Which captured the a world with
Itís own brand of Beat and Rock.
The Liver Birds overlook the Mersey
Where once fortunes were made
Landing slaves and Cotton and
Where Maggie May plied her trade.
Near Penny Lane there was a cafe
Serving magnificent breakfast fry
You could sit and read The Times
Or watch the world flow gently by
Home of Paddyís Wigwam,
Another Cathedral as well,
Historic Red Rose City
With many a tale to tell.
Centre of Music and Comedy,
City of myth and rumour,
With its own distinctive twang
And its own brand of humour.

Nicknamed Dublinís Backyard,
Nestled on the Irish Sea Shore.
City of dreams and hopes
Where the world and his wife
Could ship across the Atlantic
For chance of a different life.

From an Internationally diverse brew.
