So you can practice, here are the lyrics from Chas and Dave themselves. We’ll have them for you on the day.

Well I’ve been working hard to reach me target
To earn a few bob for a day trip down to Margate
I’m gonna blow the lot tomorrow on all me family
We catch the coach at eight so don’t be late, were off to see the sea

Hurry up will ya Grandad, come on were going

Down to Margate, don’t forget your buckets and spades and cossys and all
Down to Margate, we’ll have a pill of jellied eels at the cockle stall
Down to Margate, we’ll go on the pier and we’ll have a beer aside of the sea

Down to Margate, you can keep the Costa Brava, I’m telling ya mate I’d rather have a day down Margate with all me family

Along the promenade we spend some money
And we find a spot on the beach that’s simply sunny
The kids will all enjoy themself digging up the sand, collecting stones and winkle shells to take back home to nan

Behave yourself Grandad, or you won’t be going

Down to Margate, don’t forget your buckets and spades and cossies and all
Down to Margate, we’ll have a pill of jellied eels at the cockle stall
Down to Margate, we’ll go on the pier and we’ll have a beer aside of the sea
You can keep the Costa Brava and all that palava, going no farther, me i’d rather have me a day down Margate with all me family

Until tomorrow!
