lyrics

Let's stroll from Hengistbury towards Sandbanks,
Along old Dorset shores,
To a place that's not without awards,
For all its chances to explore,
One day they found the River Bourne,
Perfect to build some things upon,
Like an Air Show or an Imax,
Some stayed and some moved on...

Well every year you needn't travel far,
To find skies as blue as Avatar,
'Cos CGI don't know why you'd need anywhere else,

This is Bournemouth,
Enjoy the south,
Where seven golden miles stretch out,
The greenest open spaces fit for Kings and Queens,
Sight-seeing sea life and island scenes,
Is second nature for a coast it seems the world adores,
You just can't fake the views,
And you'll want to be here too,

We're that international kind of town,
Each time another plane Lansdowne at Hurn,
They come from miles around,
To see Brownsea, blue sea, and BU Proud,
When the sun stops glistening off the boats,
And fresh breezes start to Russell Coates,
We don't sleep, that's so much nonsense,
With a pair of piers,
We're ripe for a conference in winter as well,
Ride the zip-wire in thermal socks,
'Cos everyone here can tell,
Shelley's grave is all write but Old Harry Rocks,

Well this is Bournemouth,
Enjoy the south,
Where seven golden miles stretch out,
The greenest open spaces fit for Kings and Queens,
Sight-seeing sea life and island scenes,
Is second nature for a coast it seems the world adores,
You just can't fake the views,
And you'll want to be here too,

Hotels and cuisine from round the world,
Just pick your flavour,
And so many woodland walks it's like Straight Outta Compton Acres,
Well you can count up Sixty Million reasons our Grade II listed
Pavilion,
Is worth a visit, so grab a ticket,
We'll meet you down the front for a first-class night,

Well this is Bournemouth,
We gave the Earth choirmasters and cheese farmers,
Plus flying bat men and a TV talent judge,
Sight-seeing sea life and island scenes,
Is second nature for a coast it seems the world adores,
You just can't fake the views,
And you'll want to be here too,
We know you'd love to be here too,
We'd love you to be here too.

The friendly Power Pop Punk Rock writings of a south-coasterly 26-year old.

Adam's refreshingly pop-flavoured, punk-tinted, atmosphere-rife, harmonic musters come straight from the heart of "one of Bournemouth's better lyricists" (Rock Regeneration).
