Manchester Boy


Sung by David Jones



I'm a Manchester boy,
Me Mum's pride and joy
A chip off the old block, me Dad.
I can dance, I can sing,
I can do anything
There's nothing too hard if I try
And if the going gets rough I can brave it
If I set myself straight from the start.
I'm a Manchester boy,
Me Mum's pride and joy
A chip off the old block, me Dad.

Now when I was fourteen, I decided to leave
Me Dad came to wave me goodbye
As I got on the train, it started to rain
And me Dad, well, he started to cry
As the train pulled away from the station
I shouted that, "Id be home soon!"
Y'see, I'm a Manchester boy,
Me Mum's pride and joy
A chip off the old block, me Dad.

Well, I've traveled the world,
And found me a girl
I come home just once in awhile
Relations to meet me
My friends they all greet me
We laugh, and we talk of old times
Nothing has changed much around here
'Cept me Mum and me Dad's passed away
But I'm still that Manchester boy
Me Mum's pride and joy
A chip off the old block, me Dad.
I'm a chip off the old block
A chip off the old block
A chip off the old block, me Dad.
