Lyrics

There’s a seaside cottage we’ve gone to for years
Where we’ve had lots of laughter and shed a few tears
As we walk on the dock and remember the past
We know Mystic memories will last

Come along to our place by the sea
It’s fun for you, and it’s fun for me
There’s food and family and history
At our place by the sea

From a walk downtown to a ride on the boat
You can sit in a kayak or tube afloat
A big family meal on the deck in the breeze
Then a s’more by the fire, if you please

Come along to our place by the sea
It’s fun for you, and it’s fun for me
There’s food and family and history
At our place by the sea
