Down by the seaside. See the boats go sailin'
Can the people hear, What the little fish are sayin'

Oh, oh, the people turned away. Oh, the people turned away

Down in the city streets, see all the folk go racin', racin'
No time left, to pass the time of day

The people turned away. The people turned away
So far away, so far away

See how they run, see how they run, see how they run, see how they run.

Do you still do the twist [Down By The Seaside lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com]
Do you find you remember things that well
I wanna tell you... Some go twistin' every day
Though sometimes it's awful hard to tell

Out in the country, hear the people singin'
Singin' 'bout their progress, knowin' where they're goin'

Oh, oh, oh, oh, the people turned away
Yes, the people turned away

Sing loud for the sunshine, pray hard for the rain
And show your love for Lady Nature. And she will come back again The people turned away
The people turned away

    It's a song which you would never have thought was a song sung by the amazing heavy rock band, Led Zeppelin, and I love it.
    Thanks to drugs, this song, and many other "different" songs were created, and loved for times to come.
