Manchester - Beautiful South

 

From Northenden to Partington it's rain

 

From Altrincham to Chadderton it's rain

 

From Moss Side to Swinton hardly Spain

 

It's a picture postcard of wish they never came

 

And whilst that deckchair

In the garden it makes no sense

 

It doesn't spoil the view or cause offence

 

Those Floridas Bavarias and Kents

 

Make gentlemen wear shorts

But don't make gents

 

So convertible stay garage-bound

Save after-sun for later

 

If rain makes Britain great

 

Then Manchester is greater

As you dry your clothes once again

 

Upon the radiator

 

What makes Britain great

 

Makes Manchester yet greater

 

From Cheetham Hill to

Wythenshawe it's rain

 

Gorton Salford Sale pretty much the same

 

As I'm caught up without my jacket once again

 

The raindrops on my face

Play a sweet refrain

 

And as winter turns reluctantly to spring

 

For the clouds above the

City there's one last fling

 

Swallows build their nests

Chaffinch sing

 

And the sun strolls into

Town like long lost king

 

So convertible stay garage bound

Save after sun for later

If rain makes Britain great

 

Then Manchester is greater

As you dry your clothes once again

Upon the radiator

 

What makes Britain great

 

Makes Manchester yet greater

 

And the mood of this whole

Sodden place is melancholy

 

Like the sun came out to play

Shone through the clouds

But dropped its lolly

 

And everyone looks so disappointed

So so sorry

 

Like the rain blew into town

Kidnapped the sun

And stole its brolly

 

So convertible stay garage bound

Save after sun for later

 

If rain makes Britain great

Then Manchester is greater

As you dry your clothes once again

 

Upon the radiator

 

What makes Britain great

Makes Manchester yet greater
