Album: Paul McCartney's Liverpool oratorio
Autor: McCartney-Davis

1953
The war baby, Shanty, now 11 years old and at school, celebrates his Liverpool upbringing. With classmates, he skips lessons to sag off and sunbathe in the graveyard of Liverpool cathedral. Sleeping on a Gravestone, he dreams of ghosts of the past and the future. One of the ghosts, Mary Dee, is his bride-to-be. Waking and back in school, Shanty and his classmates are taught Spanish in the form of a folk song by their new mistress, miss Inkley.

Boys:
We're here in school today
to get a perfect education
yes, we're going up
we're keen to learn the rules and laws that civilisation taught us
yes, we're growing up
not for ourselves
but for the whole world were we born
and we were born in Liverpool
our teachers say that ignorance will always drag us down
it's like a nagging cough.

Shanty:
But I can say that looking back
the most important thing I found was sagging off
not for the whole world
but for yourself were you born
and you were...

Shanty and boys:
Born in Liverpool.

Boys:
Not Birmingham, not Edinburgh
not Manchester or Sunderland.

Shanty:
Being born where you were born
Carries with it certain responsibilities.

Boys:
This school is good for us.

Shanty:
This school is only good for those
who want to learn from books
you'll lose your sense of purpose.

Boys:
But we dare not answer back
we're scared of teacher's looks
not for ourselves
but for the whole world were we born
and we were born in Liverpool.

Shanty:
Not Coventry.

Headmaster:
Or Solihull.

Boys:
Not Scarborough.

Shanty:
Not Inverness
being born where you were born
carries with it certain responsibilities.

Headmaster:
Walk in single file out of the classroom
down the stairs and into the playground.

Boys:
Through the school gates
cross the road, and over the cemetery fence
down the hill to where the grave-stones
lie inviting in the sun
settle down, settle down
let the afternoon slip by
settle down, settle down
it's the perfect place for a kip.

Shanty falls asleep on a grave-stone and dreams

Shanty:
Kept in confusion, trapped by illusion
thinking of speaking my mind
dreams of the future, ghosts of the past left behind
constantly drifting, endlessly lifting
more weight than one man can bear
into the future, ghosts of the past ev'rywhere.

Men's chorus (ghosts):
You're sleeping amongst us
we're in your dream
who are you, why call us
what does this mean
disturbing our slumber
you move so fast.

Shanty:
Ghosts of the past
tossing and turning, somehow I'm learning
secrets I'd rather not know
can't it be simple, why does it have to be so?

Mary Dee (as ghost):
I'll always be here, I'll never leave you
I'll always be in your mind
dreams of the future, ghosts that the past left behind.

Women s chorus (ghosts):
You re sleeping amongst us
we're in your dream
who are you, why call us
what does this mean?

Full chorus (ghosts):
Disturbing our slumber
you move so fast.

Shanty and Mary Dee (as ghost):
Ghosts of the past.

Later, back in school

Headmaster:
Boys, this is your teacher
her name is miss inkley
she will teach you Spanish
she was in the war fighting with the troops
you may call her sir!

Boys:
Sir?

Miss Inkley:
First of all today you will learn a song
in a foreign tongue
you will follow me as I say the words
we will now begin
