‘SAVE OUR SILKMEN’ – A song for Macclesfield Town FC. Listen to the demo!

A heartfelt song for my beloved football club, Macclesfield Town, who continue to be going through great hardship after having been forcibly removed from the EFL via a hefty points deduction and subsequently being ordered to wind up in the high court after accumulating a debt of £500,000. The next deadly blow that will be dealt will be expulsion from the Vanarama National League if a miracle doesn’t happen before the 12th October.

As I only finished the song a couple days a go I have only had time to record a rough demo version. The final recording will, among other things, feature more vocals in the chorus to fill it out as at the moment it is all a bit high pitched! But in the meantime you can check out the demo:

It is hoped this song can help galvanise the fans, spread awareness of the Silkmen’s plight, while also raising money for  The Silkmen Suppoters Trust to help save the club / start a phoenix club.

If there are any other Silkmen fans out there who would be interested in helping out with the release of this single please do get in touch. Some of the things we definitely need include:

Help with promotion

We’ve set up a Facebook event in order to coordinate people to stream and download it on release day when it is decided. Not expecting it to get number 1 in the charts…but you never know! More information to follow, in the mean time, #SAVEOURSILKMEN!

LYRICS:

Standing London Road in the sun
Whistle blows and the game has begin
Listening to the Star Lane End drum
Got the feeling a goal’s going to come

Blue and white fills our eyes and our ears
Joining in the with the ‘ooo’s and the cheers
Maccy Maccy we want you to score
Oh Maccy Maccy it’s you we adore

We won’t stop singing
Won’t stop fighting
Until we SAVE OUR SILKMEN

Keep the faith
Against all odds
We’ll battle on to SAVE OUR SILKMEN

SAVE OUR SILKMEN

Pie and pint at the stroke of half time
The fact there’s no ‘tommy’ sauce is a crime
‘Tannoy crackles with rival game news
As long as Crewe, Alty, and Stockport lose!

Beat the keeper with Roary the Lion
Has the kids lining up with massive smiles
Constantly punching above our weight
This is why Macclesfield Town is so great!

We won’t stop singing
Won’t stop fighting
Until we SAVE OUR SILKMEN

Keep the faith
Against all odds
We’ll battle on to SAVE OUR SILKMEN
SAVE OUR SILKMEN

We won’t stop singing
Won’t stop fighting
Until we SAVE OUR SILKMEN

Keep the faith
Against all odds
We’ll battle on to SAVE OUR SILKMEN

We won’t stop singing
Won’t stop fighting
Until we SAVE OUR SILKMEN

‘Clock’s run down
No time to waste
It’s now or never, SAVE OUR SILKMEN
SAVE OUR SILKMEN, SAVE OUR SILKMEN.
