8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
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 aboard,
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 arolling 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.
