Lyrics
Oh, can’t you see the old farm fields
And the cows going down to market
On Constellation Street
Ah, can’t you hear the workers’ boots
On the black bridge to the steelworks
All the places that we meet

Oh we’ve got Diamonds, we’ve got Pearls
In our inner city world
We’ve got life from Broadway down to Tin Street
We’ve got Comets, we’ve got Stars
In this universe of ours
We stand on a hundred years of history

Oh, can’t you see down Stacey Road
Fred Keenor’s in the schoolyard
With a long long way to go
Borne from the trenches of the Somme
To the victory steps of Wembley
He just kept on keeping on

(Chorus)

Doo, do do do do do. . .
We’ve got diamonds we’ve got pearls
Doo, do do do do do. . .
This is our inner city world

Oh, can’t you hear the newborn cry
In the wards of the Infirmary
As the old trams rattle by
Ah, take a walk down Mucky Park
Past the loan sharks and the broken glass
Not always easy to survive

But we’ve got Diamonds, we’ve got Pearls
In our inner city world
We’ve got life from Broadway down to Tin Street
We’ve got Comets, we’ve got Stars
We’re the city’s beating heart
We stand on a hundred years of history
(repeat chorus)
