Sea and Sand Lyrics - The Who
Review The Song (3)
Here by the sea and sand
Nothing ever goes as planned,
I just couldn't face going home
It was just a drag on my own.
They finally threw me out
My mom got drunk on stout,
My dad couldn't stand on two feet,
As he lectured about morality.
Now I guess the family's complete,
With me hanging round on the street
Or here on the beach.
The girl I love
Is a perfect dresser,
Wears every fashion
Gets it to the tee.
I got to match her
She knows just how
She wants her man to be
Leave it to me.
My jacket's gonna be cut slim and checked
Maybe a touch of seersucker with an open neck
I ride a G.S. scooter with my hair cut neat
I wear my wartime coat in the wind and sleet.
I see her dance
Across the ballroom
UV light making starshine
Of her smile.
I am the face,
She has to know me,
I'm dressed up better than anyone
Within a mile.
So how come the other tickets look much better?
Without a penny to spend they dress to the letter.
How come the girls come on oh so cool
Yet when you meet 'em, every one's a fool?
Come sleep on the beach
Keep within my reach
I just want to die with you near
I'm feeling so high with you here.
I'm wet and I'm cold
But thank God I ain't old
Why didn't I ever say what I mean?
I should have split home at fifteen.
There's a story that the grass is so green,
What did I see?
Where have I been?
Nothing is planned, by the sea and the sand

Is it me for a moment? | Reviewer: Gary Bravender | 12/5/12
I can't express how much I related to the story of Jimmy.Even as I approach half of a century of life it still speaks volumes to me.This one of my alltime favorites along with I'm One.I guess everyone has that "ONE" album that they never tire of hearing.Quadrophenia is that album for me. Thank you pete foe being such a Mad Genius
"Who" could possibly dissagree .... LONG LIVE ROCK! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/25/12
Quad was such an influential album. I am in Norfolk, VA, in a hotel on the beach. IT is a grey cold day as I look out onto the Chesapeake bay, and farther to the ocean, this song comes to mind. Had to find it to hear.
I'm wet and I'm cold, and damnit, now, I am old.
Thanks to Jim W. for turning me onto this so many years ago...
