One Day in September

Well, you put a lot in and you worked real hard
There were days when you tried, there were days when you stopped
Trying to please the crowd, when they're unforgiving
There are easier ways to make a living
Well, you've come a long way since the start of things
When you've seen the joy, that hard work brings
You've made us cry, you've made us smile
You're in the front, now it's all worthwhile
 
Cause there's one day in September
We want to remember
There isn't any doubting
We'll be in the shouting
Football's such a part of this whole town
And we know that you won't let us down
 
Well, there's nothing better than a nice good win
There's no second prize if you let 'em in
You gotta give it your best, then give again
Out there, there's no such thing as friends
Well, we've been our best, we've been our worst
When we do it right, well, we'll come on first
Gotta get in there, and make 'em sad
We'll hit 'em hard, take the flag
 
Cause there's one day in September
We want to remember
There isn't any doubting
We'll be in the shouting
Football's such a part of this whole town
(O such a part of this whole town)
And we know that you won't let us down
 
Cause there's one day in September
In there and fight
Cause there's one day in September
Show 'em your might
Cause there's one day in September
Don't let 'em in
Football's such a part of this whole town
(Football's such a part of this whole town)
And we know that you won't let us down
 
Cause there's one day in September
In there and fight
Cause we've waited till the finals
Show 'em your might
Cause there's one day in September
Don't let 'em in
Footy's such a part of this whole town
(Football's such a part of this whole town)
And we know that you won't let us down
