T. Duggins - I Wish I Was Back In Liverpool lyrics

rate me

I wish I was back in Liverpool

Liverpool town where I was born

Where there ain't no trees, no scented breeze

No fields of waving corn

But there's lots of girls with peroxide curls

And the black-and-tan flows free

Where there's six in a bed by the old pierhead

And it's Liverpool town for me

It's ten long years since I went away

To roam the wide world o'er

My very first trip in an old tramp ship

That was bound for Baltimore

I was ten days sick, I just couldn't stick

That bobbing up and down

So I told them, Jack, to turn right back

To dear old Liverpool town

We built the Mersey tunnel, boys

Way back in 'thirty-three

Dug an 'ole in the ground until we found

An 'ole called Wallasey

And the foreman cried, Come on outside

The roof is fallin' down

And I'm tellin' you, Jack, we all swam back

To dear old Liverpool town

There's every race and colour of face

And every kind of name

But the pigeons on the pierhead

They'll treat us all the same

If you walk up Upper Parliament Street

You'll see faces black and brown

And I've also seen the Orange and Green

In dear old Liverpool town
