"Show It At The Beach" as written by and Shel Silverstein....
Oh, they won't let us show it at the beach.
No, they won't let us show it at the beach.
They think we're gonna grab it if it gets within our reach.
And they won't let us show it at the beach.

But you... can show it in your parlor to most anyone you choose.
You can show it at a party with your second shot of booze.
You can show it on the corner wearin' overcoat and shoes,
But they won't let us show it at the beach.

No... they won't let us show it at the beach, friends.
Ah... they won't us show it at the beach.
Oh, they're sure we're gonna grab it if it gets within our reach.
So they won't let us show it at the beach.

But you can show it at the movies on the cineramic screen.
You can show it in the most sophisticated magazine.
You can show it while you're bouncing on the high school trampoline,
But they won't let us show it at the beach.

But if you've got a gun, it's legal to display it on your hip.
You can show your butcher knives to any interested kid.
But if it's made for lovin', then you'd better keep it hid.
And they won't let us show it at the beach.
