These words begin the song, “Cabin By The Sea,”
“Well come with me to a place by the sea,
If your ship breaks down, you can always find me,
And Dirty J chillin’ underneath the shady tree ,
Our fans are always welcome with our friends and family.
And if you wish you can stay, as long as you please
Just lend a helping hand up at our cabin by the sea
Where everyday is beautiful, the sun, the sand, the breeze
And everybody lives together here in harmony
And we’ll sing
Just as loud as we please,
And we will be,
Forever so free,
So come follow me, cabin by the sea…”
