once a scouser alway a rebel
Once a scouse, always a rebel
Life is short but also compact
it is only yesterday I lived in Liverpool
had a café in Wavertree and a house in
My clients where workers in the factories
around, they stopped coming when
the workshops closed down, by the party
the enemy of the people came to power.
The business went badly but I was lucky
to sell it to someone who thought
the business would pick up, it didn`t.
the conservative party was a war and
crushed the unions few of us fought back.
I went to live in Portugal a country that
also struggles with poverty but the poor
has dignity and the weather is mostly sunny.
