The songs of Leeds United --> Track 11

We Are Leeds

Leeds have had their "ups and downs" through the history, and most songs have been released when the team had their "ups".

However, this song is from the beguinning of the 1990's, when the good times returned to Elland Road. The Crew released an exremely catchy pop dance song, "We are Leeds", early 1990. When you hear it for the first time, you perhaps think that it is influenced by "World in Motion" from New Orders, but as a matter of fact that record was issued 5 months later!

There is also recorded a "disco-mix" of this song, whithout any lyrics - except for the very first line.

(Sampled commentry:)All-white strip
Fa-famous all-white strip
All-white strip
Fa-famous all-white strip

11 men, with just one heart
With just one dream (dream)
No one can stop
This great white machine
(Fa-famous all-white strip)

Rising again
Like a pheonix from the flame (flame)
Run 'til we drop
We take the knocks, and feel no pain

We are Leeds, we are Leeds, we are Leeds
We are Leeds, we are Leeds, we are Leeds
O-o-o-oh

We'll make our stand
At the top we'll stake our claim
Throughout the land
Everyone will know our name

We are Leeds, we are Leeds, we are Leeds
We are Leeds, we are Leeds, we are Leeds
O-o-o-oh

We've had our ups and downs
That's all part of the game
But we just love to hear the roar
As United open up the score

(Commentary:) "...it's Bobby Davison, and he just put it there for Leeds United. They swept their way to the other end. Good move down the right, started by Strachan. The cross came in... the Newcastle defenders, really I think were standing still."

(2nd Commentary:) "Tell 'em Dennis, how good Leeds are"

We are Leeds, we are Leeds, we are Leeds
We are Leeds, we are Leeds, we are Leeds
O-o-o-oh
(Repeat chorus to fade)
