By Berton Braley.
Where the ocean billows roar
On the shore,
Where the folks are on the beacH
Side by each,
Le us seek a seaside cot
(Charming spot)
Where to live the" simple life
Far from strife.
For two hundred bones a week
What we seek
Can be found where breezes cool
- Are the rule.
There, in beauteous bathing
We can pose;
There's the place to plot and plan
For a man.
There will be a fancy ball ;
We shall call
On two hundred folks or so
Whom we know;
Luncheons, soirees, cards and,
Things like these,
Give the simple life a touch
Relished much.
Yes, the Simple Life for us,
Void of fuss,
Full of comfort and content,
Till we've spent
All our money then, ah me 1
We must flee;
We must quit the ocean foam
And go home
