  • Hey now
    Where you going with that load of nothing in your hand
    I said: Hey now
    All through this green and pleasant land.

    I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
    I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
    I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
    All the days of my life
    All the days of my life.

    Hey there
    Where you going with that UB40 in your hand
    I said: Hey there
    All through this green and pleasant land.

    I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
    I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
    I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
    All the days of my life
    All the days of my life.

    Hey now
    Where you going with that UB40 in your hand
    I said: Hey now
    All through this green and pleasant land.

    I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
    I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
    All the days of my life
    All the days of my life. Writer/s: Kimberley Rew
