about

Slowish blues with unconventional chord changes and a story contrasting the heroism of D-day soldiers to the lives of today’s lazy beachgoers.

lyrics

BASKING ON THIS BEACH TODAY, I SMILE AND WATCH THE CHILDREN PLAY
AND THINK OF ALL THOSE MEN WHEN THEY,
LAID DOWN THE LIVES WE LAZE AWAY
SEASIDE STROLLS WHERE DEATH KNELLS TOLLED, AT ARROMANCHES

LAUGHTER FROM A CRASHING WAVE, ANGRY MUMS WHEN NONE BEHAVE
WE ALL FORGET HOW MUCH THEY GAVE,
AS THEY WENT EARLY TO THEIR GRAVE
SEASIDE STROLLS WHERE DEATH KNELLS TOLLED, AT ARROMANCHES

HISTORY IS LEFT UNSAID, PICNICS EATEN TABLOIDS READ
AS YOU LIE SNOOZING OVER-FED, REMEMBER ONCE THE SEAS RAN RED
AT ARROMANCHES

NOT FOR THEM THESE FAMILY TRIPS,
SOME NEVER LEFT THEIR LANDING SHIPS
OR GOT DRAGGED UNDER BY THE RIPS,
BLOOD NOT ICE-CREAM ON THEIR LIPS
SEASIDE STROLLS WHERE DEATH KNELLS TOLLED, AT ARROMANCHES

LET US HOPE WHEN THEY LOOK DOWN,
ON FRACAS AT THIS SEASIDE TOWN
THE FREEDOM THAT THEY SEE'S OUR GAIN
MIGHT MEAN THEIR DEATHS WERE NOT IN VAIN, AT ARROMANCHES
