The revolution will not be celebrated

You will not be able to stay in your seat, Bhoy
You will not be able to stand up, wave your fist and enjoy your victory
You will not be able to lose yourself on trebles and zombieskelping
Skip out for beer during half-time
Because the revolution will not be celebrated

The revolution will not be celebrated

The revolution will not be brought to you by Ibrox
In two halves without commercial interruption
The revolution will not show you pictures of Dave King
Blowing his own trumpet and leading an AGM with Stewart Robertson
Steven Gerrard and Gary McAllister to eat
Humble pie left by Brendan Rodgers’ trebles

The revolution will not be celebrated

The revolution will be brought to you by the Sky Sports and
will not star Chris Sutton and John Hartson or Eilidh Barbour and Darrell Currie
The revolution will not give you a red card appeal
The revolution will not get rid of you being the best
The revolution will not make you look five millions pounds
better, because The revolution will not be celebrated, Bhoy
There will be no pictures of you and Jock Stein
Holding the European Cup on an open top bus
Or trying to slide that jumbotron into a supporters bus
SMSM will not predict the league winner correctly or the players to watch next season

The revolution will not be celebrated

There will be no pictures of Police Scotland manhandling
Hoops in an instant replay
There will be no pictures of Celtic fans being
Stewarded out of Celtic Park effectively following a new process
There will be no coverage of
Rod Stewart singing Grace on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show in a
Green and white hooped jumpsuit that he had been saving
For just the right occasion
Wes Foderingham, Lee Wallace and
Graham Dorrans will no longer be so damned relevant
and Tims will not care if anyone at Ibrox finally gets capped for Scotland for the first time because Bhoys
will be in the street celebrating another treble

The revolution will not be celebrated

There will be no decent highlights on Sportscene
and no pictures of foodbank collections outside Celtic Park and
Dermot Desmond blowing his nose
The theme song will not be written by Jay Z, Paulo Nutini
nor sung by Bobby Gillespie, Snoop Dogg,
Noel Gallagher, or The View

The revolution will not be celebrated

The revolution will not be right back after a memo
Revealed by the D**** R***** from Police Scotland about Celtic player’s behaviour
You will not have to worry about laps of honour in your own stadium
Hoopy the Huddle Hound on matchdays, or Gerry McCulloch Tweeting #onlyinscotland
The revolution will not go better with Coke
The revolution will not fight the germs that cause sectrarianism
The revolution WILL put you in the driving seat forever
The revolution will not be celebrated
WILL not be celebrated, WILL NOT BE CELEBRATED
The revolution will be no re-run Bhoys
The revolution will be live

Hail! Hail!

Stevie Mac

With special thanks to Gil Scott-Heron (son of Celtic’s Gil Heron)
