“Manchester Boy” (ukelele version) 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 myself 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
And me dad, well, he started to cry

As the train pulled away from the station
I shouted that I’d 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
And found me a girl
And I come home just once in a while
Relations to meet me
My friends, they all greet me
We laugh, and we talk of old times

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

Hee hee
