Collection of Irish Song Lyrics
In My Liverpool Home
In my Liverpool Home, In my Liverpool Home
We speak with an accent exceedingly rare,
Meet under a statue exceedingly bare,
And if you want a Cathedral, we've got one to spare
In my Liverpool Home
I was born in Liverpool, down by the docks
Me Religion was catholic, occupation hard knocks
At stealing from lorries I was adept,
And under an overcoat each night we slept
Way back in the forties the world had gone mad
Mister Hitler threw at us everything that he had
When the smoke and dust had all cleared from the air
"Thank God" said me da that the Pier Head's still there!
When I grew up I met Bridget McGann
she said "Your not much but I'm needin' a man"
"For I want sixteen kids and a house out in Speke"
Well the spirit was willing but the flesh it was weak
There's a place in dis city were the nits de wear clogs
They've six millon kids and ten million dogs
De play tick with hatchets and I'll tell you no lie
a man's a coward if he has more than one eye.
The Green and the Orange have battled for years
They've given us some laughs and they've given us some tears
But Scousers don't want a heavenly reward
They just want the Green Card to get into Fords
The Dockers Umbrella has bitten the dust
You might buy a Meccanno, no charge for the rust
Scottie Road is a legend now past away
But you can go down to Yateses and drink all the day.
"What's your religion?' a feller once said
so I climbed in me 'wellies' and I Kung Fooed his head
"Oy! hold on!" he said, "I'm not starting a nark"
"Do you worship at Anfield or Goodison Park?"
