A Chapter by Dave Brown



While walkin long the beach

On this early day of Fall

I thought I saw seashell’s dancing

And I’d had no alcohol


They Hustled up and down the shore

With even Loco-Motion neath my feet

And in no time at all

They were doin a Hully-Gully beat


Clams and oysters doing The Frug

While hermit crabs Jived in shells

Then they did The Swim just off the beach

And Honkey-Tonked through Strollin swells


Barnacles did the Jitterbug

Seaweed Frugged in salt sea mist

Long-legged octopus in Dancing Shoes

Did the Bee-Bop and the Twist


The tide Rock and Rolled to shore

While cool cod did The Swim

The misses Calypso’d us some water wings   

And we both Bumped right on in


We swam the Mashed Potato

And Hitchhiked dolphin on our way

Then joined minnows in The Freddie

Till we Bus Stopped at the YMCA
