John Lennon's name
For his hometown
And tho he left
With a smatter of
Broken hearts scattered
To never return
His heart didn't really stray that far
Wearing his Old school tie
On his last photographs
Showed the bonds held fast
And proves
You can take the Scouser
Out of Liverpool
But you can't take Liverpool
Out of the Scouser.
