GUEST,harvey andrews BS: Is bring a Brummie a state of mind? (97* d) RE: BS: Is bring a Brummie a state of mind? 19 Oct 06


To answer the questions. If Bromsgrove folk club will get in touch via my website www.harveyandrews.com we'll see what can be sorted, and malcolm has had a serious operation from which he has now fully recovered and is back to his usual top form.
Thanks for the "nice bloke" Villan, but I never get involved in slagging off a City club. I honestly say if the Blues can't win it I hope the Villa do. That's how it was when I was a kid. I remember derby ganes with an integrtaed crowd and lots of good crack. It doesn't happen today because it's a different world and i think that's sad.
as the play says;
"We're all Brummies ain't we?"
Anyway, here's the anthem I wrote for the show.

                            MY FINE OLD CITY
I WAS BORN AND RAISED TO LOVE MY FINE OLD CITY
IT'S ALWAYS BEEN A JEWEL IN ENGLAND'S CROWN
OUR TERRACED HOUSE CALLED HOME WAS LIKE A PALACE
ONLY MINUTES FROM THE CENTRE OF THE TOWN


NEIGHBOURS WERE ALL FRIENDS AND LIFE WAS EASY
WITH BOYS OUT PLAYING FOOTBALL IN THE STREET
GIRLS HAD HOPSCOTCH SQUARES DRAWN ON THE PAVEMENT
AND THEIR MOTHERS KEPT THEIR DOORSTEPS NICE AND NEAT

CHORUS
AND IT'S MY PLACE, MY FOLKS, MY LIFE LONG
MY JOY, MY LOVE, MY LIFE'S SONG

THE SOUND OF BELLS ON SUNDAY FROM ST MARTIN'S
THE BULLRING ALWAYS BUSTLING WITH ITS NOISE
PROUD NELSON STEERING US THROUGH STORMY WEATHER
AS WE LAUGHED WITH ALL THE CHEEKY BARROW BOYS

AND IT'S MY PLACE, MY FOLKS, MY LIFE LONG
MY JOY, MY LOVE, MY LIFE'S SONG

I WAS BORN AND RAISED TO LOVE MY FINE OLD CITY
IT'S ALWAYS BEEN A JEWEL IN ENGLAND'S CROWN
SO IF YOU CALL THERE'LL ALWAYS BE A WELCOME
FROM US BRUMMIES WHO WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN

AND IT'S OUR PLACE OUR FOLKS, OUR LIVES LONG
OUR JOY, OUR LOVE, OUR LIFE, ..
OUR LIFE'S...
SONG
