Seven-One (Another goal for Glasgow Celtic)

7-1fingers

 

The 19th October 1957.  The Scottish League Cup Final.  The record victory in any senior British cup final.

Celtic fans have been singing about the legendary 7-1 scoreline for over five decades – and will always do so.  This humiliation of the old Rangers can never be bettered.  And this is one of the best songs about Hampden In The Sun, to the tune of ‘Kevin Barry’.

 

On the classic slopes of Hampden 

In October ’57

Stood the mighty Glasgow Rangers

And another great eleven.

100,000 voices singing

‘Follow Follow’ was their theme

While a gallant band of faithful

Sang ‘The Wearing Of The Green’

.

Battle joined and battle favoured

Battle favoured only one

As each glory goal was added

Seven times 

This song was sung!

.

Another goal for Glasgow Celtic

Another victory for the cause,

Another reason to be giving

Another cheer just for the Bhoys. 

For if I live to be a hundred, 

I’ll never, ever have such fun –

As the day the Glasgow Celtic 

Beat the Rangers 7-1

.

From the streets of dear old Glasgow

To the famous county Cork

From the bridge at Sydney Harbour

To the City of New York

They will sing of Celtic’s glory

They will sing it old and young

Of the day, the Glasgow Celtic

Beat the Rangers

Seven-One!

.

Battle joined and battle favoured

Battle favoured only one

As each glory goal was added

Seven times 

This song was sung

.

Another goal for Glasgow Celtic

Another victory for the cause,

Another reason to be giving

Another cheer just for the Bhoys. 

For if I live to be a hundred, 

I’ll never, ever have such fun –

As the day the Glasgow Celtic 

Beat the Rangers 7-1

(As the day the Glasgow Celtic 

Beat the Rangers 7-1)

 

There are a few versions of this great song out there – this one, by The Shamrocks, is the best.  Old school in every sense.

 

 

 

The Bhoys and Ghirls of the Gorbals know the score . . . 

Seventh heaven in the Gorbals  7 1 grafitti
