The singing in the rigging

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
