THE LEEDS SALUTE

Click to Listen

When the trumpets calls the Brave
Make way for that tidal wave
The white blue and gold of Leeds United
Veteran and new recruit
As so proudly they salute
With hand on the heart for Leeds United

Forever United, and never to part
Swear my allegiance, hand on my heart
And where ever there's a need
You will hear the lads from Leeds
With hand on the heart for Leeds United

Day by day our army grows
Seeds of unity we'll sow
In the spring when the Yorkshire Rose is blooming
Soldier on there'll be no pause
We will rally to the cause
Till the feast of the victor we're consuming

Forever United, and never to part
Swear my allegiance, hand on my heart
And where ever there's a need
You will hear the lads from Leeds
With hand on the heart for Leeds United

We will see the Leeds salute
You will hear the tramping boot
As we go on our way with Leeds United
There are ghosts of foes to lay
And their spirits yet to slay
With hand on the heart for Leeds United

Forever United, and never to part
Swear my allegiance, hand on my heart
And where ever there's a need
You will hear the lads from Leeds
With hand on the heart for Leeds United

When the trumpet calls the Brave
Make way for that tidal wave
The white blue and gold of Leeds United
Veteran and new recruit
As so proudly they salute
With hand on the heart for Leeds United

Forever United, and never to part
Swear my allegiance, hand on my heart
And where ever there's a need
You will hear the lads from Leeds
With hand on the heart for Leeds United

 

The Leeds salute is now a well established part of our culture, to do it make a fist with your right arm place the thumb edge of the fist on your heart, extend your arm fully outwards and slightly upwards. The salute is used when we get a corner kick and is accompanied but a low grunting LEEDS LEEDS LEEDS. It has sometimes been used to ascertain whether someone is friend or foe at away games.
