Tanks at the marble staircase

187

Tank engines growl.
Their long journey is over.
The doors fly open, marble glistens in the evening sun.
But where are the guards? No one is here.
A child on a donkey could conquer this castle.

    Once upon a time there was a tavern

     

    Were we used to raise a glass or two

     

    Remember how we laughed away the hours

     

    Think of all the great things we will do

     

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya hun

     

    Die Die Die

     

    Die Die Die Die Die Die

     

     

    Then the busy years went rushing by us

     

    We lost our starry notions on the way

     

    If by chance I’d see you in the tavern

     

    We’d smile one another and we’d say

     

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya hun

     

    Die Die Die

     

    Die Die Die Die Die Die

     

     

    Just a night I stood before the tavern

     

    Nothing seemed the way it used to be

     

    In the glass I saw strange reflection

     

    Was that lonely woman really me?

     

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya hun

     

    Die Die Die

     

    Die Die Die Die Die Die

     

     

    Through the door they came familiar laughter

     

    I saw your face and heard you call my name

     

    Oh my friend we’re older but no wiser

     

    For in our hearts the dreams are still the same

     

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

     

    Die Die Die Die Die Die Die Die Ya Hun

    All they have is their chequered history – and that’s about to be altered dramatically.

     

     

    Ten years from now the person who wrote that will be writing about a club called Glasgow Rangers that used to play at Ibrox Park … ‘dignity’, blah, blah … ‘welcome the chase’, blah, blah … ‘proud traditions’, ect, ect, ect…

    We need your faith and hostility

     

    to be certain of a change

     

    How could you ever recover from?

     

    Forever recover from this prejudice

    Can tanks go upstairs?

     

    Come oot, come oot yer numbers up!

     

    Ken Wood I can see you trying to blend in!

  6. paul67,

     

     

    for you to repeat this phrase again you must be very confident indeed.

    Paul67

     

     

    I seem to remember that you had the Tanks parked on the Marble Staircase once before buy they were repelled.

     

     

    Now we know that that particlualr fightback used nefarious tactics and when the truth is known maybe the tanks will be followed by bulldozers.

     

     

    Hail! Hail!

     

     

    Oh when the tanks…go rollin in…..

    Point taken re-deadline, I was being facetious more than anything, don’t find the MSM trustworthy somehow;-)

     

    It would be more than surprising that Green would put money into a company that is expected to go into liquidation. He’s not a fool and wouldn’t throw money away. They really only have week or so to go then. Good.

    All our times have come

     

    Here but now they’re gone

     

    Seasons don’t fear the reaper

     

    Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain..we can be like they are

     

    Come on baby…don’t fear the reaper

     

    Baby take my hand…don’t fear the reaper

     

    We’ll be able to fly…don’t fear the reaper

     

    Baby I’m your man…

     

     

    Valentine is done

     

    Here but now they’re gone

     

    Romeo and Juliet

     

    Are together in eternity…Romeo and Juliet

     

    40,000 men and women everyday…Like Romeo and Juliet

     

    40,000 men and women everyday…Redefine happiness

     

    Another 40,000 coming everyday…We can be like they are

     

    Come on baby…don’t fear the reaper

     

    Baby take my hand…don’t fear the reaper

     

    We’ll be able to fly…don’t fear the reaper

     

    Baby I’m your man…

     

     

    Love of two is one

     

    Here but now they’re gone

     

    Came the last night of sadness

     

    And it was clear she couldn’t go on

     

    Then the door was open and the wind appeared

     

    The candles blew then disappeared

     

    The curtains flew then he appeared…saying don’t be afraid

     

    Come on baby…and she had no fear

     

    And she ran to him…then they started to fly

     

    They looked backward and said goodby…she had become like they are

     

    She had taken his hand…she had become like they are

     

    Come on baby…don’t fear the reaper

    Apologies to all true Celtic supporters.

    I guess the original doubting Thomas was related to me I want to believe that they are really finished but Ive seen to many funny handshakes followed by strange happennings to think this will be any different.The end game is and has allways been about getting a newco Rangers into the SPL from the off with the creditors being left behind with nothing to show but there losses.So excuse me if I dont get to excited this show has a long way to run yet.H.H.

    8th of June does look like the highlight. I will need a rather large carry-oot that night…

     

     

    I truly hope so, cause that will be a great BIRTHDAY present for ME!

  23. I am concerned that the level of expectation is high today.

     

    I will be surprised if tonight’s documentary reveals anything we don’t already know.

     

    The question is what will be the fallout for the general public and the large swathe of Rangers fans who are hoping to reemerge through a CVA.

     

    Will it have any effect on voting at SPL?

     

    Will heads roll at Hampden?

     

    More importantly for us, will it provide us with a cast iron case to exit the SPL?

     

    I sincerely hope so.

    After tonight’s BBC doc what do you expect to happen?

     

     

    All I can see happening is …….the same old, same old from the SPL/SFA.

     

     

    Any word on the big tax case hitting soon?

     

     

    PS, great away support last night, well-done all that went down.
