Sholing by the Sea

Down on Englands southern coast, i have a friend (you know)
he's living his life with wedded wife, as the tonnage comes & goes

He has a Dad as people do.. who lives not far away 
and when i eat a banana, i recall a thing he'll say

Not that my nose (or anyones) is larger than his own! 
its just a line of kid (thats all,) from a kid at heart, who's fully grown..

I hold them both in great regard, these friends of many years
(i know i've laughed with both of them) till my eyes were filled by tears"

And times as i'll think on Maurice and his Dad, wherever i happen to be..) 
i know that they'll smile when they speak my name, at Sholing by the Sea.
