Down by the sea
I found your hidden treasure
Just you and me,
We overdosed on pleasure 

 Yonnies in the wind,
We're ruggin' up for winter  Putting out the bins
In cold and windy weather

Down by the docks 
Live all the silent sea-ships
 Crates are stored on blocks  Where now only the rats live

Sail me down the river 
Till we reach the shore  Diving into the center  Eating out the core

Down on the beach  Saluting Captain Benbow  Always out of reach 
It's quiet when the tide's low

 Climbing up the cliffs 
You can see for miles far
The boat that ran adrift 
Is sitting on the sandbar 

 Laughing at the waves 
That storm the river mouth
The ice is on the move now
 Creeping north and south 

Down by the sea
I found your hidden treasure
Just you and me
We over-dosed on pleasure 

 Listen to your heart 
Screamin' at the sky
Can't you feel it tremble?
Don't you wonder why?
