she walks thru govan like a queen
the proudest girl youve ever seen
and as she passed working chaps
respectfully they touch their caps

It follows ,..

In bus or Tram there on their feet
begging her to take their seat
At night in pubs they raise a glass
in honour of the little Lass
This toast, in tones of awe, is said -
.. The nurse that makes Big Kich's bed !!

:confused:

Dunno if its a reference to Don Kitchenbrand but thats my best guess :D

The good old days when we were not social outcasts

So much has changed eh?

Can you imagine Lobey Dosser or the McFlannels (I wonder if The_Gub remembers the latter of those two) being Rangers fans in this day and age?

My old man was talking about the McFlannels just recently having seen an old book with them in it. I wasn't surprised to find out the were Gers fans but it would never happen now.

Its friggin unbelievable and sad how much things have changed but we (ie our community) have only got ourselves to blame

Can you imagine the hysteria from Mr Mhank and his mhates if that were to happen today ?

Its just a pity the blue sea of Ibrox hadnt been written back then :)

The obituary for the devoted Orangeman would be frowned upon now :(

Bring back the McFlannels:D :D :D When older folk first heard their voices on the then new fangled tape recorders the comment was always the same-"You sound just like one of they McFlannels"

A wee bump for this,

The devoted Orangeman today would be simply considered an out and out bigot !!

Correct.

The past generation and ourselves are to blame for this though.

The Mhanks chipping away and whinning has paid them dividends.

We have a long road back my friend.

Splendid stuff, as ever.

Reckon they bastardised the song as so many seem proud to do today?

I rather doubt it.

'Follow Follow we will follow Rangers', my late father used to say was the only FOOTBALL song that was regularly sung at any games back then.

The mhanks would sing Irish stuff (theres a surprise) and it was often the case that they would cause all sorts of disorder.

Threads like these are the bizzo.

Reminders of the days before the name of Rangers had been allowed to be sh it on by our enemies...days when we were loved for what we were.
