Frank E Gibbard Posted July 3, 2011 Share Posted July 3, 2011 (edited) Intro: In suburban Liverpool L18 is this thoroughfare Made famous by the Beatles' eponymous song; Replete with allusion to people and places there, And McCartney's music, just made to sing along. Middle fourteen: A wry melange was co-created A Beatle's hang-out recreated Returning to their earlier fields To iterate what memory yields. Salted with local Scouser slang Few may ken, a code they sang: "Four of fish" recalls a fishy meal, "Finger pies" being about a feel. It tells a sort of Mersey fairy tale Upon a wacky Macca wacker trail. Characters named by occupation, In yer actual Liverpudlian location; Banker, barber, fireman, and nurse, Doing odd deeds in dead gear verse. Coda: Paul immortalised the whole area of Penny Lane; A barber's shop, a shelter, a fire station all still remain. Tourists visit like Abbey Road, Beatles nostalgia reigns, Meanwhile wack, in our ears and our eyes it's ... Still bloody pouring rain .... in Penny Lane.
