A Liverpool Poet, is what I want to be!

Of all the things I could dream to be
A footballer rock star
A sailor of seas
A pirate an outlaw
A dreamer of dreams
A Liverpool Poet
That's what I want to be

Of all the jobs I could study to be
A doctor a lawyer
Accountant? not me
A jazz singer
Lounge lizard move smoothily
No! A Liverpool Poet
Is what I want to be

Of all the wishes that I wish for me
Not riches not glory
Not fame for you see
A pen and some paper
Three Graces for free
A Liverpool poet
Yes! that really is me.
