Thistle (Til My Dying Day)

When I was just a young boy
My old man did say to me
It's time to tell you about
The great P.T.F.C.

I'd heard about the Glasgow Celtic
And the Rangers, and the Bully Wee..
But they all meant Sweet F.A. To me

We'll forever follow thistle
Over land and sea
From Metz to Methill
Follow Thistle on to victory

From Peter 'Ma Ba' McKennan
To Neily Duffy and his back heeled goal
A Tommy Ewing cross
A Jackie Husband throw

I'll always be thankful
To my old man, for showing me the way
Now I'll be Thistle
'Til my dyin' day
