Down by the sea
That's where we wanted to be
With nothing to do

Down by the sea
Don't tell me that isn't what
You wanted to do

We sold the house, the car, the TV, the dog
Hopin' we were on our way

Down by the sea
Don't tell me that isn't what
You wanted to do

We had the children remember
John, Phillip, Susan
Alice, Carol, Teddy, Bobby, Jenny
I think you had one too many
But I hope I'm not out of line

Cause now it's forty years after the laughs at the wedding
And I'm dreading retirement, what would I do?
The children are married
And now the big question
is "Was it all worth it?"
And who buries who?
You bury me or I bury you?

Down by the sea
Don't tell me
that's isn't what you wanted to do

Down by the sea
It's where you wanted to be baby, just me and you

We sold the house, the car, the TV, the dog, the duke
and we were on our way

Down by the sea
Don't tell me that isn't what you wanted
To do

We had the children remember
John, Phillip, Susan
Alice, Carol, Teddy, Bobby, Jenny
I think you had one too many
But I hope I'm not out of line

Cause it's forty years after the laughs at the wedding
And I'm dreading retirement, what would I do?
The children are married
And now the big question
is "Was it all worth it?"
And who buries who?
You bury me or I bury you?

Down by the sea
That's where we wanted to be with nothing to do

Down by the sea
Don't tell me that's not what you wanted
To do, to do

We sold the house, the pope, the dope, the bear
the rug, the cart . . .


We had the children remember
Ringo, Jimmy, Claus, Sneaky, Jesse
Dany, Bobby, Keith, Shane, Harry, John, Roy...
