Down at the shore there's a place
Where there's no one vacationing
There's just the sound of the call of the wild
Overcoming the fear of the unknown

And I've got something to help you understand
Something waiting there beneath the sand
My metal detector is with me all of the time
I'm the inspector over the mine

Look past the volleyball
(Look past the ball)
Look past the squawking gull
(Look past the gull)
Ignore the mountain of discarded falderal

'Cause I've got something to make you understand
Something hidden there underneath the land
My metal detector is with me all of the time
I'm the inspector over the mine
Metal detector, watch it shine

Every seashell has a story to tell if you're listening
But underneath every shell there's a story
As well if you've heard, enough of the sea
Then everything on the top will just
Suddenly stop seeming interesting
So listen now to the sound
Of the things that are found underground

Don't need no volleyball
(Don't need no volleyball)
Don't need no squawking gull
(Don't need no squawking gull)
Don't need to look at any bathing beauty doll
(Don't need to look at any doll)

For I've got something to help you understand
Something waiting there beneath the sand
My metal detector is with me all of the time
I'm the inspector over the mine

Look past the volleyball
(Look past the ball)
Look past the squawking gull
(Look past the gull)
Ignore the mountain of discarded falderal

'Cause I've got something to make you understand
Something hidden there underneath the land
My metal detector is with me all of the time
I'm the inspector over the mine
Metal detector, watch it shine

Don't need no volleyball
(Don't need no volleyball)
Don't need no squawking gull
(Don't need no squawking gull)
Metal detector, all the time
(Metal detector all the time)
