LET’S GO TO THE BEACH, OK? OK! OK? OK!

May 8, 2008 | Filed Under art, fantastic weekend, get outta here, music, poetry 

we’re going to the beach for the weekend - leaving landlocked atlanta tonight directly after work. i’m overflowing with excitement.

so - I’ll take this opportunity to share with you a song i wrote a long while ago.  it’s about going to the beach.  i like to think of it as a prophecy of big fun.  

Beach Spirals 

A HAPPY FUTURE MEMORY OF THE BEACH

the beach is whiter than anything
and wide enough to walk upon
and where it’s wet
the sky reflects
and we’ll draw giant spirals with our feet

the water is warmer than anything
and green enough to hypnotize
we’ll sing songs
all day long
and wallow in the glory of good times

let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!

ok! ok! ok! ok!

and if you see a shark
or a jellyfish
it’s OK
don’t get too scared
we’ll just take a break from swimmin’

the day at the beach is the best
but the night can be even better
we’ll all go up to our friends’ beach house
get drunk
and get it on with our girlfriends

let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!

ok! ok! ok! ok!
