Let's go down to the beach today
Let's go down to the water and play
There'll be sand castles made of clay
Then we'll watch it wash away

Let's go hang with the kids today
I forget everything
I will be your friend today
I will be your friend today
I don't care what you say

Let's go down to the beach today
Everything is different today
I won't get mad at anything
I forgive everything

Let's go down to the water today
It won't cost me anything
I will be your friend today
I don't care if you hate me
I don't care what you say

Let's go down to the beach today
And I will play all your games
Let's hang out with the kids today
Let's hang out with the kids okay
We'll make sand castles made of clay
Then we'll watch it wash away
I will be your friend today
I will be your friend today
I don't care what you say

    General Commentyou forgot the best part!

    "dear Corin, we're the only cats in the whole school
    who can keep an open mind about music,
    and accept a little wild loudness.
    keep listening to those crazy new wave bands
    and keep an eye out for Sheena cause she's a punk rocker.
    keep the faith and new bands will appear.

    it is also interesting listening to all your stories
    of car wrecks and concerts.
    I hope you get out of all the trouble you got in
    with the cops (sooner than you think? I know the feeling?)

    we've got to start a band this summer,
    but we've got to find a better name than "Sleater-Kinney"
    it was good not knowing you
    I hope you have a good summer
    stay cool, love Carrie"

    I listen to this song on repeat all the time.
