optimum”, Nothing but the best.

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

We’ve so many heroes, I’ll name just a few
The Cannonball Kid, Holy Trinity too
Big Dunc, The Golden Vision, Latchford and Dean
Sharp, Reid, Gray and Ratcliffe – all graced Kendall’s team

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

The last of the Corinthians, once famously said
That one Evertonian’s, worth 20 in red
And the Great Ball of Fire, this quote bares his name
"Once touched by the toffees, you’ll never be the same"

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

There’s those who have managed and played in Royal Blue
Royle, Harvey, Kendall, and Billy Bingham too
And then there’s the Catt, of whom little is heard
No media favourite, no credit where deserved

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

Great Goodison Nights, in our folklore are set
Inter, Florentina, Munich, the best yet
As we bombed the Germans, we’ll never forget
How the Gwladys Street End, sucked the goals in the Net

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

We’ve the 3 “Ms” on board, and once more we can dream
With Marcel and Marco re-building our team.
With Farad Morishi, there’s money at last.
Time to look to the future, not dwell in the past

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

Now our Grand Old Lady, is showing her age
It’s time that we moved to a new modern stage
We’ll still have fond memories, of all those great stars
Proudly running out to the theme from “Z-Cars"

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

And soon we’ll be moving to Bramley-Moore Dock
And all Evertonian’s to the Pier Head will flock
The site has been chosen, the first plans have been viewed
Eighteen Ninety-Two, the last time we’ve been moved

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

Good Health to all Toffees, where err you may be
Born into the Family, that is EFC
As for you Kopites, you’re bitter of course
Well it’s not just the City, the Liver Birds aren’t yours

Soo! It’s Goooo! Go Toffees Go,
To the banks of the Mersey
There’s going to be a show

And there was me thinking we'd found someone to finance it.

I can't keep up with all this modern stuff — is that one of them hippety-hoppity tunes??
