(1970 Studio Version)

Here comes the ocean and the waves
Down by the sea
Here comes the ocean and the waves
Where have they been?

Silver and black lit night, here's to a stealer's night
An empty splendid castle
Glowering alone at night, the princess has had a fight
Madness seeks out a lover

And here come the waves
Down by the shore
Washing the soul of the body
That comes from the depths of the sea

Here comes the ocean and the waves
Down by the sea
Here comes the ocean and the waves
Where have they been?

Don't swim tonight my love, the tide is out my love
Malcolm's curse haunts our family
Odious loud and rich, ruler of filthy seas
Revel in heaven's justice

And here come the waves
And save for a scream
There's much like a song to be heard
In the wind that blows by the sea like the wind

Here come the waves
Here come the waves
Here come the waves
Here come the waves



(1969 Studio Version)

Here comes the ocean and the waves
Down by the sea
Here comes the ocean and the waves
Crashing in

Earth is a hollow head, part of a bigger head
It nearly drives me crazy
In the Himalayas, they have small rubber dolls
Recalling all our actions

And here come the winds
Down by the shore
Washing the eye of the land that has been
Down by the sea

Down by the sea
Down by the sea
Down by the sea

Here come the waves
Down by the shore
Here comes the ocean
And the waves crashing in

Insects are evil thoughts, thought of by selfish men
It nearly drives me crazy
I am a lazy son, I never get things done
Made up mostly of water

And here come the waves
Down by the shore
Washing the eye of the land that has been
Down by the sea

Down by the sea
Down by the sea
Down by the sea

Here come the waves
Here come the waves
Here come the waves
Here come the waves



(Demo Version)

Here comes the ocean and the waves
Down by the sea
Here comes the ocean and the waves
Where have they been?

Lying here on the beach with you, it seems out of reach
It could just drive me crazy
You’re such a lazy son but you’re the only one
I could stay here forever

But here come the waves
Down by the shore
Washing our eyes just once more
Down by the sea

Down by the sea

Here comes the ocean and the waves
Down by the sea
Here comes the ocean and the waves
Where have they been?

Lying down on the beach, it seems so out of reach
Doesn’t it just drive you crazy?
You know that you feel so strong but you know that it won’t be long
Till it’s on, on the water

But here come the waves
Down by the shore
Washing our eyes till it’s gone, just once more
Down by the sea

Here come the waves
Here come the waves
Here come the waves
