Down at the Harbour

Down at the harbour…
I hear seagulls squawking,
I hear fish and chips cooking,
I hear boats swaying in the wind.

Down at the harbour…
I see crabs in the sea,
I see a lifeboat on a mission,
I see people hand in hand.
Down at the harbour…

I smell seaweed on the rocks,
I smell chips sizzling in a pan,
I smell fish being brought onto land.
Down a the harbour…

I taste vinegar on my chips,
I taste ice cream melting onto my lips,
I taste sea salt wafting into my mouth.

Down at the harbour is the place I love to be!
