Carolina Beach, Carolina Beach
Sure did ruin my life
Lost my home, lost my car
Lost my sweet, sweet wife

Said I was goin’ fishin’
Well, that’s what I said
But I didn’t go fishin’
Went to the beach instead

Never seen so many pretty girls
Lyin’ there in the sand
Fought temptation for a while
And then I took off my wedding band


Walked in to the penny arcade
Met a little girl named Polly
Looked at the bracelet on her leg
And I said “Hey, this girl must be from Raleigh”

Polly said come on sweetheart
Let’s go and have a beer
I said lover I’m with you,
I sure could use some cheer


Polly said let’s play the jukebox
Then you can dance with me
Man, we was really tearin’ it up
Listenin’ to a song by Jerry Lee

Looked over in to the doorway
What do you think I saw?
My two kids, my sweet, sweet wife
And my dear old mother-in-law
