about

Some folks here in North Carolina were making a movie set in Myrtle Beach around the beginnings of "Beach Music". The movie makers asked me to write some original tunes for their film, and this is one tune that I came up with. Super sweet and super light. If you're unfamiliar, Beach Music sparked in the '50s and '60s as a cultural phenomenon built around white kids dancing to black R&B on the Carolina coast.

lyrics

Well, it was late in the day -
I was walkin' down the beach alone,
just a wishin' and hopin'
that i could find a love of my own.
Such a beautiful girl, so i stopped
and i asked her name -
I can honestly say since that day
that my life's not the same.
Now we walk in the sand -
she takes my hand (and says)

Oo la la la la, babe, l love you (and i said)
Oo la la la la, babe, i do
Oo la la la la, babe, l love you
Oo la la la la, babe, i do

And there's no doubt about it,
I need her for life -
there under the boardwalk,
I asked her to be my wife (and i said)

Oo la la la la, babe, l love you
Oo la la la la, babe, i do
Oo la la la la, babe, l love you
Oo la la la la, babe, i do

Oo la la la la la, love
