By the Beautiful Sea


By the Beautiful Sea – music by Harry Carroll, song lyrics by Harold R. Atteridge (1914)

Joe and Jane were always together,
Said Joe to Jane “I love summer weather,
So let’s go to that beautiful sea
Follow along Say you’re with me”
Anything that Joe would suggest to her
Jane would always think it was best for her
So he’d get his Ford Holler “All a -board
Gee! I want to be:”

By the sea, by the sea By The Beautiful Sea
You and I, You and I Oh! how happy we’ll be
When each wave comes a’rolling in
We will duck or swim And we’ll float and fool around the water
Over and under and then up for air
Pa is rich, Ma is rich, so now what do we care?
I love to be beside your side, Beside the sea,
Beside the seaside By The Beautiful Sea.

[Editor’s note: performed in For Me and My Gal, the I Love Lucy episode, Mertz and Kurtz]
