I'm A Scouser
I'm a scouser, Liverpool born and bred.
A 50's child, and in '65 I became a red!
I've lived in prefabs to high rise blocks.
I've seen us recover from all the knocks.
I'm a scouser, brought up on the Fab 4.
Every record went to number 1 for sure!
Then I discovered Doddy on our old TV.
A childhood hero, and still a hero to me.
School days, not the best I have to say.
I had no ambition, fun stood in the way!
Didn't worry much about levels or grade.
As long as T.Rex sold more than Slade!
I'm a scouser, over the river often sailed.
Our waterfront, rightly worldwide hailed.
I visit our lovely parks, Sefton tops my list.
So many beautiful things not to be missed!
I'm a scouser, 2 tragedies to our name.
Whatever happened to the 'beautiful game'?
The cause of one, we hold our hands up.
No person should die in pursuit of the Cup.
The other tragedy at Hillsborough in '89. We fought hard for justice as not our crime. '96' lives officially lost on that semi final day. But there's been plenty more flowers to lay.
I'm a scouser, I've fell in love many times.
But more often than not, I misread the signs!
So that's a chapter, I consider incomplete.
Still on the look out before accepting defeat!
So that's part of my story, of this scouse lad.
Much more in the future, hopefully to add!
And whatever comes my way, right or wrong.
To this great City of mine I will always belong!
