Have you ever seen a sunrise
on a flat calm reach?
Have you ever seen the magic
of a humpback breach?
Have you pondered the mystery
of a jellyfish school?
Have you waded through the water
in a spannytickle pool?
Have you ever seen a morning
with twenty shades of grey?
Have you peeped at an eagle's nest
from twenty feet away?
Have you sung with your friends
around a big old driftwood fire?
Have you floated down across the cove
on a tube from a tire?

All these things are out there,
you don't have to pay;
Just open your eyes
and you'll be surprised
What you see out the bay.

Have you ever seen an iceberg
carved by the unseen hand?
Have you ever seen a northeast gale
when it first strikes the land?
Have you taken a boat ride on a moonlit bay,
Have you followed its rippling ribbon
that made it look like day?
Have you followed the shoreline,
hoppin' from rock to rock,
Smellin' sea and feeling free
never knowing where to stop?
Have you ever copied ice pans
on an April day,
Or have you gone beyond those things
and forgotten how to play.

All these things are out there,
you don't have to pay;
Just open your eyes
and you'll be surprised
What you see out the bay.

All these things are out there,
you don't have to pay;
Just open your eyes
and you'll be surprised
What you see out the bay.
