lyrics

Often up in Tottenham
Sitting there and watching
Lily white boys and
Nothing is forgotten

Meet you at the platform
Of Rectory Road
You would have been wearing
That thick black coat

Two desperadoes
On a train
Remember Ruben
The Hurricane

Oh lovely piano
And the lid’s not down
Your voice when it sings
All the warm lit sounds

All the fry ups and
All the tea in a flask
Bruce Castle Park when
Winters are dark

Past Seven Sisters
Under black sky
Often your quiet
I wouldn’t know why

White Hart Lane
Settled in blue seats
Me, you and Lou and
No clean sheets

Crooners in the mist
Trigger on their lips
Driving back home to
A 5 Live hiss

When Saturday’s gone and
As the sun sets
Its Match of the Day
And who we’ve got next

Guess we’re all dreamers
Searching some glories
Tintin and Haddock
Bedtime stories

I see you in the stands
I see you in my dream
You watching me
On the astro green

Pacing the touchline
Learning your lines
In Coram Fields
We came from behind

Think I scored once
You must have been proud
I’m lying on the floor
Looking at the clouds

The Guinness in your glass
At the old Bell and Hare
The men all singing like
Look Triggers’ here

Give me one more tune
Put me on your lap
The bristles in your beard
And your grey flat cap

The whistle from you lips and
The joy of a goal
The pain of defeat
As we drift out the road

The rain in my sleep like
Dew in the grass
My green stick fracture
Splits in my heart

Sick notes on the harp
Sting to my cheek
Wet in the air so
The river runs deep

Oh lily white hair
With dead sad eyes
Rushing past us and
I look to the sky

My God it’s a lot
Down at White Hart Lane
Watching Tottenham with
Songs in the rain
