Liverpool Birthday

(an Acrostic)


Let us be happy; let us be proud
Itís a wonderful city, richly endowed,
Vibrant and virile. Be part of the crowd
Eager to salute its eight hundredth year.

Radiant, rakish, robust, renowned
Port on the Mersey. Its history profound.
Open your mouth, let praises resound:
One and all hail our eight hundredth year.

Live on forever, Oh, great Liverpool.
