SITTING ON THE TOP OF BLACKPOOL TOWER-1957
TV broadcast

Now we all have our hobbies nowadays, and my hobby I think is so devine.
I never go out on a hike, play golf or ride a bike,
But here's how I spend all my time, you'll find me

Sitting on the top of Blackpool Tower
When the evening shadows fall
There you'll find me hour after hour
While seagulls up above, drop messages of love

They call it breezy Blackpool as everybody knows,
And when you're on t' top o' tower by gum it blows and blows
We don't where the wind comes from
But we all know where it goes
Sitting on the top of Blackpool Tower

Sitting on the top of Blackpool Tower
When the evening shadows fall
There you'll find me hour after hour
While seagulls up above, drop messages of love

A girl was learning swimming, she was so big and tall
Her boyfriend held her tightly for fear that she would fall
And the things I thoought were water wings weren't water wings at all
Sitting on the top of Blackpool Tower

Sitting on the top of Blackpool Tower
When the evening shadows fall
There you'll find me hour after hour
While seagulls up above, drop messages of love

They've got a fortune teller in't Tower, bear in mind
She said to one fat lady, don't think that I'm unkind
I'd like to tell your future but your future's all behind
I've seen it from the top of Blackpool Tower

Sitting on the top of Blackpool Tower
When the evening shadows fall
There you'll find me hour after hour
While seagulls up above, drop messages of love

Down there on the sandhills I hear a happy throng
One chap with his girlfriend kept bursting into song
But later on he sang, "Oh lor you made the night too long",
Sitting on the top of Blackpool Tower.
