A thousand barbecues, ignite!
I’ve never seen this town so alive,
everyone has been spilled.
Here on the Esplanade,
they’re taking off their coats
one at a time -
yes, the coastline is
The new neighbours seize the moment
and wash their car -
they have the cleanest car in England
and I know them now by their wet distorted faces.
They know me better, perhaps
better than anyone,
they’ve seen me dancing through the window.
