Chorus:

Berwick welcomes the world

Colours shining bright on our banners unfurled

Every man, every woman, every boy and girl

Berwick welcomes the world


Berwick Middle:

Down the High Street to the Town Hall

We've lots of places to show to you all

Meg's Mount, the Lighthouse and the Bell Tower

The Beaches, Bridges, Barracks and Walls


Chorus


St Cuthbert's RC:

See the waves splash upon the shore

Shellfish live on the sea floor

Boats catch fish here in their nets

The sea is dark and deep and wet


Chorus


Tweedmouth Prior Park 1st:

Long hair, short hair, freckles or moles

Light eyes, dark eyes, cheery souls

Tanned or pale, big or small

Fandabidocious, we welcome you all


Chorus


Berwick High:

Berwick is home

Sun shining down

There's a ray of sun

That lights up the town


Chorus


Tweedmouth West 1st:

See the horse, clippety-clop

Down the High Street, past the shops

Shiny coats and flowing manes

Pretty saddles and jangling reins


Chorus


Spittal Community 1st:

The Spittal Chimney touches the sky

Seagulls swoop from way up high

Lifeboats brave the swirling sea

Berwick is the place for you and me


Chorus


Tweedmouth Middle:

Swans swimming, salmon jumping

Berwick is the place; it's totally ace

In the town, there is history all around

Hanging with your friends, it's Berwick 'til the end
