Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I bloomin' love Lancashire me
    I were born here, I were raised here
    And I thought I were gonna die here

    That's until work come to me and said
    We got a new plant down south
    your gonna have to move down there for work
    To Coventry! BOOOOOOOOOO!

    Well I didn't know what to do for best
    So I thought I'd have a bit of a stroll around
    Get some memories
    See if I can figure out what I'm going for dee.

    I kissed my girl
    By PC World
    I dropped me crisps
    Outside WH Smiths
    They chopped down that tree
    To build a KFC

    In this Lancashire Town
    This Lancashire Town
    We both held hands
    Outside Matalan's
    I tucked in me vest
    Outside the old Nat West

    I dreamt of Gherkins
    Outside Dorothy Perkins
    In this Lancashire Town
    My Lancashire Town

    Oh it's all changed since my day
    I'll tell you that for nowt
    Used to be Dixons down the road
    It's now Curry Digi Kill

    Theres a one way system down by leslies pie shop
    It's chaos there at three o'clock
    Can't get through, not for love nor money

    Used to be all fields at the bottom of my road
    Well that's still there National Trust has seen to that

    All the pubs have funny names
    Like Fashion and Which
    Not seen a Pig & Albert for years

    I sighed a sigh
    Passing MFI
    I received a text
    Getting socks from Next
    I bought Die Hard 3
    In the sale at HMV
    Oh yes
    In this Lancashire Town
    A lovely Lancashire town

    When they knocked down th'Argos
    I stood and cried
    But then they built a TK Maxx
    So that's alreet
    I ate my onion rings
    Outside a Burger King
    In this Lancashire Town
    What a Lancashire town

    Well with so many eye-watering beautiful memories
    How could I move?
    I were born here
    I were raised here
    And I'll be buried here
    Next to me greyhounds and me whippets at the bottom of the garden
    I can't do this
    I wont do it

    Then I thought about that text that I got off Brian in Next
    It says it's double money down in Coventry
    So I had another look round
    And thought sod the lot of you's
    Double money
    I'm off next week
