Charlie & The Bhoys – Willie Maley lyrics

Willie Maley was his name
He brought some great names to the game
When he was the boss at Celtic Park
He taught them how to play football
He made the greatest of them all
Gallacher and Quinn have left their mark.

And they gave us James Mcgrory and Paul Mcstay
They gave us Johnstone, Tully, Murdoch, Auld and Hay
And most of the football greats
Have past through Parkheads gates
For to play football the Glasgow Celtic way.

In 38 there was a show Glasgow was the place to go
A model of the tower was footballs prize
England sent 4 of the best
They didn't meet with much success
Cause the trophy ended up in paradise.


Coronation time was here 53 that was the year
Another 4 from England met there doom
They said we'll have to try again
But like before it was in vain
Because the cup is in the Parkhead trophy room.


And then in 1957 we faced a guy called Gorgie Nevin
The game is etched on every Celtic fan
Wilson, Mochan and Mc Phail
And Willie Fernie scored as well
As Celtic beat the Rangers 7-1.


So 10 years they had gone and so
To Portugal we had to go, to play the team that Italy
Celtic went out to attack
They won the big cup and they brought it back
It's the first time it had been on British shores.


And now a new Millennium we have a brand new stadium
We're amongst the honours once again
The Celtic fans did proudly sing
Larsson is the King of Kings
And he joins the list of famous Celtic men!

Chorus 'til whenever!
