As I lay dreaming in my bed across the   great  di-vide.
I thought I heard the trawler boats - returning on the tide.
And in this vision of my home the shingle  beach did ring.
     I saw the lights along the pier - that made my senses sing.

Oh oh-oh, Grimsby, a thousand delights -
     couldn't match the sweet sights of-of-of my Grimsby.
Oh, England you're fair but there's none to compare with my Grimsby.
Thru nights of mad youth I've loved every sluice in your harbor.
And in your wild sands from boyhood to man -
strangers have found themselves fathers.

Take me back you rustic town, I miss your  ma - gic charm.
Just to smell your candy floss or drink in the Skinners Arms.
No Cordon Bleu can match the beauty of  your  pies and peas.
I want to ride your fairground.   Take air along the quay.

Oh oh-oh, Grimsby, a thousand delights -
     couldn't match the sweet sights of-of-of my Grimsby.
Oh, England you're fair but there's none to compare with my Grimsby.
Thru nights of mad youth I've loved every sluice in your harbor.
And in your wild sands from boyhood to man -
strangers have found themselves fathers.

Oh oh-oh, Grimsby, a thousand delights -
     couldn't match the sweet sights of-of-of my Grimsby.
Oh, England you're fair but there's none to compare with my Grimsby.
Thru nights of mad youth I've loved every sluice in your harbor.
And in your wild sands from boyhood to man -
strangers have found themselves fathers.
