Steven Gerrard you're the one



Do roo roo. Do roo roo roo...

Until Gerrard we were never happy
We needed so much more
Rain clouds oh, they used to chase us
Down they would pour
Join our tears
Allay our fears
Sent to us from heaven
Steven Gerrard you're the one

Do roo roo. Do roo roo roo...

From Merseyside he came to return us
Back to our rightful place
For deep inside he knew we deserve to
Return to glory days
And now he's here
We have no fear
Sent to us from heaven
Steven Gerrard you're the one

Do roo roo. Do roo roo roo.

Still we follow on




Been beat up and battered around
Been set up, and been sent down
Double crossed for a fuckin pound
Still we follow on


Banter years they took their toll
The crooks and spivs were in control
But those 3 bears restored our soul
Still we follow on


Now those years they are behind us
Soon be back where we belong
Dominating like always do
Everybody, give it laldy, for Rangers
There is nothing, can compare to, The Rangers

Come on feel the noise


So you are thinking that The Rangers died
Well I'll tell you something blue flags flying high, still flying high
We still the greatest and that is why
The blue flag is still flying
Still flying high, it will be flying high
For evermore woah woh

Cos we are the Billy boys
You'll know us by our noise
We go wild wild wild
We go wild wild wild
We are the Billy boys
You'll know us by our noise
We go wild wild wild
We go wild wild wild
Woah woh

So you thought the bears would disappear
Well you should know better, blue flags high, still flying high
We're all together and you know we're here
Can you hear us singing
The blue flags flying high, it will be flying high for
evermore woah woh

The nights


Hey, once upon a younger year
When all our shadows disappeared
The animals inside came out to play
When face to face with all our fears
Learned our lessons through the tears
Made memories we knew would never fade
One day my father—he told me,
Come and see The Rangers play
He took me by the hand, I heard him say,
"We'll go to Ibrox
My son to watch the Rangers play
You never will forget this special day
He said, "One day you'll leave this world behind
So live a life you will remember."
My father told me when I was just a child
These are the nights that never die
My father told me

A lot of songs that will need to be ditched.

I really do doff my cap to the lad for trying and hope it is a success, but I can't see it being, or I can see it turning into exactly what he doesn't want.

It doesn't matter where you are, you get a large group of bears together the Loyalist tunes come out, the add ons get sung and that happens everywhere.

As I say I hope he gets what he wants, but I can't see it happening at all how he thinks it will.

And let's be honest, calling it a Rangers night and not having that song as the OP is a bit like toast and jam without the jam.

I understand some people might not dig or enjoy the Loyalist element, but it is part of Rangers, and the vast majority of fans mindset and isn't going away anytime soon.
Please please please let me sing FTP please.

That’s not my intention at all mate I just don’t want this being derailed. As I said there’s plenty out there for the fans that want to sing the loyalist songs but there’s very little if anything at all for the fans that want to sing football songs new and old. Matches will always be a mix of both but one look at the boss nights videos and the atmospheres at Anfield over the past 2 seasons especially should give everyone an idea of what WBD is after and why we as a support need it.
If I understand this correctly, WBD, a big part of getting musicians involved is also to help with now song writing for Liverpool. To use these events to develop new chants and songs? If that’s the case, it’s also a good idea.

Lastly, on the point of loyalist type songs, I agree that nobody is saying that this type of event would be to replace that. It’s additional.

However, if people can’t see that serious musicians and entertainers trying to earn a living in the business won’t get involved with events that dip into terrorism and politics and sectarianism then they aren’t really thinking clearly enough. If these events are to attract professional musicians to get involved, some of the back catalogue needs to be excluded.

I still think it’s a great idea.

That's a good effort but if you are going to make it Rangers 'songs' only, you will need to change the billy boys

I think this can be a positive in so many ways. As I stated in a previous post asking me why or what made me want to do this. When watching Liverpool fans jumping about singing their hearts out, singing songs and celebrating the club that they adore. I thought, I would love to be part of something like that! But I never will be, unless it is organised, need to do it myself.

The topic that keeps cropping up is, can we really hold a night like this where Loyalist and paramilitary songs don't get aired? Hell yes, the people showing an interest in this want to be able to celebrate the greatest club in the world without distraction. Exactly how many will turn up remains to be seen. If we sell this out, it can be an ongoing thing. Let's see how it develops.

Funnily enough when I was playing it to my daughter that's what she said. And tbh I wondered if anyone else would suggest it. I didn't want to ask the question, I thought I'll leave it out there and see if anyone else thinks like she did. My opinion? The negative if the Billy boys is only the Fenian blood line, I always assumed Rangers fans were Billy boys. Interesting to know if any of the musicians would feel uncomfortable singing it and how others feel about it.

I think ditch fenian blood for anything not sectarian and it’s a winner

Imo you’ll have no issues with attendance
There’s an appetite for this among all generations

Yes. I do agree. Very important to get a good mixture of songs so everyone is entertained. By that I mean the musicians can play songs they have performed before and get good reactions. This is something the Boss nights do

Agree and if these nights take off you can ‘Redefine’ songs like the TBB

Just have to look at the latest Arfield number to see how catchy songs can take off.

Can’t wait for these nights to take off.
That poor lassie on Twitter
Wee American sitting posting on twitter about her Saturday night and gets inundated with Scotty Arfield :p

Anyone know any Celtic supporting musicians who would do this for the right price? :cool: It's not looking likely this is going ahead. Unless something dramatic happens:confused:

The lad Stephen Dean who sung those 2 songs Edmiston Drive and Majestic which are on YouTube is a very good singer and those 2 songs deserve more of an airing as they are absolutely perfect for this type of doo. There has got to be others in the support who are decent singers and play guitar who are up for this surely?
