My lads are both Portsmouth boys,
and today they are full of football joys.
Portsmouth have won the cup to their loudest cheers,
Both are crying happiness’ wonderful tears.
Champagne spraying all over the place,
toasting the win with smiles on face.
The Liverpool lass that is there mum,
knows the pride that is flowing through them.
It was close, but Kanu came through,
and scored the goal that made the dreams come true.
Two lads in a Midlands town are screaming out loud
of their home side they are so justly proud.
So in tradition for my boys special rhymes,
let’s hear those Pompey chimes
They are so proud you won the cup
PLAY UP POMPEY! POMPEY PLAY UP!
