Down the seafront tonight - Pinewood Royal


Tall ships in the harbour
Waiting for a sailing far away
Stones across the water
Herring gulls drifting across the bay
Painted lady in the garden
The Blackcap sings from early dawn
The warm air slumbers
Soothing the Trevello Lawn
On the red cliffs of The Berry
The lighthouse shines till early dawn

We're going down to the sea front tonight
We're going down to where you can see ships passing in the night
We're going down to where you can see rows of coloured lights
We're going down down to the sea front tonight
Just you and I

The bright lights sparkle
On the sea front walking by
The ice cream parlour
Fairground rides and coconut shy
Ocean going liners
Cabin lights blazing wave goodbye
White horses in the moonlight
Constellations across the sky
Red glow from leaded windows
A summer's evening in July

We're going down to the sea front tonight
We're going down to where you can see ships passing in the night
We're going down to where you can see rows of coloured lights
We're going down down to the sea front tonight
Just you and I
