These are the full Lyrics !

Full Title: Newport Ymerodraeth State of Mind

"Yeah I’m up at Ridgeway

Now I’m down the Moorings, right next to the Debenhams

And I’ll be Port forever

Yes it is my lifeblood

These streets they are a part of me

The yin to my yang

The Craig to my Bellamy

Catch me in the kitchen

I’ve got cheese I’m melting it

Caerphilly, bread and ham

Hey presto it’s a rarebit

Head out to Caerleon

Off-white transit

Febreeze on the dash for the strain where my nan sits

Out for the big one, sniffin’ on the miaow miaow

DJ on the ones and twos, spinnin’ Little Bow Wow

On the dancefloor raving, pack of 16 Benson

Someone fighting bouncers…turns out it’s Gavin Henson

Big up to Plaid Cymru, and the Welsh Assembly

Big up to Millennium: we don’t need no Wembley

Keep your Big Apple…

We’ll have a tangerine

Bugger of Alicia, Shirley Bassey is our queen

Round here we stick together

Like birds of a feather…

Except we’re not from Chigwell…

We’re from the small Welsh town of…


Concrete jumble, nothing in order

When you’re in Newport

Chips, cheese, curry makes you feel brand new

Washed down with a Special Brew

Repeat the word Newport, Newport, Newport

Catch me at Gwent Dragons in my fleece

Watching real sport

****, I make the Dragons’ fleece more famous

Than the Argonauts

And now that I’ve made it here I can make it anywhere

Signed a girl’s babbles when I headlined at the local fair

Yeah know the D to the V to the LA

Dad said “Get a job with them ,“ but Swansea’s too far away

So look me up on Google – I’m seven pages in

Was in the local paper, Mam threw it in the bin

She didn’t see the article calling me a rap star

Ripped it into pieces, and used it for the hamster

If you come and visit use the Designated Parking Zones

There’s a snooker hall, see

But I’m not a member…

And a lovely shopping centre opened in December

So head over the water

On the Transporter

Fifty for the toll booth

Male Voice Choir singing out…


Twinned with Guangxi, Province in China

There’s no province finer

Josie D’Arby’s from Newport

Yes, it’s strange, we didn’t know either…

Thank you Wikipedia

Let’s say some more Newports, Newports, Newports

One hand in the air for a taxi

Fifty quid if you’re sick on the back seat

But all those bendy roads make me queasy…

Can someone hold my hair?

Everybody say…


Access from the A4042

Traffic will enrage you

On your way to Newport

Our shopping centre is quite new

Big leeks will inspire you

Repeat to fade Newport, Newport, Newport"
