Magic Beach Hut

The magic beach hut along the bay
Transports you to a hot summer’s day

Seeking shelter from a snowstorm
Some place dry to keep you warm

Close your eyes to wish for the sun
Count to three and you shall have fun

Build sandcastles and dig for treasure
Ball games of plenty at your leisure

Sunshine all day will fill you with glee
Surf the waves in the clear blue sea

Tallest Ferris wheel at the funfair
Tasty sweet treats for all to share

Lather up with coconut sun cream
Lashings of delicious ice-cream

Escape winter blues at the seashore
Enjoy summer holidays once more
