PIER END SHOW
The paint is cracked and peeling where you see the fading stars
Working in the pier end show
And the groups that almost made it in the 60?s record charts
Working in the pier end show
The iron work is rusting
The buildings not too strong
It shudders when the winds begin to blow
And the structural engineer says it cannot last for long
At the end of the pier show
At the end of the pier show

There?s the slight of hand magician with his pack of greasy cards
Working in the pier end show
And the pair of aging acrobats with tatty leotards
Working in the pier end show
A group of teenage dancers only half of them in step
A comic with a wig that really shows
And a group of student actors who believed they were in rep
At the end of the pier show
At the end of the pier show

There?s the man who did impressions but they sounded all the same
Working in the pier end show
And the Geordie Belly dancer who spent winters on the game
Working in the pier end show
The people that still come here have their minds on other things
The profits and the pay have ceased to flow
And the demolition company is waiting in the wings
At the end of the pier end show
At the end of the pier end show

There?s the almost skilful juggler who kept dropping all his clubs
Working in the pier end show
And the lady on piano who can?t keep out of the pubs
Working in the pier end show
The seagulls have deserted it, the public stay away
The sands of time are shifting down below
And only preservationists come visiting today
At the end of the pier end show
At the end of the pier end show

There?s the strongman and knife thrower who it?s better to avoid
Working in the pier end show
And the candy floss assistant who remembers Marie Lloyd
Working in the pier end show
The what the butler saw machine?s not working anymore
The pierots nor the punch and judy show
There?s a cast of 27 and an audience of 4
At the end of the pier end show
At the end of the pier end show

?Burbage?
