We'll head for Devon in my Hillman Minx
where the coastline hems the shore
So run with me to where the cliffs of chalk
are a proud promontory
Run with me to where the air is clean
lets lead a pure and simple life
Dreams like these
can come to pass

This English Summer
We're gonna have fun fun fun
Run with me
This English Summer

The bells will peal from the village church
upon a perfect summers day
Honeysuckle scent will be the air
as the parishioners kneel to pray
So let me take you where a tranquil sea
will dance the diamonds of the sun
Forget the suburbs now
lets go on holiday

This English Summer

I believe that in the name of progress
we have lost more than we've gained
I believe we should protect and cherish
what little now remains
So run with me to where the strawberry jam
is served with cream and buttered scones
English seaside town
Fit for a King

This English Summer

I believe we should erect a wall
to keep do-gooders out
The 'not-in-my-backyard' soft leather shoe brigade
can pad around outside
The left aren't right but then the right aren't left
can I see you pants
Lets run away
to boulders warm
