Oh I do love to be beside the seaside...This was going to be a jolly celebration of old-fashioned seaside fun (honest) - but songs seldom turn out quite how you planned...
CHORUSTake me to the end of the pierI'm having such a good time, I wish you were hereI've got money in my pocket for fish and chips and beerSo take me to the end of the pier
I want to see a show tonight, I want to sing and laugh out loudI don't want to be alone tonight, I want to fade into the crowdUntil the final curtain falls, I'll forget about it allSo take me to the end of the pier
Take me to the funfair, show me how it feels to flyI want to ride the roller coaster, see the world go racing byAnd spinning into space, I may find some kind of graceSo take me to the end of the pier
Between the roar of the traffic and the sound of the seaWhere the land meets the water, that's where I need to beThis world gets too hard sometimes, the waves can be too roughBut to walk out over the water one last time may be enough
Take me on a pleasure boat, for a trip around the bayLet the rolling of the ocean rock my cares awayAnd all the tears I've cried will be washed out with the tideSo take me to the end of the pier
