Here you are:
^^
THE BLACKPOOL BELLE by Howard Broadbent and Jimmy Smith

The Blackpool Belle was a get-away train that went from Northern Stations,
What a beautiful sight on a Saturday night, bound for the 'luminations.
No mothers or dads, just girls and lads, young and fancy-free
Out for the laughs on the Golden Mile at Blackpool by the Sea.

CHORUS: I remember them very well
All the happy gang aboard the Blackpool Belle.
I remember them pals of mine
When I ride the Blackpool Line,
And the songs we sang together on the Blackpool Belle.

Little Piggy Greenfield he was there. He thought he was mighty slick.
He bought a hat on the Golden Mile. The hat said "Kiss me quick".
Piggy was a lad for all the girls, but he drank too much beer.
He made a pass at a Liverpool lass and she pushed him off the pier. CHORUS

Ice-cream Sally could never settle down. She lived for her Knickerbocker Glories,
Till she clicked with a bloke who said he was broke; she loved his ice-cream stories.
Sally took it all in with a smile and a grin. She fell for Sailor Jack.
He went for a trip to the Isle of Man and never did come back. CHORUS

Some of us went up the Blackpool Tower and others in the Tunnel of Love.
A few made off for the Blackpool Sands under the pier above.
There was always a rush at the midnight hour, but we made it just the same,
And I made off with a Liverpool lass, but I never could remember her name. CHORUS

The Blackpool Belle has a thousand tales if they could all be told.
Many of these I will recall as I am growing old.
They were happy days and I miss the times we pulled the curtains down,
And the passion wagon would steam back home and we would go to town. CHORUS

Cheers
Mark

Has anyone got the music to the Blackpool Belle.
I am a musician (keyboard) playing for dancing including sequence
dancing and this dance has come back into vogue after quite a few years away.   I desperately need the music.

There is no karaoke version of "Blackpool Belle".
Howard has not released the rights for it.

I heard this on Spotify:


THE BLACKPOOL BELLE
As sung by Howard Broadbent on "The Blackpool Belle: Songs from Lancashire, UK" (2012)

[The words are the same as those posted above except for this verse:]

2. We had Tennessee Ernie, Frankie Laine, and Crying Johnny Ray.
We played the jukebox over again like they do today.
Girls wore stockings and suspenders; oi(?), I had a time,
Pretending I was Nat King Cole and Dickie Valentine.
