On the Beach at New Quay

My brothers ran about playing football,
Mum and Dad spread the picnic rug,
My sister went looking for fossils,
Me, I sat on the sand and dug.

My brothers leapt about with a frisbee,
Mum and Dad had a snooze and a hug,
My sister went poking in rock pools,
Me, I just sat and dug.

My brothers splashed about in the water,
Mum and Dad poured tea from a jug,
My sister climbed a hill of boulders,
Me, I just dug and dug and dug.

My brothers and sisters stopped playing
Mum and Dad started packing away,
But me, in my super sand speedboat,
I sped off across the bay.
