WE BUILT OUR HOUSES AT THE END OF A RUNWAY

WE DON’T KNOW WHY THEY CAN’T SEE THINGS OUR WAY

THAT’S NO SURPRISE

IT’S HOW THINGS ARE AT THE BEACH     

WE’RE A LITTLE BIT OUT THERE

AND SOMETIMES HARD TO REACH

 

THE MAYOR SAID HEY NOW WE NEED A DOWNTOWN                                                                        

SO WE PUT IT WHERE TRAFFIC’S ALREADY SLOWED DOWN

THAT’S NO SURPRISE

IT’S HOW THINGS ARE AT THE BEACH YEAH

WE’RE A LITTLE BIT OUT THERE

AND SOMETIMES OUT OF REACH

 

WELL I KNOW SOMETIMES YOU THINK WE STAYED HERE TOO LONG

BETWEEN THE A.R.E. AND C.B.N. WELL HOW THE HELL CAN WE GO WRONG

 

WELL THEY BUILT HOTELS ALL UP AND DOWN THE SAND

THE BOARDWALK’S GOT PLACES SUN WON’T EVER LAND

WELL THAT’S NO SURPRISE

IT’S HOW THINGS ARE AT THE BEACH YEAH

WE’RE A LITTLE BIT OUT THERE    

AND SOMETIMES HARD TO REACH

           

WE WANTED A PARK AT 31ST AND LASKIN

WE GOT A HOTEL AND GARAGE FOR THE ASKIN

THAT’S NO SURPRISE

IT’S HOW THINGS ARE AT THE BEACH YEAH

WE’RE A LITTLE BIT OUT THERE

AND SOMETIMES IMPOSSIBLE TO REACH
