The Silence of the Liver Bird

I am the eyes of my City, you think I am silent and still. Without a voice, until!
I spread my wings, silent and free
With open arms I greet thee
I am not lost or forlorn
With each coming year I am reborn
Honored to be the face of Liverpool I have had more publicity as a Bird than a Beatle, I am loved love me do!
And you know I love you
I am recognised far and wide
People wear my T-Shirts with greatness and pride
My eyes are open, observant to this City of mine
guarding all
Our continued rise shall never fall
As time fades beneath my feet
Barefoot to shoes on feet
I am guarding you all night and day
Silence is Golden
This Bird is here to stay.
