Lyrics:

Bye, bye, my Whitstable Girl,
Lord knows, we had our fun.
You and I, we gave it a whirl,
What else could we have done?

Remember those halcyon days in May
When all our cares seemed to fade away,
Two love-birds merrily making hay
Underneath the sun.

Bye, bye, my Whitstable Girl,
Lord knows we had our fun.
You and I, we gave it a whirl,
What else could we have done?

Why, oysters strolling beside the sea,
Delighted to have your company.
Now tell me, what shall we have for tea?
Answer came there none.

Bye bye, my Whitstable Girl,
Lord knows we had our fun.
You and I, we gave it a whirl,
What else could we have done?

High tide o'er-topping the harbour wall,
The fate of nations too close to call.
Lord only knows where the dice will fall.
Lives lost and won.

Bye, bye, my Whitstable Girl,
Lord knows we had our fun.
You and I, we gave it a whirl,
What else could we have done?
Why, girl, what else could we have done?
