Lyrics

When Cynthia’s eyes met Reg’s
He was lighting up a Benson & Hedges
Sipping a Panda Pops cherryade
In a brand new tracksuit by the penny arcade
Cynthia’s job was filling 2p machines
Reg worked down the garage all day fitting windscreens
Lived with his nan on our estate
Drove a Transit van, liked playing football with his mates

They’d sit at the end of the pier
He’d say, ‘I think that you can see Eastbourne from here’
She just said, ‘the sea looks really blue.’
They’d sit and share their fish & chips
She’d put her hand down his trousers and let him feel her tits
That’s how they knew their love was true
Then they’d say, ‘baby I love you.’
‘Baby I love you.’

When Cynthia’s eyes met Reg’s
He felt just like he’d known her for ages
His chat-up line was really short and sweet
Said she was glamorous enough to be on Coronation Street
She never did her GCEs
Her mum got sick she had to work at the factory
All she ever wanted was for someone to hold her
At the pictures late one night Reg slipped his arm round her shoulder

They’d sit at the end of the pier
He’d say, ‘I think that you can see Eastbourne from here’
She just said, ‘the sea looks really blue.’
They’d sit and share their fish & chips
She’d put her hand down his trousers and let him feel her tits
That’s how they knew their love was true
Then they’d say, ‘baby I love you.’
‘Baby I love you.’
