Here ya go.

Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom!
Where the brass bands play:
"Tiddely-om-pom-pom!"
So just let me be beside the seaside
I'll be beside myself with glee

And there's lots of girls beside,
I should like to be beside
Beside the seaside!
Beside the sea!

Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom!
Where the brass bands play:
"Tiddely-om-pom-pom!"
So just let me be beside the seaside
I'll be beside myself with glee
And there's lots of girls beside,
I should like to be beside
Beside the seaside!
Beside the sea!

From: GUEST,Den at work

I also found this:

Beside The Seaside

Everyone delights to spend their summer's holiday
Down beside the side of the silvery sea
I'm no exception to the rule
In fact, if I'd my way
I'd reside by the side of the silvery sea.
But when you're just the common or garden Smith or Jones or Brown
At bus'ness up in town
You've got to settle down.
You save up all the money you can till summer comes around
Then away you go
To a spot you know
Where the cockle shells are found.

Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom!
Where the brass bands play:
"Tiddely-om-pom-pom!"
So just let me be beside the seaside
I'll be beside myself with glee

And there's lots of girls beside,
I should like to be beside
Beside the seaside!
Beside the sea!

(8 bar interlude)

William Sykes the burglar,
He'd been out to work one night
Filled his bag with jewels, cash, and plate.
Constable Brown felt quite surprised when William hove in sight
Said he: "The hours you're keeping are far too late."
So he grabbed him by the collar and lodged him safe and sound in jail
Next morning looking pale
Bill told a tearful tale.
The judge said, "For a couple of months I'm sending you away!"
Said Bill: "How kind!
Well! If you don't mind
Where I spend my holiday!"

Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom!
Where the brass bands play:
"Tiddely-om-pom-pom!"
So just let me be beside the seaside
I'll be beside myself with glee
And there's lots of girls beside,
I should like to be beside
Beside the seaside!
Beside the sea

Is "I do like to be beside the seaside" a British Folk song?. Then God help us.I don't think so. Especially as it was written by a pair of professional songwriters. It's a jolly song for the singing and it is ingrained in the memories of a vast number of UK people, but Folk song ? Nah... you might just as well call "Can't buy me love" a folk song.

Any song's a folk song, so long as people sing it themselves. Perhaps you mean "traditional song".

I sing Norwegian Wood and, when I sing it, it's a folk song.

OK?

It's a music hall song, which is a legitimate genre in its own right. No problems with crossover, I hope? And don't forget, even traditional songs were written ("created" if yo prefer) by someone originally; not by pros, of course. A folk song is a song they'll let you sing in a folk club. It took me about twenty years to suss that out!

Anyone got a tune to go with the verses? Its one of those songs that everyone knows the chorus and the rest has slipped out of use but it could be fun.

Isn't this the same song Basil Rathbone sang (as Holmes in disguise as a music hall singer, of course) in "The Adventures ..." ?

Here's the tune. I've taken it from the book 'Cockney Ding Dong' by Charles Keeping, published 1975.

Indeed it is Buck. A fellow, Holmsian? I do love the sinister flute melody in that film (to my mind one of the best of the Rathbone catalogue)

Ed - not exactly a Baker St. Irregular, but I do enjoy the Great Detective. Especially the middle years of the Brett series - best damn Sherlock on film.

As a bit of a Holmsean myself, I must say that, having read the entire canon, some of it several times, and heard/seen much of it in radio and tv adaptations, the Rathbone films are a bit of a joke. Most of them are "based on the characters created by ACD", but with invented stories not based on the originals. They fall into that genre of "so bad they're good"; very entertaining, but only of value as curiosities to the true Baker St buff.

Does that sound a bit arrogant? Good!

Yes - they're a "thing unto themselves" Quite enjoyable but sort of apocryphal to the canon. More important than the story divergences is the fact that the characterizations of H&W are nothing like Doyle's characters.

Previously posted were the first and third verses. Here is the second.

Timothy went to Blackpool (Brighton) for the day last Eastertide,
To see what he could see by the side of the sea,
Soon as he reached the station there, the first thing he espied,
Was the Wine Lodge door, stood open invitingly,
To quench his thirst, he toddled inside, and called out for a wine,
Which grew to eight or nine, till his nose began to shine,
Said he "What people see in the sea I'm sure I fail to see!"
So he caught the train back home again, then to his wife said he!

The first chord of Oh I do Like to be beside the seaside is an augmented chord. Whenever I'm trying to identify the chord in a song. I use OIDLTBBTS as an aide memoire.

Mark Sheridan (1867-1918) made the song famous. A recently issued CD of Sheridan recordings includes his 1909 version of 'Seaside'- Music Hall Masters MHM011 from Julian Myerscough, 7 AlexandraRoad, Lowestoft NR32 1PH.
