"On the Beach" as written by and Randy Newman....
It all began in grammar school
And on the beach
Everybody graduate, there we were
Off we went to junior high, there we were

Everybody graduate
Off we went to high school
Someone of us
On the beach he was, and there he stayed
Saw the holy cat, the beginnings of it
Polyurethane
Long board, short board, Every board
On the beach, he saw it
On the beach

Row Willy, row Willy
He saw it all, Willy
On the beach
Your not a Bum, Willy
Never a bum, Willy
But in he has to come, Willy
T'wards in reach

Some went to college
Some went to war
Some came back crazy
Some where crazy before

Willy saw acid
Willy saw fear
Willy saw free base
But Willy's still here

On the beach,
On the beach,
Still on the beach
Still on the beach

They're building a railroad
Downtown to here
That's what they say
They said it sixty years ago
But they building it today

Lifeguard towers, you used to live in
Coming down, man they coming down

Lifeguard towers, well you'd hold fault for hours
About the Polyurethane, the holy cat, the Long board and short board too,

Willy, if it ever rains again, don't sleep under the pier
Those 20 foot sets we used to lie, well they're here now Willy
And they'll take you out
Roll willy roll, you never get old
You look just like you used to look a hundred years ago

On the beach
On the beach
Nice to see you Willy,
Still on the beach

On the beach
On the beach
Nice to see you Willy,
Still on the beach
