lyrics

Silver wings and speckled eggs
Silver birds pink reptilian legs
Gliding through the warm sea air
Free of burden free of care

Tumbledown seaside town
Never shed your shabby gown
You've seen better days
Like an old violin with the greatest tunes to play

The trains hypnotic rat-tat-tat
Lulls me into a disengaged trance
The hills and sheep and rabbit crap
Lead my feet a merry dance

And I can still remember the big kid who said
I'll swap you some nuts for one of my sweets
And the television room where they lit boxes of matches
And the pale blue paintwork now long gone

Tumbledown seaside town
Never shed your shabby gown
You've seen better days
Like an old violin with the greatest tunes to play
