Down By The Sea

by Harry Nilsson

Down by the sea

That's where I wanted to be

With nothing to do

Down by the sea

Don't tell me that isn't what you wanted to do

We sold the house, the car, the TV, the dog, the dope

And we were on our way

Down by the sea

Don't tell me that isn't what you wanted to do

We had the children remember

John, Phillip, Susan, Alice, Carol, Teddy, Bobby, Jenny

I think we had one too many

But I hope I'm not out of line

'Cause its forty years after the laughs

At the Wedding

And I'm dreading retirement

Because what will I do

The children are married

And now the big question is

Was it all worth it?

And who'll bury who?

You bury me or I'll bury you

So down by the seaside

From now until we have parted

Each day brings us back where we started

And closer to seeing each other much closer

And closer to seeing the dream coming true

Don't tell me that isn't what you wanted to do

I'd love to share with you regarding Harry Nilsson, his life and his music.
