The songs of Leeds United --> Track 10

Leeds United

On the A-side of the better known "Leeds, Leeds, Leeds" (a.k.a. "Marching on Together") was a song simply entitled "Leeds United". It is performed by the players from the 1972 squad, and the lyrics give a brief glimpse of the talents of many of them. Lasher Lorimer, Speedy Reaney or Big Jack to mention a few. A great song performed by a great team!

First of all there's the Boss who's right behind us
He's the one who fills our hearts with pride
It's a joy to us all when Big Jack has the ball
To know that he is on our side

There's a red headed tiger known as Billy
And he goes like a human dynamo
Mick the Mover of course, he can work like a horse
And Top Cat Cooper's always on the go

And we play all the way for Leeds United
Elland Road is the only place for us
With heart and soul for the goal that's clearly sighted
We're out to toast each other from that silver Cup

You should see how he runs, Speedy Reaney
When Iron-Man-Hunter sends it down the wing
While the Brains is everywhere, doing more than his share
Sniffer Clarke's always there to bang it in

Proud and tall in the goalmouth stands the Viking
And the eleven foes are never far away
Lasher Lorimer what a shot
Then to tie them in a knot there's Eddie the Last Waltz Gray

And we play all the way for Leeds United
Elland Road is the only place for us
With heart and soul for the goal that's clearly sighted
We're out to toast each other from that silver Cup

And we play all the way for Leeds United
Elland Road is the only place for us
With heart and soul for the goal that's clearly sighted
We're out to toast each other from that silver Cup
