A celebration of all things summer! Grab it to crank as you throw your boards in the car and head beachward. Life is sticky sweet!


Salt Water Taffy

now is the time to shut the store down
drive a little bit over
and a little bit south
where the shops sell ray bans
and wings to go
and the ladies wear sandals
and banana boat

'cause life is sticky sweet
salt water taffy

crash into town
with our boards and beer
where the outside world
can't touch us here
gonna buy me a necklace
with a shark tooth now
and sip on margaritas
'til the sun goes down

'cause life's salty and sweet
both smooth and sandy
and every girl i see's
salty water taffy

meet under the shark
and then we'll hit the Cork
and catch the late bus home

when it's all said and done
we'll be lying in the sun

back down to Sharky's
where the waves are great
there's shrimp and bloody marys
at the Surf 'n Spray
tell this hectic life
that i'm all done
i'll be lying in the sun

we'll bury our hassles
in sand castles then
just watch them wash away

'cause life's salty and sweet
both hard and happy
and every girl i see's
salt water taffy

drop by for a mai tai
on the balcony
we'll watch the summer sun
setting into a sea
of salt water, yeah
salt water, yeah
salt water taffy
