The sun shines brightly at The Hawthorns and we say
The heavens open and it pours and pours soggy
New gaffer, new style, new hope and more BOING! BOING!
Excitement, atmosphere, goals flying in
Hey, BOING! BOING!
Dare I say the P league is looming large
Confidence is high on-and-off the pitch
Come on BOING! BOING!
We're all in it together through thick and thin
YESSS BOING! BOING!
JT has nice footwork, Jara South American flair
Olsson is a giant on the pitch and ASA as a man
Captain Scott Carson keeps goal with safe hands
With the boys upfront including Moore and Cox
The ball just isn’t safe in the opponent’s box
The squad is strong with these and the rest
All bursting to play and give off their best
I can sense something happening down at B71
Something special under Roberto Di Matteo has begun
Beers having been drunk
and burgers all scoffed
Its time to start singing
With arms and scarves aloft
Get yourself prepared
It's five minutes to three
I want you to scream and shout
For the Baggies with me
Roberto's team is on the pitch
willing to give it their best
To play their own game
not worried by the rest.
Di Matteo’s barmy army
going up and away
Dispatching all the opposition
marching on and on till May
