Verse:
You can honeymoon
in old Cancun,
you can walk the talk
in Frank’s New York,
you can catch a plane
to southern Spain,
and show your form
in Benidorm,
you can make your home
in sunny Rome,
but there’s one thing I’ve got to say,
on any day,
in any way,
give me London by the sea.

Verse:
You can flash your tan
in chic Milan,
you may disagree
in gay Paree,
You can stroll the shore
in Singapore,
or sail a while
the River Nile,
even show your face
in outer space,
but there’s one thing I’ve got to say,
on any day,
in any way,
give me London by the sea.

Middle 8:
London by the sea
with a glass of G&T
and a song by Kiki Dee,
that’s the place for me.

Verse:
Well, who gives a damn
for Birmingham?
And you think you’re cool
in Liverpool?
You can keep your snow
in Walthamstow,
and I’ll never go
to Scarpa Flow,
or fish for bait
in a Menai Strait.
There’s one thing I’ve got to say,
on any day,
in any way,
on any day,
in any way,
on any day,
in any way,
give me London by the sea.
