It's easy to be sentimental
about Liverpool
a pub on every corner,
everyone a comedian,
a musician,
a footballer
The World in One City.

It's easy to be critical
of Liverpool
the litter on every corner,
everyone on the dole
on the rob
on the sick.
Poverty in the City,

But still it is home.
I have been away,
and I have come back.
Liverpool has dwindled,
But now it grows strong again.

So, come to Liverpool
Enjoy our pubs and our parks,
our theatres and our clubs.
Your children will thrive in our schools.
You can feel safe on our streets.
Life in our City.
