Lyrics OH, THE BOARDWALK IS DESERTED,
THERE'S NOBODY
DOWN BY THE SHORE
AND THE FERRIS WHEEL RIDE
ISNT TURNING AROUND
ANY MORE.
THE HEAT WAVE
AND THE CROWDS
ARE JUST OLD NEWS,
BUT I'VE STILL GOT
SOME SAND IN MY SHOES.

SAND IN MY SHOES,
BRINGS MEMORIES
OF THE SALTY AIR
SAND IN MY SHOES,
THE BLANKET
THAT WE USED TO SHARE.
HOW WE FELL IN LOVE
DOWN BY THE SEA,
COMES BACK TO ME
WITH THE SAND IN MY SHOES.

WHEN THE WATER WAS COLD,
YOU WOULD TREMBLE
AND HOLD ME SO TIGHT,
AND WE WOULD SIT
ON THE BEACH,
JUST TO WAIT
FOR THE STARS
TO COME OUT
AT NIGHT.
THE HEAT WAVE
AND THE CROWDS
ARE JUST OLD NEWS,
BUT I'VE STILL GOT
SOME SAND IN MY SHOES.

SAND IN MY SHOES,
BRINGS MEMORIES
OF THE SALTY AIR
SAND IN MY SHOES,
THE BLANKET
THAT WE USED TO SHARE.
HOW WE FELL IN LOVE
DOWN BY THE SEA,
COMES BACK TO ME
WITH THE SAND IN MY SHOES.

Lyrics OH, WHEN THE SUN
BEATS DOWN
AND BURNS THE TAR
UP ON THE ROOF,
AND YOUR SHOES
GET SO HOT
YOU WISH
YOUR TIRED FEET
WERE FIREPROOF.

UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
DOWN BY THE SEA,
ON A BLANKET
WITH MY BABY'S
WHERE I'LL BE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
OUT OF THE SUN,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL HAVE SOME FUN.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
PEOPLE WALKIN' ABOVE,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL BE
FALLIN' IN LOVE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
BOARDWALK.

FROM THE PARK
YOU HEAR
THE HAPPY SOUND
OF A CAROUSEL,
YOU CAN ALMOST TASTE
THE HOTDOGS
AND FRENCH FRIES
THEY SELL.

UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
DOWN BY THE SEA,
ON A BLANKET
WITH MY BABY'S
WHERE I'LL BE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
OUT OF THE SUN,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL HAVE SOME FUN.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
PEOPLE WALKIN' ABOVE,
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
WE'LL BE
FALLIN' IN LOVE.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK,
BOARDWALK.
