Sitting On The Sands All Night-1936
  Regal Zonophone MR2232 Formby/Gifford/Cliffe

On the seaside sands all day though folks may romp and lark
There's heaps of fun and a lot more done on the sands when it gets dark

It's nice to watch the breezes blow, and when the moon shines bright
You can sometimes see a lot of funny things through sitting on the sands all night.
The courting couples side by side all hug each other tight
Many chaps have got a lot to answer for through sitting on the sands all night.

Morning comes and when the day's peeping through
You start waving to the waves and the waves wave back to you.
The tide comes up and all your clothes are soon washed out of sight,
Then you walk home in a little seaweed shirt, through sitting on the sands all night.

One girl had blisters through the sun, her shoulders looked a sight
Now she's got another blister somewhere else, through sitting on the sands all night.
A policeman shines his lamp on you, and chuckles with delight
For the rest of the week you'll find the whole darn force sitting on the sands all night.

Morning comes and when the day's peeping through
You start waving to the waves and the waves wave back to you.
A kiltedScotchman climbed the tower and reached the dizzy heights
With electric torches there were fifty girls, sitting on the sands all night.

The beach pyjamas that you wear, you wonder why they're tight
Then you find somebody with their legs in yours through sitting on the sands all night
The nursemaid lost the twins one day but found them quite all right
With a hat-pin picking at the winkles they were sitting on the sands all night.

Morning comes and when the day's peeping through,
You start waving to the waves and the waves wave back at you.
You start feeling rather stiff then find that your stuck tight
With a boat hook sticking in your Westward Ho through sitting on the sands all night.
