Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, where she sells seashells by the seashore. Ironically, given the fact that I live by the seaside, I don’t really know any seaside songs other than those bits of those two. Perhaps I missed that day at school. Whilst I’ve never been one for seaside songs, I have always been one for the seaside: I’ve lived in a seaside town my whole life, and the thought of living elsewhere is an odd one.
