Surrounded by the North York Moors
And the North Sea at the other side
Is Whitby, the home of enjoyment.
Served by the Esk Valley Line
Four times a day
Is Whitby, a relaxing haven.
I went to Whitby recently
And thoroughly enjoyed it.
It has something for everyone.
It has the ruins of an abbey
And the Captain Cook Museum
And a beautiful harbour too.
The world’s tastiest prawns are available there
As well as the most beautiful espresso
In Whitby, the home of enjoyment.
So go along to Whitby
I promise you’ll enjoy it
And you won’t regret deciding to go there.
