Chewing out a rhythm on my bubble gum

The sun is out and I want some.

We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach.

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

   Rock Rock Rockaway Beach

   Rock Rock Rockaway Beach

   We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach  (2x)
