The Lyrics

A day at the beach. Don't forget the "bare" essentials!
It’s such a beautiful day - to get nice and brown
I put my radio on, sun is thrivin'
The sea’s just fine – I’m thinkin’ I'll go swimmin’
Put my stuff away, do some divin’

Sunnin’ by the sea,
Whatever will be will be,
Checkin’ out the summer scene,
Lookin’ at the birds and bees,
Sunnin’ by the sea.

I feel quite sore – like ev’rything’s untouchable
I get rouged-on-soles, rub my thighs.
The next few days, the pain’ll be insuff’rable
I was always told, “No sunshine

Without rubbin’ on sunscreen.”
Had never occurred to me
The agony and misery
Of goin’ down to the sea
And sunnin' with no ‘screen.

(ow ooh, ow ooh….. ow ooh!)

My eyes well up – it stings and smarts,
I’m kinda reddened now, skin's on fire.
This just ain’t cool – I’m needin’ some aftersun -
I’m burnin’ up! Wherever is mine?!?

Now I’m rubbin’ down with cream,
Tryin’ not to squirm and scream,
Burnin’ and a-blisterin’
Got a really desperate need
Of rubbin’ down with cream.

Went sunnin’ with no ‘screen,
Knew I shoulda brought some cream!
All that sun, sand, surf and sea,
Now I think I’m going to scream.
Rubbin’ down with cream….

(ow ooh, ow ooh….. ow ooh!
ow ooh, ow ooh….. ow ooh!
The Murky Depths Stop by and have a li'l look!

Thanks McKludge, John and Alvin! er.... I'm a bit of a n00b, so could you let me know what SPF means, please? Thanks again! :)

SPF is not a site-specific term. SPF = Sun Protection Factor, so we were gifting you with some serious sunscreen. SPF 555 would probably be the equivalent of a parka.

LOL. **feels stupid and goes even redder still** I guess double thanks are in order, then! ;) Cheers!
