Whitby harbour inspires many seaside songs

Whitby’s Seaside Song

We love it when people get in touch with us and share their love of our wonderful town on the Yorkshire coast. The Osborn family have recently shared a seaside song with us. They’ve written it themselves and sing it on every trip to Whitby.

Our family love Whitby and have written a family song to sing whenever we are there. It goes to the tune of, ‘Hit me with your Rhythm Stick’ by Ian Dury and the Blockheads.

It’s always just been a bit of fun but then it occurred to us that it would make a really good advert for Whitby. It takes in all the things we love about going there so we feels it really sums up the town as well as making us laugh.

All the best, the Osborn family.

Crank up the tunes and check out their wonderful seaside song below.

Whitby with your fish and chips

Through the bracken, across the moors,

To the late-night Vampire tours,

From deck chair snores on sea washed shores

And eating scampi out of doors

 

Whitby with your fish and chips Whitby! Whitby!

Angling trips and pirate ship, Whitby! Whitby! Whitby!

Whitby with your fish and chips

Kiss me slowly, kiss me quick.

Whitby! Whitby! Whitby!

 

From Ryedale wine and local ales

To Endeavour’s unfurled sails

From watching whales to smuggler’s tales

And riding steam across the rails

 

Whitby with your fish and chips Whitby! Whitby!

Angling trips and pirate ship, Whitby! Whitby! Whitby!

Whitby with your fish and chips

Milk-shake sips and ice cream drips.

Whitby! Whitby! Whitby!

 

Stroll the clifftops for the day

All along the Cleveland way

Caedmon’s Trod, Robin Hood’s Bay

Over hills and far away

 

Whitby with your fish and chips, Whitby! Whitby!

Angling trips and pirate ship, Whitby! Whitby! Whitby!

Whitby with your fish and chips

Jet black jewellery, seaside gifts.

Whitby! Whitby! Whitby!

 

Whitby with your fish and chips

Whitby! Whitby! WHITBEEEEEEEEE!
