SAND CASTLES
Words and music (c) 2008 Hugh Hamilton

WHEN I WAS A BOY I USED TO PLAY THERE
AND THE SUMMER SUN WOULD GIVE ME BLONDE HAIR
WHEN I WAS A BOY I USED TO SUMMER ON THE
BEACH

I WENT TO THE BEACH THE OTHER DAY
THOUGHT I'D HAVE MYSELF A LITTLE HOLIDAY
ALL I COULD SEE FOR MILES AND MILES AND MILES WERE
SYRINGES ON THE
BEACH

THE AUTHORITIES SAID, "WE MUST EVACUATE,
COME ON EVERYBODY, 'FORE IT GETS TOO LATE,
WE HAVE NO TIME TO PACK OUR THINGS
JUST HIT THE ROAD AND LEAVE THIS
TOWN!"

THE HURRICANE'S COMING, THE HURRICANE'S COMING, OOOOH...
THE HURRICANE'S COMING, THE HURRICANE'S COMING, OOOOH...
AHHH...

I WENT TO THE BEACH THE OTHER DAY
THOUGHT I'D HAVE MYSELF A LITTLE HOLIDAY
ALL I COULD SEE FOR MILES AND MILES AND MILES WERE THE
SAND CASTLES, THE
SAND CASTLES,
MANSIONS BUILT UPON THE EVER-SHIFTING SAND,
SAND CASTLES,
SAND CASTLES,
MANSIONS BUILT UPON THE EVER-SHIFTING SAND...

(SIREN) THE GRASS IS GONE
THE DUNES ARE GONE
THE BIRDS ARE GONE
THE FISH ARE DEAD
SYRINGES ON THE BEACH

I'M THE HURRICANE (I'M GONNA BLOW YOU),
I'M THE HURRICANE (I'M GONNA BLOW YOU),
I'M THE HURRICANE...I'M GONNA BLOW YOUR HOUSE
DOWN...

LITTLE PIG, LITTLE PIG, LET ME COME IN, I'LL HUFF AND I'LL PUFF AND I'LL BLOW YOUR HOUSE IN...

SAND CASTLES,
THE HURRICANE'S COMING,
SAND CASTLES,
MANSIONS BUILT UPON THE EVER-SHIFTING SAND
(SIREN)

HUGH'S NEWS
HURRICANES are regular events, and they WILL devastate entire cities, counties, states and regions. It ain't a matter of IF, it's a matter of WHEN. We don't need a news story for this, just ask the folks in New Orleans and Galveston.


HUGH'S NEWS
From CNN: "Birds abandon Ike's devastation, leaving silence..." Here's a link to cut and paste: http://www.cnn.com/2008/TECH/science/10/03/ike.no.birds.ap/index.html
