Song Lyrics to Bridlington Bay Anthem:

"BRIDLINGTON BAY"
by Laurie Mitchell


I have sailed far across the sea,
But there's one place I'm longing to be,
Just to stand on the beach, at the break of the day,
And watch the sun rise o'er Bridlington Bay.

A walk on the cliffs to Flamborough Head,
Or stroll down the sands to Ulrome instead,
Or sit by the harbour, there to survey
The sun as it rises o'er Bridlington Bay.

Fishermen mending their nets by the quay,
Little boats bobbing up and down on the sea,
The sound of the waves as they reach for the shore,
Will live in my mem'ry for ever more.

The Groynes in the sand where I've sat for hours
The beautiful gardens all covered in flowers,
The little red roofs in their disarray,
And the sun as it rises o'er Bridlington Bay.

I long to see the Flamborough Light
Flashing it's message out into the night,
Warning the ships to keep well away,
Till the dawn starts to break o'er Bridlington Bay.

The Priory Church standing there all serene,
The trees so tall and the grass so green.
The birds on the cliffs as they fly so free,
Will linger for ever in my memory.

I'm going back to Bridlington town,
Can't wait to have my folks around,
And I'll stand on the beach at the break of the day,
And watch the sun rise o'er Bridlington Bay.
