Oh, the boardwalk's deserted
There's nobody down by the shore
And the ferris wheel ride
Isn't turning around any more

The heat wave and the crowds
Are just old news
But I've still got some
Sand in my shoes

(Sand in my shoes)
Brings memories of the salty air
(Sand in my shoes)
The blanket that we used to share

How we fell in love
Down by the sea
Comes back to me
With the sand in my shoes

Oh, when the water was cold
You would tremble
And hold me so tight
And we'd sit on the beach
Just to wait for the stars
To come out at night

The heat wave and the crowds
Are just old news
But I've still got some
Sand in my shoes

(Sand in my shoes) oh
Brings memories of the salty air
(Sand in my shoes) oh, oh
The blanket that we used to share

How we fell in love
Down by the sea
Comes back to me
With the sand in my shoes

(Sand in my shoes) oh, oh
(Sand in my shoes) la la la...
