When the sun beats down and burns the tar upon the roof
And your shoes get so hot, you wish your tired feet were fireproof

(Oh) Under the boardwalk
Down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby
That's where I will be

Under the boardwalk - out of the sun
Under the boardwalk - we'll be having some fun
Under the boardwalk - people walking above
Under the boardwalk - we were falling in love
Under the boardwalk

On the park you'll hear the happy sound of a carousel
You can almost taste the hot dogs and French fries they sell
