I want to bury you up to your neck in the sand
Exposing only your head and one hand
Then we'll find a friend who will bury me too

So we'll stand in the sand holding hands just me and you
So we'll stand in the sand holding hands, me and you

The crabs will arrive and they'll pick at your face
But I'll whistle so they'll pick at mine in your place
Then the gulls will arrive, eat the crabs for their food
So we'll stand in the sand holding hands just me and you
So we'll stand in the sand holding hands, me and you

If the tide takes me away, if the tide takes you away
If the tide takes us away, we'll meet here
In the sand
Never fear, just look to the sand

If the waves come in, well we'll both surely drown
But to stay here with you makes me hold my ground
Lets just make sure we're buried far enough up the beach
To stand in the sand holding hands you and me
Yeah we'll stand in the sand holding hands you and me

If the tide takes me away, if the tide takes you away
If the tide takes us away, we'll meet here
In the sand
Never fear, just look to the sand
And my sun burnt hand
