“Manchester Boy” Lyrics

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 nothin’ too hard if I try

And if the goin’ gets rough, I can brave it
If I set meself straight from the start
You see, 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
Me dad, well, he started to cry

As the train pulled away from the station
I shouted, “I’ll be home soon”
You 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
Found me a girl
I come home just once in a while
Relations to meet me
My friends, they all greet me
We laugh, heh, we talk of old times

Doo-doo da, da-da da, da-da da, da-da da

Nothing has changed much around here
’Cept me mum and me dad’s passed away
Heh, but I’m still that Manchester boy
I’m me mum’s pride and joy
A chip off the old block me dad
I’m a chip off the old block
Chip off the old block
Chip off the old block, me dad

Da-da da, da-da da, da da, bum bum bum
