We were strolling along
(Twist and shout!)
On Moonlight Bay
We can hear the voices singing
(I like it, I like it)
And they seem to say

You have broken my heart
(Oh, twist and shout!)
Don't go away
(Are The Beatles gone?)
(No, they're here)
With your short fat hairy legs
On Moonlight Bay
On Moonlight Bay
