The beach is a place where a man can feel
He's the only soul in the world that's real
But I see a face coming through the haze
I remember him from those crazy days
Crazy days, crazy days

Ain't you the guy who used to set the paces
Riding up in front of a hundred faces?
I don't suppose, you would remember me
But I used to follow you back in '63

I've got a good job and I'm newly born
You should see me, dressed up in my uniform
I work in a hotel, all gilt and flash
Remember the [Incomprehensible], where the doors we smashed?

Bell Boy! I've gotta get runnin' now
Bell Boy! Keep my lip buttoned down
Bell Boy! Carry this baggage out
Bell Boy! Always running at someone's [Incomprehensible] heel
You know how I feel
Always runnin' at someone's heel

Some nights I still sleep on the beach
Remember when stars were in reach
Then I wander in early to work
Spend my day lickin' boots for my perks

The beach is a place where a man can feel
He's the only soul in the world that's real
But I see a face, comin' through the haze
I remember him from those crazy days
Crazy days, crazy days, crazy days, crazy days

Ain't you the guy who used to set the paces
Riding up in front of a hundred faces?
I don't suppose you would remember me
But I used to follow you back in '63

People often change but when I look in your eyes
You could learn a lot, from a life like mine
The secret to me, it ain't flown like a flag
I carry it behind this pretty little badge, what says?

Bell Boy! I gotta get runnin' now
Bell Boy! Keep the lip buttoned down
Bell Boy! Carry the bloody baggage out
Bell Boy! Always runnin' at someone's heel
You know how I feel
Always runnin' at someone's heel
