We all set out from Dublin town, from Calton and from
County Down, Cork, New York and Glasgow from Boston and Chicago
We all got on the aeroplanes and all Italia's greatest names,
landed up in Portugal to take on Glasgow Celtic,
Everything was going to plan, when Glasgow Celtic beat Inter Milan.
It being on the 25th of May, the kids all had a holiday,
the sun was shining down and all the windows they were open,
Some watched in the Squirrel bar, in Lynch's and in
Benny's bar, some watched in the Traders and some in Derry Treanors,
everyone was a Celtic fan, when Glasgow Celtic beat Inter Milan.
Celtic went out to attack, but soon got caught out at the back,
up stepped big Mazzola to slot away a penalty
Celtic rallied to the call but Sarti coped well with the ball,
and Inter were so fortunate to be one up at half time,
They said "catch us if you can" when Glasgow Celtic beat Inter Milan.
The second half got under way, the Celts put on a great
display of attacking football that made Inter run for cover,
Gemmell brought us level and the cup was surely settled
when a shot from Bobby Murdoch was deflected in by Chalmers,
Now the score line read 2-1, when Glasgow Celtic beat Inter Milan.
We all went out to celebrate, the bus came down the
Gallowgate, then on to Celtic Park to hail a lorry load of heroes,
The European Cup displayed, the Coatbridge Harp and
Flute band played, and everyone was singing "we're the champions of Europe,
And Jock Stein is the man, when Glasgow Celtic beat Inter Milan.
It's over 30 years ago, now we watch the game on video,
Bertie Auld and Willie O will sign your scarf before you go,
Down in Baird's bar for the crack, it brings the memories
flooding back, when all of Europe realised the cup belonged in Paradise,
We sang through the land, when Glasgow Celtic beat Inter Milan.
