Bradford born Bradford bred
On looking back enough's been said
Lovely old buildings now pulled down
Many new buildings all around town
Architects have lost their way
But unfortunate for us they're here to stay.
Now it's water they are trying to put through
What will end up in this water
I can't think what! Can you?
Town hall building still looks good
It's built down in the centre
Where there used to be a wood
Bradford Cathedral standing there
So impressive, it includes the wool sack beneath the chair
We've lost Leeds Road, Manchester Road too
What more is left to undo.
Bradford University is doing so well
But parking a car is still "sheer hell"
Odsal police station now empty
It should be full, police about to keep the peace
And much more road sweeping to keep Bradford neat
If they gave me a brush I'd help to sweep.
