  15. In my Liverpool slum,
    In my Liverpool slum,
    The place is disgusting, there's filth everywhere,
    The folks are despondent, with a downtrodden Arie,
    You've got two cathedrals, we don't fuckin care ,
    In your Liverpool slum.

    In your Liverpool slum,
    In your Liverpool slum,
    The place is disgusting a right filthy hole,
    Where most of the locals are fiddling the dole,
    And those not in prison are out on parole,
    In my Liverpool slum.

    In my Liverpool slum,
    In my Liverpool slum,
    The men are all thickos, the women all tweet,
    There's all kind of flotsam about in the street,
    When they find a dead dog then they all enjoy meat,
    In that Liverpool slum.

    What a difference a road makes, paradise in an hour. 62, 62, 62, 62, :D

    Welcome aboard. :D :D :D :D

  19. From


    Scouse was brought to Liverpool by Northern European sailors, it was originally called Labskause. This was finally shortened to Skause and over time the spelling changed to the more Anglicised version we have today, Scouse.

    The people who ate Scouse were all generally sailors and their families and eventually all sailors within Liverpool were referred to as Scousers. Time has now taken its turn and everyone from the region of Liverpool is known as a Scouser. Or a Tosser if thats how you see us :lol:
     
  20. Not tossers at all. Originally from the Black Country (Coventry) known for its coal and industrial might - now known as the Black Country for its mosques and complete absence of white people.

    Also fond of other regional accents - Geordie, Brissul, Janner, - its what once put the Great in Britain.
