  • I was a sailor first, I sailed the sea
    Then I got a job, in a factory
    Played Butlin's Camp with my friend Rory
    It was good for him, it was great for me

    Liverpool I left you, said 'goodbye' to Madryn Street
    I always followed my heart, and I never missed a beat
    Destiny was calling, I just couldn't stick around
    Liverpool I left you, but I never let you down

    Went to Hamburg, the red lights were on
    With George & Paul, and my friend John
    We rocked all night, we all looked tough
    We didn't have much, but we had enough

    Liverpool I left you, said 'goodbye' to Madryn Street
    I always followed my heart, and I never missed a beat
    Destiny was calling, I just couldn't stick around
    Liverpool I left you, but I never let you down

    In the U.S.A. when we played Shea
    We were Number One, and it was fun
    When I look back, it sure was cool
    For those Four Boys from Liverpool

    Liverpool I left you, said 'goodbye' to Admiral Grove
    I always followed my heart, so I took it on the road
    Destiny was calling, I just couldn't stick around
    Liverpool I left you, but I never let you down
