Where do I start, how far back do I go,
the City of my birth, the 2008 show.
My City now vibrant, expectant, fulfilled,
desires of the past, present pathways newly tilled.
The soul of my City a rainbowful wrap,
attracts worldwide visitors who need to come back.
We deserve recognition for all we've achieved,
the Beatles, three graces and both football teams.
Our humour and culture each end of the rule,
thank god I'm a Scouser I belong to Liverpool.
