Have you ever held a fistful of coquinas in the palm of your hand?
Have you resigned yourself to keeping so close to land?
Have you walked the balance beam on the playground by the bay?
Have you learned to shuffle your feet in warning to the sleeping stingrays?

Well, let me tell you
That the girls who live on the island
Are good for kissing
And those town boys just don't know
What they are missing
Down Alamanda Avenue, I wanna take you to the Rod N' Reel

And if you only knew how five days of straight saltwater can make your hair feel
I don't care about the sand in your shoes
Take a walk with me down Alamanda Avenue
Have you spent a summer night skinny dipping in the canal?

Can you tell me what you hear when you listen to the seashells?
Have you learned to navigate your way though the mangrove trees?
Will you come to Ana Maria if I say please?
