Everyone delights to spend their summer's holiday Down beside the side of the silvery sea I'm no exception to the rule, in fact, if I'd my way I'd reside by the side of the silvery sea But when you're just the common Smith or Jones or Brown At business up in town you've got to settle down You save up all the money you can till summer comes around Then away you go to a spot you know where the cockleshells are found Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside I do like to be beside the sea I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom Where the brass bands play tiddely-om-pom-pom So just let me be beside the seaside I'll be beside myself with glee And there's lots of girls besides I should like to be beside Beside the seaside, beside the sea Timothy went to Blackpool for the day last Eastertide To see what he could see by the side of the sea Soon he reached the station there, the first thing he espied Was the Wine Lodge door stood open invitingly To quench his thirst, he toddled inside, and called out for a ‘wine' Which grew to eight or nine, till his nose began to shine Said he “What people see in the sea, I'm sure I fail to see” So he caught the train back home again, then to his wife said he Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside I do like to be beside the sea I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom Where the brass bands play tiddely-om-pom-pom So just let me be beside the seaside I'll be beside myself with glee And there's lots of girls besides I should like to be beside Beside the seaside, beside the sea William Sykes, the burglar, he'd been out to work one night Filled his bag with jewels, cash and plate Constable Brown felt quite surprised when William hove in sight Said he “The hours you're keeping are far too late” So he grabbed him by the collar and lodged him safe and sound in jail Next morning looking pale, Bill told a tearful tale The judge said, “For a couple of months I'm sending you away” Said Bill “How kind, well if you don't mind where I spend my holiday” Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside I do like to be beside the sea I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom Where the brass bands play tiddely-om-pom-pom So just let me be beside the seaside I'll be beside myself with glee And there's lots of girls besides I should like to be beside Beside the seaside, beside the sea (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2016)
