Would you like to visit the seaside? Where the sun kisses the sea The melody of the waves harmonize With wild calls on the shore Would you like to see the seaside? Where sunsets look like paintings Filled to the brim with crimson and tangerine The vivid life underwater waiting to be discovered Would you like to visit the seaside? We can take the sleeper train Lazily flying down the beaten tracks Rolling low and slow Enjoying every moment with you Would you like to hear the seaside? Coastal gulls breathing the sea breeze Calling to each other The steps on the pure, white sand Would you like to visit the seaside? With the wondrous forest not too far Complementing the sea with wise, emerald giants Diffusing the air with delicate floral blooms Would you like to feel the seaside? The refreshing chill of the invigorating azure ocean Soaking in the sweet sun Or maybe resting in the shade, underneath the forest canopy I would love to visit the seaside When the raging snow melts The chilling winds calm And winter takes its curtain call When the gloomy clouds scurry away And the tune of summer begins to play I would love to visit the seaside And bask in its beauty with you
