Track Name: Sailing Away with You
Boats go sailing by
we'll sit all day here building castles in the sand
and you, you'll sit and watch with your girlfriends
as me and my buddys fool around

All I want is to be
here with you and it's so clear to me
Mmm, Mmm

The breakers wash on the shore line
the sun is high in the sky
and me I could sit and watch forever
as the sun lights up your face

All I want is to be
here with you and it's so clear to me
oh can't you see

I’m in love with you
Oh honey it's true, yes it’s true

I want to hold you close
Cause honey I love you the most
I want to sail away with you

Bridge

The boats go sailing by
the sun is high in the sky
and me I could sit and watch forever
as the sun lights up your face

All I want is to be
here with you and it's so clear to me
yes I believe

I’m in love with you
Oh honey it's true, yes it’s true

I want to hold you close
Cause honey I love you the most
I want to sail away with you

I want to be loving you
Oh honey it's true, yes it’s true
I want to be sailing away with you
with you, with you
Oh honey I love you
Yes I do, I love you
Track Name: The Biarritz of the North
I'm feeling tired and a little blue but I
know a place that'll get me through
it's a kinda nice if you get the weather
and the sun'll surely shine on you
We'll take a trip in my beat up car and
head along the coast
bring some friends and some bottles of wine
and share em with the ones we love the most

CHORUS
We can smile and leave our worries behind
We can kiss our blues away
save em up for a rainy day
we're heading for the Biarritz
we're going to the Biarritz
we'll be livin in the Biarritz
the Biarritz of the north

we'll get ourselves a little caravanette
with a view down to the shore
just you and me I can guarantee I
couldn't ask for more
take in the view from a seat at the harbour and
watch the world pass us by
say hello to all the lovely people
enjoying the bright blue sky

CHORUS
Intro
CHORUS

BRIDGE
and when the sun sets over the islands
and the tide has turned for the night
thank your lucky stars for a place like this
and with the ones you love we can reminisce

remember when we all got drunk and stupid
remember all the crazy things that you did
remember The times when we would dance and twist
oh!, shakin in the Biarritz
shakin in the Biarritz
shakin in the Biarritz

Chorus
Track Name: The Auld Hoose
I was walking the dog along the beach in the pouring rain
the west bay was empty of anything
I was wetter than the waves that were breaking on the shore
the dog was looking at me even he couldn't take much more

So I

Chorus
stopped by the Auld Hoose
and took a seat by the fire
I ordered up a beer and a packet of cheer
sitting in the Auld Hoose
just watching the world go by
I'll get another drink in, as everyone says hi

The following day the sun came out and I swear it was smiling at me
so I headed out to Seacliff for some peace and a swim in the deep blue sea
Then the tourists came and took away this beach that I called my own
and I looked at the dog and wondered should we just head back home

Instead I

Chorus

Bridge

Chorus

Stop by the Auld Hoose
Have a drink in the Auld Hoose
Make some friends in the Auld Hoose
And watch the world go by
Get another drink in
as everyone says hi

Everyone says hi
Everyone says hi
Everyone says hi
Everyone says hi
Track Name: Fidra Light
Fidra Light keep on shining
shine on and keep us safe from your shores
Oh Fidra light just keep on shining
Shine like a beacon to guide us safely home

There's a boat, away out on the water
so far away that my eyes can hardly see
This boat, it's a heading for the harbour
bring it home before it's taken by the sea

Cause there's a thunderstorm a coming, lightning's in sky
So dark and grey and heavy, pouring down with rain
See that raging storm a blowin, its nearly upon us
bringing no mercy, bringing only pain

Fidra Light keep on shining
shine on and keep us safe from your shores
Oh Fidra light just keep on shining
Shine like a beacon to guide us safely home

Bridge

I have seen how a raging storm at sea
will show no mercy for you or me
so shine that light, shine that light, shine that light

Fidra light keep on shining
Keep a shining your guidance out to sea
Oh Fidra light just keep on shining
bring all those sailors, safely home from sea
bring all those sailors home to thee
Track Name: The man that we all knew
Come sit for a minute
and I'll tell you a story
bout the man that we all knew
He's no longer with us
but I'm sure that he's with us
every day and every night

Chorus
Cause he's up there in the stars
a diamond in our hearts
look around you'll see him everywhere
in your memories yeah, yeah

Place a beer on the fence now
and I'm sure that he'll join us
in a toast with all his friends
come gather round people
you don't wanna miss any of this story
bout the man that we all knew

Chorus

Bridge

It's not that he's left us
He's just sailed out to the sunset
just over the horizon out of sight
Just look to the sky now
and pick out that shining star
it's the one he left in our hearts

Chorus

Come sit for a minute
and I'll tell you a story
bout the man that we all knew
