Here is a town
of warm sun and cold sea
snug by the shore.
Here lovers talk
over Long Island Tea
forever more.

A stranger to mercy,
a stranger to grace.
A danger to anyone,
a touch out of place.

Here is a town
where the vain take their fun
to an extreme.
Here on a beach
many bask in the sun
and reign supreme.

if you want to you can meet:

Chorus
A stranger to mercy,
a stranger to grace.
A danger to anyone,
a touch out of place.

Verse 3
Here is a town
of Victorian style
penny arcades.
Here is a band
who will play for a while
sweet serenades.

On this corner of my street
if you want to you can meet:

A stranger to mercy,
a stranger to grace.
A danger to anyone,
a touch out of place.

A stranger to mercy,
a stranger to grace.
A danger to anyone,
a touch out of place.

A stranger to mercy,
a danger to anyone.
