about

Another Tenby song about a game we used to play. This track features special-guest musician George Whitfield on piano-accordion.

lyrics

Rockhopping

It's a high tide today
And the storm's a-coming.
I'll call round your house on the way
And hope that you'll come running
Down to the sea,
With no stopping.
Come with me,
We'll go Rock Hopping.

Pick your rock of choice
And stand courageous
Against the wicked waves and the salty noise.
Embrace the danger.
Who will be the first to run
And who will take no stopping?
Who will be the last one
To stay Rock Hopping?

We and the sea are one
In the wild and windy weather.
Soaked to the skin beneath the setting sun
We could stay for ever.
But home through the town
Dripping a river behind.
Frowns on the faces of the ladies shopping.
What's wrong with young people today?
They go Rock Hopping.
