"Down by the Bay" is an old children's song popularized by Raffi in the '80's. Remember?
Down by the bay
Where the watermelons grow
Back to my home I dare not go
For if I do
My mother will say:
"Did you ever see a......(fill in the blank with a rhyme...) down by the bay."
We just returned from Netarts bay, Oregon, and here are a few new verses for that old song.
Did you ever see a bird who had the last word?
Did you ever see a cliff with a rift like this?
Did you ever see a light flash all night?
Did you ever see a path all full of wrath?
Did you ever see egrets without any regrets?
Did you ever leave the sand with an empty hand...
...down by the bay.
