Let’s go down to the water
Bring your towel and suntan lotion
Can’t wait to feel the sand
And the waves out in the ocean.

The sun is beating down
A perfect day for fun
Sunbathing and walking
Underneath the warm, bright sun.

Open up a homemade sandwich
Grab yourself a bag of chips
A bottle of tea and a pickle
Taste the salt upon your lips.

There’s nothing like the salty air
And the cool, sweet, salty breeze
Makes you want to spend forever there
Makes you never want to leave.

The seagulls, the sand crabs
The turtles, and the dolphins
The creatures of nature
You don’t see so very often.

The pull and tugs of deadlines
Cast them all away
Enjoy the simple pleasures
Of this perfect summer day.
