Sung to the tune of the Irish Rover
In the year of our Lord
Eighteen ninety and two
John Houlding evicted the blues
From their Anfield abode,
On the Walton Breck Road,
He was tired of watching them lose.
Years behind in their rent,
All the money was spent:
A bank that held nothing but zeroes.
And Houlding instead,
Built a team dressed in Red,
Liverpool were his Anfield Heroes!
