lyrics

Streets, towns and cities near and far
These places make us who we are
Of all the places in this land
I was made in Birmingham
Not everything quite goes to plan
But I know I’m a lucky man
I caught her smile, I asked her hand
I met my love in Birmingham

Oh, what are you waiting for my son?
Tell, tell me ‘bout the things you love
Oh sing, sing out of your heart and soul
Perhaps a song from each of us is what we need.

I took my love to Coventry
So we could see what we could be
Of all the places in this land
I was made in Birmingham
To pay the bills that came to me
I joined an insurance company
Four years of study, 1, 2, 3 (4!)
I became an actuary

Oh, what are you waiting for my son?
Tell, tell me ‘bout the things you love
Oh sing, sing out of your heart and soul
Perhaps a song from each of us is what we need.

My pride and joy, my little man
My son was born in Birmingham
Of all the places in this land
I was made in Birmingham
Time will pass, I’ll watch him grow
I’ll try to teach him all I know
I’ve settled here, I’ve laid my plans
I’ve made my home in Birmingham

Oh, what are you waiting for my son?
Tell, tell me ‘bout the things you love
Oh sing, sing out of your heart and soul
Perhaps a song from each of us is what we need.
