He wears his heart on his sleeve, the four leaf clover on his chest

And he’ll go down in history as one of Celtic’s best

He’s played against them all, Juventus and Milan

Right down to the core, a Lurgan born Celtic man

 

(Chorus) And Neil Lennon, You’ll Never Walk Alone

Neil Lennon take your seat on Celtic’s throne

Neil Lennon you belong in Paradise

And Neil Lennon, above them you will rise

 

And when it comes to matchday you’re on the frontline

Jumping up like Martin reminds us of a good time

With Larsson and Sutton putting fear in the blue

You’re bringing back the thunder like the day we won 6-2

 

(Chorus)

 

Talk about your winning, your success in the sport

While they’re telling lies for the papers to report

And we’ll be right behind you, there’s worldwide support

And that goes for the two Bhoys Niall McGinn and Paddy McCourt

 

(Chorus)

 

Well I could write another verse or two, to this man’s song

But we all know and love his character so strong

So on behalf of every Celtic fan I’d like to say

We love you Neil Lennon from Cork City to Botany Bay

 

(Chorus)

If you have any particularly special Celtic game that you attended and you’d like to write about, we’d love to hear from you. Just send over your memories and stories of the game to editor@thecelticstar.co.uk

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
