lyrics

I once took my dog to a beach they call Crane's
I guess cause some rich guy gave it his name
I knew a good beach, is quite hard to find
And an uneasy feeling was brewing inside
Well, oh well, straight to hell
Paradise ruined is something to see

First came the families with matching goose coats
laughing in unison, the same way they vote
they asked if my dog was the kind that would bite
I said Canada Goose tastes the best in her mind
Well, oh well, straight to hell
Paradise ruined is something to see

Then of course came the horses with heirs on their backs
The crabs that they crushed mixed with shit in their tracks
They waved, and they waved, and I stared and I stared
I couldn't find words, and they couldn't quite care
Well, oh well, straight to hell
Paradise ruined is something to see

Then a hoard of strange dogs did descend in thick packs
Their owners unknowers of the wealth they had
They asked bout my dog, I said it's a mutt
They ran away screaming while holding their pups
Well, oh well, straight to hell
Paradise ruined is something to see

Then came the trucks paid for by the trustees
to maintain the beach and it's varying needs
I couldn't quite help it, I thought it'd be nice
to walk on a beach without imprints of tires
Well, oh well, straight to hell
Paradise ruined is something to see

I know what you're thinking, my thinking's too harsh
you'd be pleased to know I ran home in a march
Cause a tourist attraction's a wonderful thing
If the people that flock them were shot in the spring
Well, oh well, straight to hell
Paradise ruined is something to see
