Lyrics: Oh, Grimsby is a pleasant town as any man may find,
An' Grimsby wives are thrifty wives, an' Grimsby girls are kind;
An' Grimsby lads have never yet been lads to lag behind
When there's men's work doin' on the North Sea ground.

An' it's "Wake up, Johnnie" . . . for the high tide's flowin',
An' off the misty waters a cold wind blowin'; a cold wind blowin';

It's well we've learned to laugh at fear (the sea has taught us how);
It's well we've shaken hands with death — we'll not be strangers now,
With death in every climbin' wave before the trawler's bow,
And the black spawn swimmin' on the North Sea ground.

An' it's "Wake up, Johnnie" . . . for the high tide's flowin',
An' off the misty waters a cold wind blowin'; a cold wind blowin';

'Gorgeous vocals that come intimately to the forefront; the harmonies complimenting each other beautifully whilst each voice individually grabs and ravels you in, forcing you to listen intently' - For Folk's Sake (extract from EP review)

‘Really upbeat and kind of a lot of fun, another talented Totnes band’ – BBC Introducing
