Must it always rain in Liverpool

I wrote these lyrics for Dutchbeat so that he could add music for The Beatles competition. Sadly, it was not to be for Dutch but that's ok. :-) Anyway,  having completed the lyrics along with the melody and harmony.  I'm thrilled to have this song in my collection of originals.   It's not going into the Beatles competition but I will produce this when I find the time.  It's about my experiences in Liverpool where my fiancée was born and now lives a short train journey away from.  I decided to write around a Beatles theme but also give the song an undisclosed personal meaning to myself.  I'd be happy to further explain the ideas behind the lyrics if anyone would like to know. 

My apologies  if there's a recommended time between presenting lyrics that I  have not observed.  Please feel free to remove the lyrics if that is the case.

Must It alway rain in Liverpool

In Mathew Street, it's almost 9.
The girls appear, singin' 'I feel fine.'
It was long ago.

To Albert dock by city light
I hear the words of 'Mr Kite;'
'On trampoline'.

I hear the screams, they're now an echo from the past.
The tourists storm The Cavern and they dance.
'Here comes the sun' to light the contours of her face.
I see her beautiful green eyes and then the pain.
Must it always rain in Liverpool?

In Mathew Street, a ghost appears.
Let rock 'n' roll caress your ears.
It was long ago.

The stage is set, guitars and suits
with pencil ties and Chelsea boots,
the band performs.

'Here comes the sun' to light the contours of her face.
I see her beautiful green eyes and then the pain.
Must it always rain in Liverpool?
Upon the hill, the lonely fool.
Must it always rain in a Liverpool L1?

I usually need music to appreciate lyrics...but these work pretty well already for me.

"The main thing is to have a gutsy approach....but use your head." Julia Child

 "In a world of robotic conformity, the only originality left in music is the imperfections" Eric Craptone

"Special thanks to Steve Gleason for making me who I am today." Leonard Scaper

@Cool Hands, i would like to hear this with the music, the lyrics look and read very well, nice  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

and never mind me, i am a bit stuck in one end (a dead end?) in my songwriting 'career'  ;D ;D ;D ;D i am totally into synthesizer instrumental bits at the moment, so i don't really have a clue how i will end up with something for the Beatles comp

cool lyrics @Cool Hand  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

@Dutchbeat, it is playing at full volume  'caressing my ears'   ;D ;D ;D  I was going to enter my song 'When The Beatles Ruled The World' for The Beatles competition but this one, I think has captured my heart!   ;D ;D ;D ;D

Now where did I leave the Wurlitzer ?  ;D ;D ;D ;D

@Dutchbeat that is very tempting. I could only  provide a very rough sketch of acoustic guitars, bass, piano and drum loop with the main  vocal. I have not yet added the quirky bells and whistles, including the magic dust :-)
