Take Me Down To A Place In Surf City — Where The Sand Is Warm, and The Girls Are Pretty — Take Me Down
Mushi Muscle Beaching
Surf City, New Jersey
If another person bitches to me about the weather, ...
(I love the ellipsis. It might be the best device to avoid having to write what you really don't want to write about anyway.)
Well, if you don't like the weather here, then take a little trip in your mind. But, don't forget to lotion up!
"I said the beach be one of the best things we got,
Where it's not what you have on but what you not.
And I want that stink and I want that sweat,
In fact the beach be better than most things get.
In fact the beach be one of the best things we got.
Where it's not what you have on but what you have not.
Cruddy sugar lemonade, but I love people when they're on parade,
And the beach be one of the best things we got.
Where it's not what you have on, it's what you have not."
