Yorkshire (I've Seen It All)
I grew up on the mean streets of Menston and Ilkley But those aren't the only places I've been I've been around, I've seen it all I've been to Bradford and Leeds Now I'm living in Bingley Been to Swillington Drighlington been to Baildon and Tingley Been to Sheffield Slowett Stanley Selby and Skipton Giggleswick Grassington Garforth Guiseley and Gipton I've had bevvies in Beverley, got on it in Ossett Sang a song in Tong with a fella from Hong Kong Bramley Chapel Allerton and Wath on Dearne Sowerby Bridge Seacroft Settle and Saltburn Been to Woodlesford, Wakey, been to Kippax and Cas Went to Eureka as a kid and honestly thought it was class If I need to go to Ikea, I hop it over to Birstall For the cinema and the bowling though it's usually Kirkstall Seen sheep, cows, pigs and chickens running through farms Dodged pheasants and deer on the road up by the Rythre Arms Hornsea and Hull, Sherburn in Elmet and Pudsey Been disgusted by the prices of the houses in Alwoodley Jumped the bracken in Addingham rented a room in Broom Whatever you did in Winstons it's not for me to presume I saw a hare in Harewood a hippy in Hipperholme A horse in Horsforth Robin Koch at Elland Road I saw Zak Dingle near the cricket club in Thackley Chris Wilder in Otley, Deontay in Batley Shipley and Saltaire, Haworth it's all home In school we once went swimming at the Doncaster Dome My brother just started renting in the centre of York Lishmans and Wilson's always sorted me out with pork I've been to Chapeltown Rothwell out to Whitby and Flamborough Sung along with Billy Pearce at the Bradford Alhambra Been to Micklethwaite Manningham Meanwood Morley East Morton Huddersfield, Harden Rotherham Roundhay and Rawdon Hebden Bridge Hunslet Harehills Harrogate and Heckmondwyke I lost my lucky lighter at the laundrette in Laisterdyke Lofthouse, Frizinghall, Huby and Weeton Out to Robin Hood's Bay back to Queensbury and Steeton Been to Buckton and Leathley, Armley and Beeston Knaresborough and Keighley, Scarborough and Yeadon Belle Isle sounds like paradise to those who've never bin The rain in Wetwang does what it says on the tin I've been to Gildersome Whinmoor Shadwell Thornton and Farsley Blubberhouses Bramham Brimham Rocks and Barnsley As a kid we took the bucket and the spade to Filey Back when Esholt had Shadrach and Lisa Riley That's right I've been there and I've seen a lot I admit there's probably even some I might've forgot Like when I ate an Apple, in Apperly Bridge When I burned in Burnsall cooked in Cookridge I've been to Malham, Masham, Moortown, and Middleton Calverley, Dewsbury, Wortley and Riddlesden Someone followed me in Cleckheaton and I had to skedaddle I met my idol in Idle and had a paddle in Adel I've been to Aysgarth Falls I tell you I seen it all Every week I went to BNI at Weetwood Hall Holbeck, Malton, Arthington and Wilsden Gargrave, Farnley, Ingleton and Silsden Halifax, Ponte, Ripon and Low Moor There can't be many more places that I haven't explored Burley in Wharfedale conjures a lot of memories I'll be here when I'm gone, but I don't know that I'll ever be Like a student in Headingley or Bielsa in Wetherby I want to leave a mark on the streets that I roam A legacy for better in this county we call home The most passionate compassionate people I've ever known You've got a friend in me, and so you're never alone When I'm around in town take a minute to say hello Cos I'll be gone in a flash there's still some places I've got to go I haven't been to Penistone or Featherstone or Goole And all the rest I didn't get in but I'll seeing them soon Hahahahahahahaaaa Oh no you've gotta be kidding, I missed out Ben Rhydding
