Oh Blackpool
The Beautiful South Lyrics

I wasn't sure if it was Marx or Hitler that was in this year
I hadn't been to Brighton for a while so it wasn't too clear
So imagine my surprise when I opened my eyes
To find it was the Liberals who were hip to sloganeer

I'm out tonight and can't decide between Soviet hip or British pride

So help me out, so help me out
Blackpool help me out, Scarborough pull me through
So help me out

They wore enamel badges of David Steel on their sleeves
And nuclear power no thanks, not sure and yes please
And their faces were two fold and their teeth they were gold
And they wore their pinstripe suits with a rip at the knee

One of the few albums I actually bought when I was too young to mention, they were always all gems with Beautiful South


I saw this album amidst the hundreds of CDs my mum has, and I grabbed it because I liked the front picture so much. I didn't regret it.

Antonello Platino

Questa canzone mi fa impazzire.....è troppo bella

keasy man

I'll pick Soviet Hip, thanks.

WT:TBS is one iof those albums that were sold on the hits but, when listened to produce gems such as this!
Oh, blackpool and the Woman in the Wall are the two best racks on the album, for me anyway.

Huhnkie Lee

beautiful south, beautiful song


If every LD supporter had heard and understood this tune, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in today.




thanks for your comment. (it's a great and underrated album...)


I have been Jonesing for "Straight in at 37" and no one has uploaded. "So help me out..." Please. :)
