Default Im a Stretford Ender

The greatest ever United song, in my humble opinion.


Tune - Manchester Rambler

I'm a Stretford Ender,
I'm a Stretford Ender,
From Manchester way,
I spend all my money on watching them play,
I may be a wage slave on Monday,
But I watch United when they play.

I've been down to Norwich,
And Bristol and Ipswich,
I've hitched to Southampton as well,
I've been stranded in Dingwall,
For United's football,
And many more places I can tell,
My scarf it has oft been my pillow,
And a railway station my bed,
But sooner than part from United,
I think I would rather be dead.

I'm a Stretford Ender,
I'm a Stretford Ender,
From Manchester way,
I spend all my money on watching them play,
I may be a wage slave on Monday,
But I watch United when they play.

I once courted a maid,
A spot-welder by trade,
Who was fair as a goal by the King,
And the gold of her hair
Matched Bobby Charlton's pair
In that European Cup Final of which we sing.
On the day we were due to get married,
I went to Old Trafford instead,
As sooner than part from United,
I think I would rather be dead.

I'm a Stretford Ender,
I'm a Stretford Ender,
From Manchester way,
I spend all my money on watching them play,
I may be a wage slave on Monday,
But I watch United when they play.

The game had just ended,
And as I descended,
The steps of the Old Kippax Stand,
Into the Street,
And who should we meet,
Those blue bastards we hate and can't stand,
The battle was fast and was furious,
And a bottle hit me on the head,
But sooner than part from United,
I think I would rather be dead.

I'm a Stretford Ender,
I'm a Stretford Ender,
From Manchester way,
I spend all my money on watching them play,
I may be a wage slave on Monday,
But I watch United when they play.

So I go where I will,
Over land sea and hill,
Wherever those Busby Babes play,
And I wear my black tunic,
In the memory of Munich,
And the Martyrs that died on that day,
I've seen them the Champions of Europe,
And into Division Two instead,
But sooner than part from United,
I think I would rather be dead.

I'm a Stretford Ender,
I'm a Stretford Ender,
From Manchester way,
I spend all my money on watching them play,
I may be a wage slave on Monday,
But I watch United when they play.

I think it is good to have the lyrics of songs up here even if there aren't clips available (there is a record of the same name by Red Roar Mantra but the lyrics are different).

We'll just have to get a recording device and record it at the MUST gathering
