Sweet Anabelle
As seen reclining on an ocean swell
As the Waves do lather up
and lay her down
'til she's and sleeping
Oh well
I guess I'm something of a neer-do-well
who fell asleep at the pealing of the steeple bell

I'm on track and keeping but oh
If I could only get you ocean side
stretch your muscles wide
it'd be heavenly
And Oh
