    It aint rocket science but we think it’s essential
    That the kids in this city reach their full potential

    So here at the Warren we all try our best
    To ensure that young people are facing less stress

    And we want to empower the ones with no voice
    To take charge of their lives so they all have a choice

    So you might be sat thinking
    Well what is the link
    Between pianos and hull and young kids on the brink

    Of despair with no hope
    When they’re just trying to cope
    With the scale of the problems they face as they grope

    For a break in the tension
    A moment of bliss
    When they can lift up their eyes and shout yeah this is it

    And you might think it’s clichéd
    Or weird or a joke
    That we want a piano when we’re all pretty broke

    And we’ve got bigger things
    Going on in our lives
    Than tinkling the ivories and giving high fives

    But like Shawhank Redemption when he puts on that tune
    And the whole of that place flies as high as the moon

    And in a moment of beauty
    When you let a note soar
    And yer heart is uplifted like never before

    And that perfect chord
    Gets under your skin
    and you can’t help but hear cos it goes right on in

    Like the note at the end
    of a beautiful song
    and you want to believe and you want to belong

    And you might think we don’t know chaconne from etude
    Cos we’re too busy rapping to hear a prelude

    But listen to us when we tell you for real
    That music affects how we look, think and feel

    And those 88 keys might not change our wealth
    But it might make a difference to our mental health

    You still don’t believe us then do us a favour
    Get yourself to a keyboard and bang out C Major Show less
