The singing in the rigging
The slap slap slap
The happy children running
As they clap clap clap
The seagulls in the heavens
As they swoop swoop swoop
And the sailing boats afloat
As they loop loop loop
It’s a pleasant Sunday afternoon
At Manly by the bay..
It’s a glass of wine.. a bright fine day..
a breeze from off the shore
The sky is blue.. The trees are green
There’s so much to be done and seen..
The boats are coming back to land
The clink of gear.. the slap of wave
The one capsized they’ll have to save
What a pleasure to discover
All the things that can be done
In an afternoon at Manly
In the pleasant Sunday sun
