Brand new from my band Only Child. As Bruce would say: "This is an immigrant song... "

The unashamed sentimentality made me wince at first but after three listens I liked it. 

Do you get annoyed with plonkers like that Anthony guy on X Factor who deliberately exaggerate their Liverpool accent? I spent the first 28 years of my life in Liverpool (Huyton) and I didn't know anyone who talked like that muppet unless they were taking the piss.

Thanks, Demos. The song isn't sentimental about Liverpool - the songs is about the fact that the 'Scouse' dialect came about as a direct result of immigration (particularly Irish) into Liverpool in the 1800s. It's a paen to the possibilities of immigration.

Professional Scousers such as you describe let us all down. La. :)
