Shanks Was The Man - Music by Paul Wilkes. Words by Joe McCloskey and Paul Wilkes. Song is copyrighted by Paul Wilkes 2009.

Shanks was the man

Paisley was his right hand

Smithy the iron

Heighway was flyin high


Crazy Horse was mad

Joey Jones was bad

Clem at the back

Tosh up the front with Keegan

Oh what a team that we had

Oh what a team that we had


Yeatsy was big with strong

Cally could do no wrong

Whealiin was dealin

Balls up the front with Souness


So coming the later days

Kenny's on the stage

Lindsay and Lloyd

Sir Roger and Saint John


Hero's everyone

Hero's everyone


Shanks was the man

Paisley was his right hand

A time of hero's

A team of fighting lions


Oh what a team that we had

Oh what a team that we had

Oh what a team that we had  

 

Off Go The Lights - words and music by Paul Wilkes. Song is copyrighted by Paul Wilkes 2009


Off go the lights

The end of a day

The end of a beautiful era


Hard to say goodbye

We know you could of

Taking us so much further


So now all of those charms

All of those jokes

Will always live on


In our heart of hearts

You are the boss

You are our favorite son


Off go the lights

The end of a day

The end of a magical era


Hard to say goodbye

We know you could of

Taking us so much further


You always did put on a show

But its hard not to

When your everyone's hero


A socialist of the working class

so lets all raise our flags

To half mast


Off go the lights

The end of a day

The end of a beautiful era


Hard to say goodbye

We know you could of

Taking us so much further

Shanks quote

"There is no doubt Kennedy will do a good job for Liverpool. He is big, brave and strong. His signing means that we now have the greatest strength in depth that we have ever had. We are so strong that you need to have a couple of international caps to get into the reserve team. Kennedy will cause plenty of trouble to defences. He fights all the way and he was at the top of my list of my wanted men. It has been a momentous day, but his signing shows that I am not running away. Maybe it will be said that one of the last things I did at this club was a to sign a great new player."

Shankly said goodbye to Liverpool on the same day Liverpool signed Ray Kennedy
