My Mersey

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Merchant ship cranes
unloading their grain
Confederate ships built at Cammell Lairds
opposite sits the Liver Birds

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Ferries glide across the Mersey
supporters wear their red or blue jerseys
high above the Albert dock
cathedral bells peal over their flocks

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The world’s greatest seafaring city
land of the Beatles and birth of the sixties
today’s excitement is its calm reflection
designer walks and regeneration

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 New Brighton to Seacombe a fair old stride
a pint at Egremont by the tide
Fort Perch Rock out to Liverpool Bay
to the west, West Kirby and old Hoylake

Notes

When it comes to Liverpool (my city) its two things … The Beatles and Footy. There may be only one line here …… but those fans resonate like our cathedral bells
