"Going Down To Liverpool" as written by and Kimberley Rew....
Hey now
Where you going with that load of nothing in your hand
I said: Hey now
All through this green and pleasant land.

I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
All the days of my life
All the days of my life.

Hey there
Where you going with that UB40 in your hand
I said: Hey there
All through this green and pleasant land.

I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
All the days of my life
All the days of my life.

Hey now
Where you going with that UB40 in your hand
I said: Hey now
All through this green and pleasant land.

I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
All the days of my life
All the days of my life.

    General Comment"Green and Pleasant Land" is a description of England from Blake's hymn "Jerusalem". Here I think it is being used ironically to describe the industrial wasteland created by the Thatcher government.

    General CommentA UB40 is an Unemployment Benefit (UB) form. It seems to speak of the attitude of young people from the country (green and pleasant land) going to the city and living off welfare, wasting their lives.
