The Mersey

Liverpool is laughter without being cruel
Liverpool is being clever without acting the fool
Liverpool is being caring just because we are
Liverpool is friendship and handshakes from afar

A sea of people makes our Mersey flow
Moving with time the city breathes and grows
Like a baby's chuckle in Lime Street station
Liverpool isn't easily a forgotten destination

Liverpool sings from the dockside bars
Where the Liver Birds play electric guitars
Up to the parks where games are played
Liverpool fizzes strong as home-made lemonade
