I’ve been a fan of Crystal Palace football club since 1968/69 season.Every season is a roller coaster of emotion.
sure it’s only a game…
here we go again on the roller coaster of emotion
another season of optimism and blind devotion
to a club called Palace, from London south
Palace forever, we sing and we shout
we’re the best fans in the country, of that we’re very proud
chanting and stamping and cheering out loud
shouting at the tv screen, the rantings, the screams
another season of high hopes and shattered dreams
so we drown our sorrows down the local pub
talk of conspiracies against the smaller club
so many blind refs and penalties not awarded
oh will our efforts ever be rewarded
we struck the post twice and then hit the bar
and our keeper came off his line way too far
so now we’re on a terrible losing streak
we haven’t won a match for many a week
the cribbers and moaners are out in full force
calling for sackings and changes of course
take this player out and put this player in
are we ever going to score and manage to win ?
the BBC don’t like us, we’re always on last
in the role of underdog, we’re always cast
they’re obsessed with Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea
and those two from Manchester, United and City
and how badly they played whenever they’re beaten
full credit to the smaller club is rarely given
but we’ll still support whether relegated or staying up
and we’re still in with a chance of winning the cup
‘cos we are CRYSTAL PALACE through thick and through thin
and we’ll support forever whether we lose, draw or win.
