We do like to be beside the seaside

Now we like to spend our summers free
down by, not under the silvery sea.
But when your name is Ali or Shareef
and your town is torn down
You save your money all year around.
Then away you go to a place you do not know, lost to be found.

Oh! we do like to be beside the seaside!
We do like to be beside the sea!
We do like to stroll along the Prom, Prom, Prom!
Without any bomb, bomb, bombs!

So just let them be beside the seaside
We do like to be free
For there's lots of space besides,
For those who like to be beside
Beside the seaside! Away from the sea!
