Hull

Sue and Annie wrote me, they're coming down to quote me
Know every word to every song.
Rod N' Ray are talking, the radio is squawking
Me I'm wondering what the hell went wrong.

100 miles more to Liverpool, 100 more miles to go
Been down this road in sunshine and in snow
And it don't get any shorter
And the water under the bridge has got to flow, oh no.

Funny how a mile can go on forever
Funny how a day can be an age
Funny how a smile can face the stormy weather
Funny how a house can be a cage.

100 miles more to Liverpool, 100 more miles to go
Been down this road in sunshine and in snow
And it don't get any shorter
And the water under the bridge has got to flow.

John and Paul are sleeping, a streetcleaner is sweeping
The moon is on his own no place to go.
Me, I'm cracking jokes in the bar with all the blokes
Toasting the end of another show.

Dancing in the streets till the early morning light.
The tug boat on the Mersey joining in the Jamboree
Well a man must have his dreams
Even though his dreams might never come to be.

100 miles more to Liverpool, 100 more miles to go
Been down this road in sunshine and in snow
And it don't get any shorter
And the water under the bridge has got to

100 miles more to Liverpool, 100 more miles to go
Been down this road in sunshine and in snow
And it don't get any shorter
And the water under the bridge has got to flow.
