Cultural Nous

Two thousand and seven is our Birthday year
Eight centuries gone and we're still the gear
And since the Charter of King John
The Liver Birds promised to never be gone

So they watch the cranes all doing a jig
With JCBs from the very big dig
For a City of Culture they've more work to do
As motorists sit in a very long queue

Cos' a Capital City of Culture is great
And that's what we'll be in 2008
Giving the world a taste of our scouse
Serving up Liverpool's cultural nous
