Verse 1:

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

Verse 2:

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

Verse 3:

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

Verse 4:

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

Verse 5:

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

Verse 6:

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

Verse 7:

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