(:redirect quiet=1:) %abc-2.1 X:1 T:I Wish I Was Back In Liverpool Z:Webmaster C:Stan Kelly C:Leon Rosselson K: W:1 W:I wish I was in Liverpool, Liverpool Town where I was born. W:There aint to trees, no scented breeze no fields of waving corn. W:But there's lots of girls with peroxide curls and the black and tan flows free, W:It's six in the bed by the old pier head and Liverpool Town for me. W: W:2 W:It's ten long years since I wandered away to sail the wide world o'er. W:Me very first trip in an old steam ship that was bound for Baltimore. W:I was seven days sick and I couldn't stick the bobbing up and down. W:So I told 'em Jack, to turn right back to dear old Liverpool Town. W: W:3 W:We build the Mersey Tunnel lads, way back in thirty-three. W:Dug a hole in the ground and found a hole called Wallesey. W:The foreman cried come on outside, the roof is falling down. W:And I'm telling you Jack, we all swam back to dear old Liverpool Town. % % % % % % % % % %]
