"by the beautiful sea!"

Joe and Jane were always together.

Said Joe to Jane,

"I love summer weather,

So let's go to that beautiful sea,

Follow along,

Say you're with me!"

 

Anything that Joe would suggest to her

Jane would always think it was best for her.

 

So he'd get his Ford,

Holler:

"ALL ABOARD!

Gosh, I want to be:

 

By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea!

You and me, you and me, oh how happy we'll be!

When each wave comes a-rolling in

We will duck or swim,

And we'll float and fool around the water.

Over and under, and then up for air,

Pa is rich, Ma is rich, so now what do we care?

I love to be beside your side, beside the sea,

Beside the seaside, by the beautiful sea!

  

BY THE BEAUTIFUL SEA

From the musical "For Me and My Gal"

(Harold Atteridge / Harry Carroll) (1914)

 

The rocky Maine coast at low tide.
