oh blackpool lyrics – beautiful south

i wasn’t sure if it was marx or hitler
that was in this year
i hadn’t been to brighton for a while
so it wasn’t too clear

so imagine my surprise
when i opened my eyes
to find it was the liberals
who were hip to sloganeer

i’m out tonight and can’t decide
between soviet hip or british pride
i’m out tonight and can’t decide
between soviet hip or british pride

so help me out, so help me out
so blackpool help me out
so scarborough pull me through
so help me out

they wore enamel badges
of david steel on their sleeves
and nuclear power, no thanks
not sure and yes please

and their faces were two fold
and their teeth they were gold
and they wore their pinstripe suits
with a rip at the knee

i’m out tonight and can’t decide
between soviet hip or british pride
i’m out tonight and can’t decide
between soviet hip or british pride

so help me out, so help me out
so blackpool help me out
so scarborough help me out
so help me out
