A day on the beach

bucket and spade

On the beach I found a leech
In the sand and I put it in my hand.
Then I went to pick a lovely peach
I went to tell my friend, and I said,
"Shall we have a peach each?"
I could only just about reach.

Then I looked at the lovely sea and
The waves were coming to the shore,
There came a lot more,
They kept on coming to the shore.

I went to find my bucket and spade
And I went to dig in the shade,
And I looked at the hole that I had made,
Then I went to the water to have a wade.

Then we sat down in the sun
And ate our buns and it was so much fun.
Then we ate our peaches with cream
And our day on the beach was like a wonderful dream.
