THE DAY I WAS BORN
IN THE CRADLE I SIGHED,
MOTHER GAVE ME A LEEDS SCARF
HAND KNITTED WITH PRIDE,
SAYING WEAR IT THROUGH LIFE SON
AND WITH EVERY STRIDE,
WALK TALL IN THE WORLD
LET THE WHITES BE YOUR GUIDE

SINGING LEEDS UNITED
AND UNITED YOU'LL STAND,
WITH THE PRIDE OF ALL YORKSHIRE,
AND CREAM OF THE LAND.

MY HEARTLAND IS YORKSHIRE
MY SOUL BLAZES WHITE
AND MY BLOODSTREAM IS WARMED
BY THE ELLAND ROAD LIGHTS
MY SPIRIT IS FREE
I SHALL BE NO MANS SLAVE
I'LL BE TRUE TILL THE WHITE ROSE
DOTH BLOOM ON MY GRAVE.

SINGING LEEDS UNITED,
AND UNITED WE'LL STAND
WITH THE PRIDE OF ALL YORKSHIRE
AND CREAM OF THE LAND.

NOW I'VE BEEN AN ELLAND ROADER
FOR MANY'S THE YEAR
AND I'VE HELPED BUILD THIS FORTRESS
THAT ALL OTHERS FEAR
THE SCUM ARE SO SILENT
YOU CAN HEAR FERGIE FART
OH BUT WE ARE THE CREAM
AND WE NEVER LOSE HEART.

SINGING LEEDS UNITED
AND UNITED WE STAND
WITH THE PRIDE OF ALL YORKSHIRE
AND CREAM OF THE LAND

OH BUT WHEN REVIE CALLS ME
THEY'LL PLAY THE LAST POST
AND MY BODY IS STILL
I'LL LEAVE ONLY MY GHOST
YOU MAY SEE MY FACE
ON THE HEAD OF YOUR BEER
OH AND HOW IT WILL SMILE
WHEN I HEAR YOU ALL CHEER.

SINGING LEEDS UNITED
AND UNITED WE'LL STAND
WITH THE PRIDE OF ALL YORKSHIRE
AND CREAM OF THE LAND.

SINGING LEEDS UNITED
AND UNITED WE'LL STAND,
WITH THE PRIDE OF ALL YORKSHIRE
AND CREAM OF THE LAND
