“S” Sing-Sang-Sung

Iโ€™ve sang songs as I have sat by the sea shore


Iโ€™ve written songs about singing songs

I sang while sitting by the sea shore

I am a song sang while sitting by the sea shore.

I am the sea of which you sang while sitting there singing by the shore

I am the wind of which she sang as she set singing songs by the sea shore

I am the shore that set by the sea since eternity did sing of me

And I sing of the days and the nights when you sat singing songs

About the sea that sang songs about me as I set singing songs
