The Lyrics

People who've never been to Rotherham will probably not appreciate this.
And the towers belch the smoke
Like they're trying to pollute the earth
And all the men are lazy
And most are generally berks
The whole place is smelly
The people are so stinky they hid
And no-one knows why they came to live here
When they could have lived in sunny Brid'

This could be Rotheram or anywhere
Manchester or Hull
'Cause Rotherham is anywhere
Anywhere that's dull
Anywhere that's dull

And everyone is thick
And everyone has stinky pants
and when the town planning gets a grant
they spend it on destroying ants

And when faced with thick and stinky
They fire red paintball blasts
That'll blast those smelly tramps
With too many ants in their pants...

This could be Rotheram or anywhere
Manchester or Hull
'Cause Rotherham is anywhere
Anywhere that's dull
Anywhere that's dull

The whole place is smelly
The people are so stinky they hid
And no-one knows why they came to live here
When they could have lived in sunny Brid'

This could be Rotheram or anywhere
Manchester or Hull
'Cause Rotherham is anywhere
Anywhere that's dull
Anywhere that's dull

This could be Rotheram or anywhere
Manchester or Hull
'Cause Rotherham is anywhere
Anywhere that's dull
Anywhere that's dull

Hurrah for Bridlington! A great parody! Made me laugh a lot. And to think the best they can offer us is The Chuckle Brothers. Explains it all, really. Matt
