"Bojangles" as written by and Liam James Fray....
the shambles are a shambles
crooks and crafters hanging from the rafters
with the beat and the bangles
oh bojangles shirks and shouts from all of the angles

masses on mass go past
head down walk fast
this is where we live too
let the ladies and children through

I'm struggling help me along
hold my hand while I sing you my song
I'm struggling help me along
hold my hand while I sing my song for you

tearing through St. Anne's square
policeman down no one cares
tearing through St. Anne's square
policeman down no one cares
tearing through St. Anne's square
policeman down no one cares
tearing through St. Anne's square
policeman down no one cares

the shambles were a shambles
crooks and crafters hanging from the rafters
with the beat and the bangles
oh bojangles shirks and shouts from all of the angles

I'm struggling help me along
hold my hand while I sing you my song
I'm struggling help me along
hold my hand while I sing my song for you

    General CommentThe more I hear the song the more I'm convinced it was written about what happened when trouble broke out in Manchester when Rangers were there in the UEFA cup final in 2008....the courteeners being proud Mancunians
