Zomerklassieker du jour: Rockaway Beach

Bedoeld als parodie op (en eerbetoon aan) het vroege werk van The Beach Boys. Rockaway Beach bevindt zich op een steenworp afstand van Queens, de wijk waar alle leden van de band woonden. In 2013 werd het volledig verwoest door Hurricane Sandy.

Chewing out a rhythm on my bubble gum
The sun is out and I want some
It’s not hard, not far to reach
We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach
Up on the roof, out on the street
Down in the playground the hot concrete
Bus ride is too slow
They blast out the disco on the radio

[Chorus]
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach

[Bridge]
It’s not hard, not far to reach
We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach
It’s not hard, not far to reach
We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach

Chewing out a rhythm on my bubble gum
The sun is out and I want some
It’s not hard, not far to reach
We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach

Up on the roof, out on the street
Down in the playground the hot concrete
Bus ride is too slow
They blast out the disco on the radio

[Chorus]
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach

[Chorus]
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
Rock rock Rockaway Beach
We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach
