Liner Notes

I was thinking, "How would I make a surf song?" "I should practice covering other's music more, so I could more easily adapt to existing styles."

Then I was like, "Well, let's start with the sound of the surf."

My surf was relaxing, and I pictured myself at the beach. The rest of the song sort of wrote itself.

Lyrics

Some people go to the beach to have lots of fun.
Others go to the beach to relax.
But me? Me? What do I do there?
I sit. I sit, and quietly read.

I like to read my books. It is nice. I like it.
And you, and you, sit there with me.
And you, and you, you are my book.

I like to read my books they are nice.
I sit here quietly, look a mouse!
He's not reading, at least that I see.
He's probably hungry and looking for feed.

But, I'm alone. Just on this beach.
Reading my book and drinking tea.
So I shall sit here, and watch the mouse work.
While the waves, they do play.

I sit here and read and stare at the sea.
And sometimes it might stare back at me.
Still I sit, quietly. Staring off to the sea.
Then, it's back, time to read.
