Ramblin', where to begin
I taste the summer on your peppery skin
Been saved, the warmer the waves
I felt us slip into a watery grave
Oh oh, ah ha ho
La-di-da-da-da, ah ha ha oh-oh

My girl, linen and curls
Lips parting like a flag all unfurled
She's grand, the bend of her hand
Digging deep into the sweep of the sand
Oh oh, ah ha ho
La-di-da-da-da, ah ha ha oh-oh

And summer arrives (ba-ba ba ba)
With a length of lights (ba-ba ba ba)
And summer blows away
And quietly it gets swallowed by a wave
It gets swallowed by a wave

Waylay the din of the day
Boats bobbing in the blue of the bay
In deep, far beneath
All the dead sailors slowly slipping to sleep
Oh oh, ah ha ho
La-di-da-da-da, ah ha ha oh-oh

My girl, linen and curls
Lips parting like a flag all unfurled
She's grand, the bend of her hand
Digging deep into the sweep of the sand
Oh oh, ah ha ho
La-di-da-da-da, ah ha ha oh-oh

And summer arrives (ba-ba ba ba)
With a length of lights (ba-ba ba ba)
And summer blows away
And quietly it gets swallowed by a wave
It gets swallowed by a wave
It gets swallowed by a wave
It gets swallowed by a wave
