I Mustn't Go Down To The Sea Again


sunken yachtsmen
sinking yards
drunken Scotsmen
drinking hard
every lunatic and his friend
i mustn't go down to the sea again

the ocean drags
its drowning men
emotions flag
me down again
tell tracy babs and gwen
i mustn't go down to the sea again

the rain whips
the promenade
it drips on chips
they turn to lard
i'd send a card if i had a pen
i mustn't go down to the sea again

a string of pearls
from the bingo bar
for a girl
who looks like ringo starr
she's mad about married men
i mustn't go down to the sea again

the clumsy kiss
that ends in tears
how i wish
i wasn't here
tell tony mike and len
i mustn't go down to the sea again
