From Northenden to Partington, it’s rain
From Altrincham to Chadderton, it’s rain
From Moss Side to Swinton, hardly Spain
It’s a picture postcard of 'Wish they never came'

And whilst that deckchair in the garden it makes no sense
It doesn’t spoil the view or cause offense
Those Floridas, Bavarias and Kents
Make gentlemen wear shorts but don’t make gents

So convertible stay garage bound
Save after sun for later
If rain makes Britain great
Then Manchester is greater
