This song is a tribute to Billy Bremner, a great football player that will be remembered for many reasons:
the triumphs he achieved with Leeds, the role he played as captain of the side for many years,
the fact that he always played his heart out 110% for the club. That he was from time to time involved in
some controversy, for instance when banned from the Scottish national side he loved, was more due to
envy and misunderstanding than to Billy Bremner himself.
Bremner's name is mentioned in a lot of Leeds songs. As far back as 1968 King Billy was prominently mentioned
in the song "Glory, Glory Leeds United" - "For the sake of
Leeds United he will break himself in two, His hair is red and fuzzy and his body's black and blue".
Again, in 1972's "Leeds United", Bremner gets singled out
- "There's a red headed tiger known as Billy, And he goes like a human dynamo". We feel that these two
clips perhaps best describe Billy.
Indeed, Bremner was so important to Leeds United that he even got a song of his own. Released in 1971,
and sung with a scottish accent, it is a fitting part of the memory of Billy Bremner!
