Lyrics by Judy Henske, Music by Craig Doerge

There are windows on the water
Lighting up the silver strand
Shining on the sea

Shining on the sea
And the ocean's just a player
On an old piano
Who repeats one melody
Who repeats one melody

Chorus
Hustlin' nickels and dimes
I belong on the shore
Before it's gone
'Cause it ain't long
You might as well have a good time

Well the elbows of his jacket
Are blue and shiny
Drunk and gone to seed
He's drunk and gone to seed

And he mumbles as he plays
The only song he knows
It's the only song he knows
It's the only song he needs

Chorus
Hustlin' nickels and dimes
I belong on the shore
Before it's gone
'Cause it ain't long
You might as well have a good time
All his restless music

Don't mean a damn thing to me
The shallow or the deep

Said, the shallow or the deep
We'll go out together
And party 'til we sleep
So if you're free this evening
Party 'til we sleep
Chorus

I belong on the shore
Hustlin' nickels and dimes
Before it's gone
'Cause it ain't long
You might as well have a good time
