Verse 1:

Fmaj7              G           C        C/B    Am    Am/G
 Fine rock-pooling coast, this starfish on the toast,
    Fmaj7                           G
The men in the crabbing boats, they cry.

Verse 2:

Fmaj7           G             C         C/B   Am   Am/G
 Far across the harbour, and 'round the sandy cove,
    Fmaj7                              G
The shepherd with his pipe and sheepy, drove.

Verse 3:

Fmaj7               G           C      C/B    Am  Am/G
 Big cloud tumbling high, the a-mazing flying sky,
Fmaj7                            G
 How the gulls are pillaging the town.

Verse 4:

    Fmaj7           G   C       C/B   Am    Am/G
Fan faring daffodil-ly, trumpet-ingly small,
Fmaj7                      G
 All along the bathing hut wall.

Verse 5:

Fmaj7           G                C        C/B       Am    Am/G
 Far across the empty beach, the tide has left this world,
Fmaj7                        G
 Old men in tweed find study there.

Verse 6:

Fmaj7               G            C        C/B    Am   Am/G
 Holding whelks and periwinkles, tingling in his hand.
Fmaj7                              G
 Little does he know they hold him too.

Verse 7:

Fmaj7              G           C        C/B    Am    Am/G
 Fine rock-pooling coast, this starfish on the toast,
    Fmaj7                           G
The men in the crabbing boats, they cry.
