lyrics

It’s true that round here has seen better days.
Broken dreams run from the architecture,
peeling the paintwork and staining the pavements.
Not like the times when it glowed like the sun.
The November lights at Christmas time,
the Tivoli roar down at Millmoor.

So when I’m old or if I die, or got no money to get me by,
when the whiskey’s dripping from my tongue...
Do me a favour drop me off in Rotherham.
Cos even though it’s a shit-hole,
I love my Mum and Dad, and it’s my home,
and even though the two of them made me bald,
I’d never really known that their my heroes.
My younger brother, we used to fight,
I threw him down the stairs and he started to cry,
Nowadays I think what a bad move Lee,
Cos now he’s older he can kick the shit out of me.

So when I’m old or if I die, if I can’t get my washing dry,
if my bird runs off with another man...
Do me a favour drop me off in Rotherham.
Cos all my Nan’s friends are coming for tea,
just the usual cauliflower, carrots and peas,
they’ll sit chit-chatting of times now and then,
whilst Granddad sneaks away for a crafty cigarette.
I went away and I came back,
I thought I was something special but I’m not all that,
I only grew tits and I got a bit fat,
Thank God I realised I’m just a part of the pack my friends.

We’re all a part of the pack my friends.

So when I’m old or if I die, or got no money to get me by,
when the whiskey’s dripping from my tongue...
Do me a favour drop me off in Rotherham.
