This month's song is an upbeat, joyful tribute to beaches everywhere. It tells the story of fantastical beachy happenings like a wave you can ride all the way to the Arctic Ocean, dolphins that jump over the moon, a sand castle that "grew so tall, way up into the clouds, and all around the world a hundred million times", and a "magical, groovy night" spent playing, singing and dancing with friends on the beach.

Beach
once I went to the beach
and I dug a really really deep hole
tunneled all the way under the sea
to the other side

once I went to the beach
and I brought a ball to kick around
and I kicked it so far
it traveled to the stars and stayed

once I went to the beach
and I built a castle in the sand
and it grew so tall
way up into the clouds
and all around the world
a hundred million times
until it came back to me

I love the beach (na na na na na na)
I love the beach (na na na na na na)
what's not to love about the beach?
I love everything about the beach

once I went to the beach
and I ran a race in the sand
oh I ran so far
I made it all the way to Mexico

once I went to the beach
and the big waves were crashin' down
so I rode the biggest one all the way
to the arctic ocean

once I went to the beach
and somethin' shiny washed ashore
it was an old glass bottle
I popped off the cork
shook it upside down
and out came a message
a magical treasure map!

I love the beach (na na na na na na)
I love the beach (na na na na na na)
what's not to love about the beach?
I love everything about the beach

once I went to the beach
and all my friends were there
and we played all day
'til the sun was sinkin' low
(where does it go?)

and as the sun went down
we saw dolphins playin' in the surf
they jumped so high they made it over the moon
just like that cow
(wow...la la la...woo woo woo)

it was a magical groovy night
and we sang every song we knew
and we did a little dance in the sand
and it goes like this

you go side to side
front to back
turn yourself around
and give a little clap clap
rock your roll
swing your sway
hula your hoop
and ride a really really big wave
sashay to the right
sashay to the left
sidle right on up to the front
and walk it right on back
jump into a star
and shine like a bright sunray
make a little stomp stomp
and shout a little hip hip hooray! 'cause

we love the beach (na na na na na na)
we love the beach (na na na na na na)
we love the beach (na na na na na na)
we love the beach (na na na na na na)
we love the beach (na na na na na na)
we love the beach (na na na na na na)
what's not to love about the beach?
we love everything about the beach
