We met, deep down in Somerset

A time I can't forget

When we were sippin' cider in the shade

Oh the sun was setting in the West

You looked your very best that night

Stars were shining in your eyes

And we walked, walked all along the sand

And it felt, felt like a wonderland

And when the summer breeze was gone

The memory lingered on

You and me down in Somerset

Instrumental break

Oh we walked, walked and walked and walked all along the sand

And it felt just like our love just began

And when the summer breeze was gone

The memory lingered on, me and you

When the summer set

We met, we met, we met deep down in Somerset

A time I can't forget

You were sippin' cider in the shade
