    LIVERPOOL - [SO GREAT THEY NAMED IT ONCE] by Jegsy Dodd

    EVERY LINE YOU SEE UPON MY WEATHER-BEATEN FACE
    HAS SOMEHOW BEEN CREATED BY THIS MOST AMAZING PLACE
    THE LAUGHTER LINES AND FROWNS HAVE FOUGHT A BATTLE ON MY SKIN
    THE FROWNS HAVE LEFT THEIR MARK BUT THE SMILES ARE GONNA WIN

    THAT ROUGH VERNACULAR IS QUITE SPECTACULAR
    ITS THE WAY THAT SCOUSERS SPEAK
    SCOUSE WAS AN ACCENT JUST WAITING TO HAPPEN
    I THINK ITS CALLED UNIQUE

    AND NOW WE'RE BACK IN VOGUE
    WE KNOW IT WONT BE FOR LONG
    LIKE A DRUNKEN UNCLE AT A FUNERAL
    SOMETHINGS BOUND TO GO HORRIBLY WRONG
    BECAUSE THATS THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
    THIS IS WHO WE ARE
    WARM BUT CHILLED AND HIGHLY SKILLED
    BUT NOTHING TO LAR-DEE-DAR

    AND FOR YEARS THEY LAUGHED BEHIND OUR BACKS
    THE JOURNOS WITH THEIR VEILED ATTACKS
    NEVER MISSED A CHANCE TO TWIST THE FACTS
    BUT LOOK WHOS LAUGHING NOW?

    SEE THE RIVER, WATCH THE TIDE
    FEEL THE PASSION, FEEL THE PRIDE
    I'VE TRAVELLED THE GLOBE FAR AND WIDE
    BUT MY HEART REMAINS ON MERSEYSIDE

    I KNOW WE'RE FAR FROM PERFECT
    PERFECTION WAS NEVER THE CASE
    WE LIKE TO GO A LITTLE MAD SOMETIMES
    THAT'S THE BEAUTY OF THIS PLACE

    OH MARGARET HILDA THATCHER, IT MUST PAIN YOU TO SEE US NOW
    REMEMBER US? YOU HATED US, WHEN WE REFUSED TO LIE DOWN
    BUT THAT GRITTY OLD CITY IS NOW SITTING PRETTY ITS THE LIVER BIRDS WHO TAKE A BOW
    MARGARET HILDA THATCHER - LOOK WHO'S LAUGHING NOW

    BUT LETS KEEP IT IN PROPORTION
    WITH A LITTLE WORD OF CAUTION

    THE CITY THEY TRIED TO NULIFY
    AND SOMETIMES USED TO CRUCIFY
    NOW THEY WANT TO SANCTIFY
    AND EVEN TRY TO BEAUTIFY
    BUT THE MORE THEY TRY TO MODIFY
    STUPEFY AND PURIFY
    THE LESS WE WILL IDENTIFY
    THE CITY WE KNOW SO WELL

    WHERE LOYALTY'S NOT A THING OF THE PAST
    WHERE COLOURS ARE FIRMLY NAILED TO THE MAST
    800 YEARS OLD AND CHANGING FAST
    BUT WITH A PERSONALITY THAT'S BUILT TO LAST

    WE'VE LEARNT TO WAG OUR TAIL AGAIN
    INSTEAD OF BARKING AT PASSERS BY
    ITS A REPUTATION WE SEEM TO HAVE ACQUIRED
    WHICH WASN'T QUITE JUSTIFIED
    INFACT THE DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN WIDE
    FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO STEP INSIDE
    (HANG ON WHILE I TURN THE ALARM OFF, ONLY JOKING)

    WE COULD HAVE FILLED THE MERSEY A HUNDRED TIMES
    WITH TEARS THIS CITY'S SHED
    FROM THE POVERTY OF OUR FOREFATHERS
    TO HILLSBOROUGH'S FUTILE DEAD
    BUT BOY WE'VE HAD SOME LAUGHS ASWELL
    IT ALL GOES HAND IN HAND
    SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO BE LOST AT SEA
    TO APPRECIATE DRY LAND

    OH LIVERPOOL I LOVE YOU
    MORE THAT ANY TOWN ON EARTH
    WE'VE GOT MICHELIN STARS AND TRENDY BARS
    BUT WHAT ARE THEY REALLY WORTH?
    NOTHING WITHOUT THE PEOPLE
    IT'S THEY WHO MAKE THIS TOWN
    AN UNBROKEN SPIRIT AND OUTSPOKEN WITH IT
    IN FOR A PENNY AND PROFOUND

    AND WHAT ARE GONNA DO, WHEN THE CIRCUS LEAVES THE TOWN
    WILL WE FEEL A HINT OF SADNESS WHEN THEY PACK AWAY THE MERRY GO ROUND
    WHEN THE ACCOUNTANTS HAVE ACCOUNTED
    AND SURVEYORS HAVE SURVEYED
    AND THE DIRECTORS HAVE DIRECTED WHERE THE MONEY SHOULD BE PAID
    WHAT WILL BE LEFT?
    WILL IT BE JUST ME AND YOU, ME RED, YOU BLUE
    LYING ON AN UNMADE BED SAYING, "HOW WAS IT FOR YOU?"

    SANITIZED AND SUPERVISED, ORGANISED AND PATRONISED
    THE BEAUTIFICATION OF LIVERPOOL, SO GREAT THEY NAMED IT ONCE

    THE PEOPLE WHO RE-LOCATED HERE, TO SHOW US HOW IT'S DONE
    I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO TRIED TO TELL YOU, IT'S BEEN ALOT OF FUN
    BUT WE NEVER REALLY MET, WHILE THE SPIN WAS BEING SPUN
    FOR THE ONE YEAR MAKEOVER, THE ONE YEAR TAKEOVER, THE ONE YEAR HIT AND RUN
    YOU LEFT WITHOUT SAYING GOODBYE, THOUGH I DON'T REMEMBER SAYING HELLO
    MY INVITATION MUST HAVE BEEN LOST IN THE POST MANY MONTHS AGO
    SO WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
    AFTER EVERY BONE IN THIS CITY HAS BEEN HOLLOWED
    AND EVERY GOVERNMENT GRANT HAS BEEN SWALLOWED
    EVERY VOL-AU-VENT SCOFFED AND CASE OF WINE QUAFFED
    EVERY CITY COMMITTEE HAS WHACKED OUT THEIR KITTY
    WHATS LEFT?
    IT'LL BE US AGAINST THE WORLD AGAIN KID
    JUST LIKE IT WAS BEFORE, BEFORE THE DECORATORS MOVED IN
    JUST ME AND YOU, ME RED, YOU BLUE

    WE'LL GO DOWN TO THE DOCKSIDE AND STAND THERE ARM IN ARM
    AND STARE ACROSS THE RIVER AND LISTEN TO THE CALM
    WE'LL HEAR THE SWELLING CURRENT AND SEE THE RISING TIDE
    WE'LL FEEL THE STIRRING PASSION AND FEEL THAT SENSE OF PRIDE
    AND YOU'LL WHISPER IN MY EAR, AS WE STAND THERE SIDE BY SIDE
    YOU'LL SAY "THERE'S NO PLACE ON THIS PLANET, QUITE LIKE MERSEYSIDE"
