Gay Meadow
Two spires and a tower
Have watched every hour
On the Gay Meadow ground
Where ninety five years
Of triumph and tears
Still abound.

When a ball met the river
Fred Davies would shiver
In his coracle boat
The ball would be captured,
Supporters enraptured
And the game stayed afloat.

The Everton match
Was victory snatch
For the Shropshire Blues
And harboured a dream
For the Gay Meadow team
To see Chelsea lose.

The Meadow was humming,
With Cameras running
For the world to see,
But Chelsea just snatched
The end of the match
With four goals to three.

New flats will stand here
Where memories appear
Which time will re-arrange,
The fact and the fiction
Will meet contradiction
On the Gay Meadow stage.

New fields can be greener,
Smoother and cleaner,
Where puddles don't form
Gay Meadow will seem
A floodlit dream
Where old memories warm.
