From Northenden to Partington, it’s rain
From Moss Side to Swinton, hardly Spain

It doesn’t spoil the view or cause offense
Make gentlemen wear shorts but don’t make gents
So convertible stay garage bound
If rain makes Britain great

Upon the radiator
Makes Manchester yet greater
From Cheetham Hill to Wythenshawe, it’s rain
As I’m caught up without my jacket once again

For the clouds above the city there’s one last fling
And the sun strolls into town like long lost king
So convertible stay garage bound
If rain makes Britain great

Upon the radiator
Makes Manchester yet greater
And the mood of this whole sodden place is melancholy
But dropped its lolly
Like the rain blew into town, kidnapped the sun

Save after sun for later
Then Manchester is greater
As you dry your clothes once again
What makes Britain great
