They call it Liverpool

Our heritage, our culture, our city, full of pride
800 historic years
in the heart of Merseyside

The buildings and their splendour
standing tall and proud
the city centre buzzing
with a happy, witty crowd

Our ancestors they spoiled us
creating such a scene
it makes us stop and wonder
how times must have been

I often sit and think
how my ancestors survived
the slave trade, 2 world wars
and still stood tall with pride

So here it is my city
so vibrent and so cool
this city that I love so much
and they call it LIVERPOOL
