My Liverpool

Liverpool-My Liverpool
A place I'd never swap
Tho' the ignoramus put us down
we're still there at the top
So many times we've been knocked down
from the blitz to modern day
yet with fairness, thought and sound debate
we've always found our way
We've gave the world so very much
that's travelled far and wide
and those we've touched will surely know
we wear our cap with pride
From works of art to architects
from music to comedy
From industry to famous folk
They're there for all to see
For more than sixty seven years
I've lived a fruitful time
Happy in my Liverpool
This native town of mine....
