The Liverpool Empire


Grand auld dame of British theatre
If those walls could talk eh girl
What stories would be told
Laurel and Hardy
Judy Garland
Frank Sinatra
All came calling
Even a local band
In cuban heeled boots
Stepped upon your stage
To take the applause
Although their songs
Were drowned out by the screams
Of girls
Oh what stories if walls could talk.
