The mist rolls off the beaches:
The train rolls into the station.
Weekend happiness seekers pent-up saturation.
Well, we don't mean anyone any harm,
We weren't on the Glasgow train.
See you at the Pleasure Beach:
Roller-coasting heroes.
Big Dipper riding
We'll give the local lads a hiding
If they keep us from the ladies
Hanging out in the penny arcades.
Shaking up the Tower Ballroom
Throwing up in the bathroom.
Landlady's in the backroom
I'm the Big Dipper
