The Liver Birds: the Key to the City

Where can you find two copper birds
That shine bright under the golden sun
That stand still for the view of eager eyes
And never disappoint to satisfy

They never fly away in the face of danger
Or abandon their true home
They are forever loyal and a part of us
An icon that brings us joy and hope

Liverpool, is where you can find these birds
These birds that give our city life
One bird looks over the River Mersey
While the other watches over our cities life

And if these birds ever fly away
Our city would exist no more
So give thanks to the two Liver Birds
That are the key to our cities door
