I was a sailor first, I sailed the sea
Then I got a job, in a factory

  • Wow, this is a great song. The lyrics are delightfully cheesy.
  • Ringo is OK with me!
  • Its so amaziing but sad. I almost cry whenever I watch the music video. I'd recommend watching it.
  • Lyrics are weak but the rest of the song besides that is just superb.
  • Liverpool i left you, said goodbye to downey street, I always followed my heart and my drum chops were incomplete, a fill in gig was calling, I just had to eat some streak, liverpool I left you, because you smelt and were pale and drear.... dooo doo do do do do dada da dada da

  • Why oh why isn't this man taken seriously?This song is a lovely nod to his home-town,but it could just as easily be about your or mine.God bless Ringo.
