The Lyrics

She'll sell seashells to you
When it's low tide.
That's when the seashore's in full view--
Surf ain't risin',
It ain't yet risin'.

She sells me a clam; it
Is a mottled brown.
It's been in the sand; it
Strongly clamps, onto my right hand, down.

I yell, with fingers blue--
It can't be pried
Off, pried!

It hurts, oo!
It hurts, oo!
It hurts, oo!
It hurts, oo! Clamping down
On digits bare.
It is killing me!
She's nowhere found.

Where is she?
To help the shell remove
Here comes high tide.

[fade on sound of person foundering in the surf and screaming in pain]
