lyrics

With headlamps cast into the monochrome, the minstrels of the thunderdome,
we came from distant black holes and into the light

We'd shed our broken skins of blood and rust, forgetting that we came from dust
and ashes and return ourselves to salt and sand

Those were the days when you and I, we knew where where we belonged
Those were the days my love when I, could still turn you on a sixpence

Oh Danny boy, sing me a song from when I used to make her smile
'cause the seaside ain't the seaside without Seaside Danny Wilde
Oh Danny, there but for the grace of whatever god you embrace
it was those seaside days that saved us, and those days will never die
'cause the seaside ain't the seaside without Seaside Danny Wilde

We'd dance upon the tattooed faces of the shaven-headed master-racers
plastered on the promenade by day

And then upon the tacky ballroom floors beneath the splintered glitter balls
in caravan site function halls by night

Those were the days when you and I, we knew where where we belonged
Those were the days my love when I, could still turn you on a sixpence

Oh Danny boy, sing me a song from when I used to make her smile
'cause the seaside ain't the seaside without Seaside Danny Wilde
Oh Danny, there but for the grace of whatever god you embrace
it was those seaside days that saved us, and those days will never die
'cause the seaside ain't the seaside without Seaside Danny Wilde

Now it's just you and me, oh Danny boy, the last men standing, dead men walking
stranded on the platforms of our heyday

We're burning fossils, turning into smoke, a cartoon picture-postcard joke
and Billy Butlin's turning in his grave

These are the days I thought that I would never have to pass
now everything is built to break
and nothing ever lasts – forever....

Oh Danny boy, sing me a song from when I used to make her smile
'cause the seaside ain't the seaside without Seaside Danny Wilde
Oh Danny, there but for the grace of whatever god you embrace
it was those seaside days that saved us, and those days will never die
'cause the seaside ain't the seaside without Seaside Danny Wilde
