BIRMINGHAM


B irmingham was my first city
I n it I was raised, it was home
R ight from when I was a baby
M y heart was enamoured with Brum
I cannot love other cities
N ow Birmingham! Makes my heart hum
G ladly do I sing its praises
H ow I thank the heavens above
A nd Birmingham best of places
M y first metropolitan love

I love visiting its centre
S uch buildings of civic grandeur

T he town hall like those Greek temples
H ow about the art gallery
E xalting famous examples?

B irmingham is the best city
E ven Manchester can't compete
S o if you're not from Brum, pity!
T hese my praises are now complete
