Down in the Valley

Down in the Valley
(Difford/Tilbrook)

My grandparents lived in Delafield Road
Right across from the Valley
And when ever Charlton were playing at home
The sound of the match would carry
As I grew older I went to the ground
And joined in with the singing
I became one voice in a very big sound
It’s so great now that we’re winning
So when Saturday comes
There’s no time for glums
There’s no time for losers at all
And when the Robins sing
It’s a happening thing
There’s no time to take your eye off the ball

Down in the Valley
One Two Three Four Five
It’s in the net
So say goodbye

Down in the Valley where the Robins wait
Drums keep beating
As a new dawn breaks
The team’s in the tunnel
And emotions run high
We’re back in the running
Our dreams are alive

Down in the Valley
With the Mums and Dads
Kids in the red shirts and the woollen hats
The tribe is meeting in the covered stands
This is the passion of the Charlton fans
It’s another great reason why you’d want to be
In south east London with the family

At the end of the day
We’re going to roll up our sleeves
It’s a game of two halves
If you know what we mean
We are over the moon
Or as sick as a pup
And it looks like from here
The only way is up
