Here on these cliffs of Dover
And while your head is spinning

A childhood rough and rotten
Untouched by work or duty
And oh, my love, my love
We both go down together
I found you, a tattooed tramp
I laid you down on the grass of a clearing

And oh, my love, my love

But I hold your hand
Meet me on my vast veranda
And while the seagulls are crying

And oh, my love, my love
And oh, my love, my love
