Took a walk, down by the ocean
As I stood there, I saw the devotion
Pulling me
I began body surfing for my life
Ecstasy, sky and the sea
Golden sun on my face

Trusting in the deep blue sea
Watching the tide as it drifts away
I spoke to me daddy
You got to go find a job
For your mommy and me
I say, Daddy, me want to go to the seashore
Me no want to work
Me want to body surf all day
Me want to go body surfing
Me tell him
