8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Joe and Jane were al - ways to - geth - er,
Said Joe to Jane "I love sum - mer wea - ther,
So let's go to that beau - ti - ful sea,
Fol - low a - long,  Say you're with me."
A - ny - thing that Joe would sug - gest to her,
Jane would al - ways think it was best for her,
So he'd get his Ford,  Hol - ler "All a - board,
Gee!  I want to be:"
By the sea,  By the sea,  By The Beau - ti - ful Sea,
You and I,  You and I,  Oh!  How hap - py we'll be.
When each wave comes a - roll - ing in, We will duck or swim, 
And we'll float and fool - a - round the wa - ter.
O - ver and un - der and then up for air.
Pa is rich,  Ma is rich,  So now what do we care?
I love to be be - side your side,  Be - side the sea,
Be - side the sea - side,  By The Beau - ti - ful Sea.
