Born and bred in the Capital of the North,
Let this review guide you round; let’s set forth,
On a fantastic journey of friendly dialects,
Pies, chips ‘n’ gravy ‘n’ mutual respects.
But let’s break our fast first, it’ll be a long day,
A Jewish bakery with café au lait…
We’ll jump on a tram, a diversity of tongues.
Share myriad stories of rights and of wrongs…
Some love Utd, some love the City,
I’m Red ‘til I’m dead, the latter I pity!
I’ll take you ‘round Trafford, of the Old variety,
Matt Busby Way with a lack of sobriety…
The Arndale Centre & Piccadilly Gardens,
An IRA battering – God gave us our pardons.
Chinatown beckons or Curry Mile,
Culinary delights whichever Asian style,
Now let’s get our groove on like the Madchester days,
Colourful Canal Street or the Happy Mondays…
Oasis or ‘Stones or cool cabaret,
Deansgate’s alive as our eye’s start to glaze 😉
’24 Hour Party People’ we’ve been for a while,
So I hope when you leave here you do with a smile.
After sampling the culture and Mancunian love,
I’m sure you’ll agree it fits like a glove…
