the beach throbbed with life
charlene spread suntan lotion on herself
danny leaned on the rail thinking he'd like to spread the suntan lotion on charlene's toes
eddie leaned on the counter of the fish and chip shack wishing he was selling more fish and chips

frank sat in his chevy looking out at the waves
gog looked down and said hey that's not half bad
half bad said magog i think it's pretty pathetic
i could do better if you just gave me a chance

jesse james couldn't save this bunch
king johnson drove up in his el dorado
love spread its light over the landscape
mighty fine

never forget this moment, jennifer
an octopus suddenly appeared in the water
pennies of panic fell from heaven
quit while you're ahead = humans

rita adjusted the strap on her bikini top
suddenly a gang of manichean christ deniers appeared on the horizon
terror totally erupted when an albigensian mob landed in rubber rafts up in the sky lightning flashed

vice and virtue were horribly entangled
when you lose your daddy
expect the police to come knocking at your door
you'll never know what hit you

zeros are beyond counting
all your sins are washed away
the beach was deserted
charlene put her suntan lotion and her towel and her radio in her bag
