Idyllic, magical, glorious late summer Hermosa Beach day. High surf, translucent late afternoon backlit waves, pod of prancing dolphins gleefully surfing them over and over again. Sun sets, walking home up Pier Avenue, pass Jerry Morris’ bait shop (Father of Keith Morris), think about Black Flag, think about the Circle Jerks, the Descendants, think about
Dick Dale, I think about 1960’s TV star Flipper, who I dearly loved so much as a boy in 1970’s after-school syndication, I thought about Shamu.

Lyrics

Under the Sea
Garrick Rawlings ©2006

Oh, Mr. D
What’s it like down there
On a sunny day
When you come up for air

What do you do
When a storm rolls through
In a hurricane
I worry ‘bout you

Faster, faster than lightning
World of wonder, under the sea

Oh, how’s your bro
In the aquarium
Does he ever write
How he feels so dumb

He’s doin tricks
On a human stage
Does he feel free
Or like a rat in a cage

Faster, faster than lightning
World of wonder, under the sea

Where do you go
When you’re not around
I miss you so
Here on solid ground

Oh, did you swim
With the Yankee Clipper
What do you think
Of good ‘ol Flipper

Faster, faster than lightning
World of wonder, under the sea
