We fell in love down at the pier.
You were sunbathing, I was around.
Soon we were sharing a beer.
We fell in love at the pier.
I'm no sentimental slob so don't think I'm queer .
You got somethin' baby, and it ain't just my beer.
Well, maybe it's the hot pants, maybe the heat, or was it the sneakers you kicked of your feet?
I sat under my umbrella to keep my pearly skin.
You tanned your oily body looking like sin.
Well, soon I was sweatin' and I wanted to leave.
You slipped into the water from to much grease.
Well, I saw you yelling.
I just couldn't hear, so I screamed back at ya "Honey keep the beer!"
We never consummated our outside love affair.
Too much tar and water.
Too much hot air.
Oh, what a tragic end to love that was lost.
We would have stood a chance if we met in the frost, but...
We fell in love down at pier.
You were sunbathing, I was around.
Now I go to beaches with my girlfriend.
No more love splinters in my rear end.
