The Tale of Johnny Giles (Leeds United)

I know a little Irishman
Who gets the fans excited
I'm glad he left old Manchester
And he came to Leeds United
 
'Cos Johnny Giles of Ireland
Is the general of United
And if Don Revie had his way
Then Johnny would be knighted
 
When Johnny takes a penalty
The goalie looks quite sorry
And Billy Bremner dare not look
But he really needn't worry
 
He puts the ball down on the spot
The goalkeeper is sweatin'
He does his sort of an Irish gig
The ball is in the nettin'
 
It's Johnny Giles of Ireland
And the general of United
And if Don Revie had his way
Then Johnny would be knighted
(spoken: Oh yes, he sure would)
 
It must be all the stew he eats
That gives him his endurance
'Cos if you meet him in the street
He'll sell you some insurance
 
Oh Johnny Giles of Ireland
The general of United
And if Don Revie had his way
Then Johnny would be knighted
 
And if Don Revie had his way
Then Johnny would be knighted
 
(spoken: Can you imagine?
"Arise, Sir John - the popper-in of penalties!")
