ďThe rolling rhythm of the sea
Still sings its soothing harmonyĒ Dsnyder
People rave about the sea
About how romantic it can be.
Especially walking hand in hand
Or sitting on a blanket in the sand
With wine, candlelight and a lover.
Well, Iím here to say,
Donít judge a book by itsí cover.
For if you do, you may discover
the sea is not the romantic place
that itís cracked up to be.
Especially at a beach in California.
For it happened once to me.
I took a girlfriend to the sea
For a romantic night and dinner.
We brought candles, wine and a blanket for cover
But we didnít realize how cold and windy
That darn place can be.
Man, it was downright cold.
I had to chuck the candles
(they wouldnít light)
Sand and cork bits fell into our wine
(so it didnít taste right)
Sand invaded her panties
(she complained about it all night)
To make matters worse
A life guard jeep creeped up.
The man shined his spotlight on us
So half-naked we stumbled back to my car
after receiving a five minute lecture.
Not only were we happy not to get arrested,
but we were relieved to get far away.
For the stern life guard told us that
A cute young couple had been stabbed and robbed
at that very place just the other day.
So the next time you want to visit the sea (at night)
To make passionate love to your lover.
Bring candles, wine, and a blanket for cover
but turn left when you hit the beach
And rent a nice, luxurious hotel suite.
Then after making passionate love,
raise a wine glass to your loverís smile
And listen closely to the sea
Singing itsí peaceful harmony.
