(There's a hole
in your bucket)

Sun's out!
We got
A beach day
Forget
Yourself say
Why don't
We people watch?
Kids all playing
'Round in the sand

(Little boy crying)

Oh, no!
He's got
Some troubles
Got us laughing
As he throws
His shovel
Nothing's
Really going
As planned

I don't know
How we're
Gonna build
A castle now
Do you want
To start
Again somehow?
I'll stay
Until the sun
Comes down
Down, down

Are you smiling?
Look over
My shoulder
See
Your laughter
Bubble over
Lately
You've
Been working
Too hard

And i've
Been waiting
To recognize
That sparkle
That's
In your eyes
Those
Two dimples
On your cheeks
The joy
That lights
The fire

I don't know
How we're
Gonna build
A castle now
Do you want
To start
Again somehow?
I'll stay
Until the sun
Comes down
Down, down

There's a hole
In my bucket
Dear Liza
Dear Liza
There's a hole
In my bucket
Dear Liza
A hole

And i don't know
How
We're s'posed
To build
A castle now
Do you want
To start
Again somehow?
I'll stay
Until the sun
Comes down
Down

I'll stay
Until the sun
Comes

I don't know
How we're
Gonna build
A castle now
Do you want
To start
Again somehow?
I'll stay
Until the sun
Comes down
Down, down
'Til the sun
Comes down

I'll stay
Sun's coming down
I'll stay
Sun's coming down
I'll stay
Sun's coming down
I'll stay

    Shes talking about how she was at the beach with a girl named liza and they plan to make a castle, but there happens to be a hole in the bucket they were going to use to make it. Then she says that she'll stay and try to find a solution until the sun comes down.
