Jimmy Jimmy Johnstone on the ball…

He was Born in Viewpark 1944
The Celts were soon knocking upon his door

He became the one the fans adore

He had every defender on the floor

and he loved the Celtic with all his heart and soul
He came from School with his flame red hair
A Celt through and through with out a care

When he was on the ball the fans would stare

At his skill and cheek and his natural flare

and he loved the Celtic with all his heart and soul

I would sing, wee Jimmy Johnstone on the wing
Jimmy Jimmy Johnstone on the ball, in our hearts he was best of all

I would sing, wee Jimmy Johnstone lord of the wing

Jimmy Jimmy Johnstone we’ll not forget, hey Jimmy will we see your likes again.

His first game was March 1963
When he played his first game for his favourite team

He was proud to wear the hoops of green

He was the greatest Celt there’s ever been

and he loved the Celtic with all my heart and soul

He drove Jock mad with banter and crack,
He never would defend always attack

He would beat his man he had the knack

Bravery was an actual fact

and he loved the Celtic with all my heart and soul
