Gary Neville's Tower

Gary Neville wants to build a tower
For hotels and offices and shops and that
Just up Deansgate from the Beetham Tower
Where his brother Phil used to have a flat.

Manchester's big, it's bold, it's brash
It's always had a bit of swagger
But people say this tower's too flash
Like Tony Wilson and Liam Gallagher.

They say this tower's too in yer face
Like Mark E. Smith and John Cooper Clarke
They say it doesn't know its place
Like Frederic Engels and Karl Marx.

But I say Gary shouldn't take no shit and
Build it into the Manchester sky
Because if there's one thing I know about this city
None of us say no to getting high.
