We walked along a road by day
not knowing where we were,
sixpence for a cup of tea
a thirsty him, a tired her.

A day along the road of sea,
each footstep marked advance
paths of blithe discovery
but not the South of France.

In the distance loomed a pier
it led to distant seas
but Blighty was the land we trod
as British was the breeze.

In nearby times, yet to come
you'll even fly to Spain
perhaps to see a bullfight
and wallow in champagne.

But in this simple cafe
we sip on British tea
A humble life, a simple pair
sixpennyworth of pedigree.

Refers to Southend Pier (Essex) and how simple acts of kindness can be remembered for a lifetime.
