Brighton in the Rain Lyrics

I’ve never been to Athens, and I’ve never been to Rome.
I’ve only seen the pyramids in picture books at home.
I’ve never sailed across the sea or been inside a plane.
I’ve always spent my holidays in Brighton in the rain.
I’ve never eaten foreign food or drunk in a foreign bar.
I’ve never kissed a foreign girl or driven a foreign car.
I’ve never had to find my way in a country I don’t know.
I’ve always known just where I am and where I’ll never go.
I’ve read travel books by writers who have been to Pakistan.
I’ve heard people telling stories of adventures in Iran.
I’ve watched TV documentaries about China and Brazil.
But I’ve never been abroad myself It’s making me feel ill.
I’ve studied several language like Hindi and Malay.
I’ve learnt lots of useful sentences I’ve never been able to say.
The first of place I’ve ever been was to the Isle of Man.
And that was full of tourist from Kores and Japan.
I’ve never been to Athens, and I’ve never been to Rome.
I’ve only seen the pyramids in picture books at home.
I’ve never sailed across the sea or been inside the plane.
I’ve always spent my holidays in Brighton in the rain.
