There (The Fables)

I was sitting all alone, nothin' on my mind,
Everything was just fine;
Waves rollin' in - keepin' perfect time,
Do do do ah doodle e ah e a o.

A boy of six or seven came walkin' up to me,
"A fine day sir" - I agreed;
Said he had a question for me about the sea,
Do do do ah doodle e ah e a o.

There - then disappear,
It's hard to define, my son, but here comes another one;
There - that one is gone,
That's just the way it goes, there's reasons, I suppose.

Said he'd asked another, a bigger, older kid,
Who kicked a can in the water, skipped out the lid;
Said he didn't know, didn't care if he ever did,
Do do do ah doodle e ah e a o.

There - then disappear,
It's hard to define, my son, but here comes another one;
There - that one is gone,
That's just the way it goes, there's reasons, I suppose.

Sometimes it's blue - sometimes green,
Is it time that makes the rocks get all so smooth and clean?
And that wave about to hit the shore,
Is that another wave, or just the one before?

There - then disappear,
It's hard to define, my son, but here comes another one;
There - that one is gone,
That's just the way it goes, there's reasons, I suppose.
