Pompey, Pompey where chimes ring out to

a town full of history

where I was born to

where the famous have walked

and history was made too

from southsea castle you look out to sea

from the Palmerston follies guard over thee

the cockleshell heroes left from here too

to launch the daring raid against germans in France too

Nelson sailed from here and battled at Trafalgar too

where victorys guns  were ablaze and defeated the french

duke of Wellington was  assassinated in old Portsmouth

not far  from the cathedral a plaque stands in memory

peter sellers was born here and became famous too

in the films of the pink panther we remember you

all members of the royal family have been here too see

the views across the Solent and breath-taking scenery

the isle of wight bobs up and down out in the sea

where queen victoria once lived at Osborn house

Montgomery watched football at fratton park too

home of Pompey football club which is so famous too

when chimes ring out fratton football fans shout

Pompey Pompey play up Pompey.

the people are friendly and go about there lives each day

we have lots of museums marines  and D DAY

and   Whylie the famous maritime artist live here to

well this is city where I live

after many years of living away

this Portsmouth my home where I stay
