Sorry to interrupt your live discussion about difference between Manchester and Liverpool but this melody is fantastically popular in Russia. In Soviet times and later weather forecasts were made with this melody as a background.
I think she must have mixed up her cities:
Манчестер стал скучен.
И Ливерпуль скоро заплачет дождём..
I don't recall Manchester being boring, but I do recall lots of rain (and pea soup fogs).
