Now doant you wish that you was born in Sussex by
the sea, Where every man's a famous man, as famous as can
be?— But take good comfort from the thought that 'neath
the wide blue sky, You cannot choose a better pleace than in Sussex fur
to die!
For it's good to live in Sussex, the land o' brave and
free, Where men are bruff and honest—such men as you
an' me; If you weren't born in Sussex, whoever you may be, Then come an' die in Sussex, sweet Sussex by the
Sea! "
[This song, which was sung at the annual dinner of the Men of Sussex Society, has been set to music by Mr. J. R. Dear, Mus. Bac, Master of the Music at the Pevensey Pageant.]
