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

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
