In celebration of York's appearance at the 2017 Buildbase FA Trophy Final, where they'll play Macclesfield Town.
Filmed with an iPhone (by the missus). **See below for lyrics** Tribute to / reworking of Coolio's legendary Gangsta's Paradise (download the original from http://apple.co/2p4p5Mb).
Big thanks to BBC York for the commentary clip and @yorkcitynews for the clip from Lincoln. And a huge thanks to Sam for the mic and tweaks.

LYRICS
City walking through the valley of the shadow of death
See the table in the paper trying not to feel depressed
Cos we’ve been tumbling and falling so long that
Even my momma thinks we’re off to Conference North

But we ain’t ever been the types to just desert ‘em
City fans giving up, you know that’s unheard of
No one feels nicely, seeing us thrashed by Guiseley
But we’ll always back the lads who cross that line for York

I really hate to see us in the Conference though
Our Football League dreams went up in some bitter smoke
Still, we’ve got Gary Mills back, so you know we’re gonna be right
On his knees on the turf, arms aloft, won at Wembley twice

Been having a rubbish time
But we’re back to Wembley paradise
Five times in just eight years
Playing at our Wembley paradise
I really hope we don’t go down before we get to Wembley paradise
But just Macclesfield to beat
For another Wembley paradise

Look at the situation, City are facing
Could be relegation twice, and that isn’t feeling nice
But we’ve done blooming well in the Trophy
And 2012 memories have got us chasing dreams

I’m a York City fool, with Wembley on my mind
Got a twenty in my hand for a tea and a pie (how much?)
I’m a loved up Minsterman, singing bangers
And yeah we might be going down but let’s postpone the anger, cool?

2012 feels like a lifetime away
But I’m still York til I die, yeah, what can I say
I’ve seen three Wembley wins, now will I live to see them make it four?
The way it’s been going I don’t know

Tell me why can’t why, YCFC
Do as well in the league as in the Trophy?

Been having a rubbish time
But we’re back to Wembley paradise
Back on the Metropolitan Line
To take us to our Wembley paradise
I really hope we don’t go down before we get to Wembley paradise
But just Macclesfield to beat
For another Wembley paradise

Started by beating Worcester, and then we won at Harlow
Next up it was Nuneaton, beat Brackley, semi-final
Extra time at Lincoln, the he wasn’t looking
But the lino gave the penno, Fenwick scored and now we’re cooking

So 21st of May, another Wembley Way walk
Next up the men of silk, but how can they beat York?
I guess they can’t, I guess they won’t, Parkin’s up front
That’s why we know Macc Town are out of luck fool

Been having a rubbish time
But we’re back to Wembley paradise
Fifth time in just eight years
Heading to our Wembley paradise
I really hope we don’t go down before we get to Wembley paradise
Then it’s Macclesfield to beat
For another Wembley paradise

It’s just mad that we, YCFC
Are ending this season, at Wembley
Sadly Blair’s not there
And neither’s Dean Kiely
But let’s go lift the cup
And next year win the league

Big up Jeff Miller (repeat to fade)
