Stanley I AM A park in a city Listening out for dreams Happy sitting pretty Between two special teams Stanley is the name I have a history Football is the game That holds hands with me I'm mostly painted green With two lakes, you can view Setting a splendid scene Surrounded by red and blue People run and walk Children happily play And I hear lots of talk About an important day It seems it's derby time The biggest game of all Where hearts will surely climb And hearts will surely fall A red nose and a blue nose On a silent seesaw Reaching highs and lows To win, lose or draw Crowds, crowds cheer Beyond a slide and swing And I smile as I hear This magical, magical thing I am a park in a city Listening out for dreams Happy sitting pretty Between two football teams Stephen James Pratt
