Arthur Askey attended the Institute,
long before it became Sir Macca’s offshoot,
a 5' 2" breezy personality.
born a comedian his Scouse originality
endeared him to the hearts of the country.
With his mate Stinker Murdock
found himself on the Bandwagon of fame
buzzing about appearing on telly.
Big Hearted Arthur entertained the troops,
singing silly songs
as a pantomime dame.
One of the greats from Liverpool
he deserves to be in this Hall of Fame,
