lyrics

'This way Darlin' take my hand..
Through this gate round to our stand.
Daughter Dear, you're the apple of my eye.
Just remember
- City till I die!"

Your Great-Grandfather brought your granny too!
Up high on his shoulders, maybe the same age as you?
After the War, he played here in his prime.
Then, as now, forever
- City till I die!

Daughter Dear, its noisy here
you'll likely end up foundered!
But if you find your heart could almost stop and start,
with every late chance squandered
- every winning goal's like thunder!
you will know the joy
of singing till you lose your voice
- City till I die!

I'd say though you'll love it, I know you like the game.
I've see you taking free-kicks with the dog, out in the rain!
Maybe you'll play some day, we'll cheer you on with pride.
But hey, No pressure!
- City till I die!

Daughter Dear, its noisy here
you'll likely end up foundered!
But if you find your heart could almost stop and start,
with every late chance squandered
or every winning goal's like thunder!
then you will know the joy
of singing till you lose your voice
- City till I die!
yes , you will know the joy of singing till you lose your voice
- City till I die!
