The sun went down on a satellite town 
The tide licked the seawall, and no one was around 
While the radiant afterglow faded from the skies 
The neon lights came on like a thousand eyes 
High-rises, oil drums and beach hotels 
The strand was littered with broken dreams 
And seaweed, jellyfish and oyster shells 
Airplanes roared into the Plutonian night 
And the old bandstand was standing guard 
On REVERE BEACH BOULEVARD 

In the old days this was the place to be 
A crowded electric city by the sea 
Dramatic coasters, carrousels and parades 
A carnival of souls at the glittering arcades 
Fun houses, mirrors and Ferris wheels 
I used to go down the wooden pier 
And fish for ideas, flounders and eels 
Those were the days that made my life worthwhile 
Suburban bliss in my terraced yard 
On REVERE BEACH BOULEVARD 

The melodies of my summer days still linger in the air 
Drifting like ghosts across the shifting sands 
Spilling like crabs from the sea to the land 
Sounds from a long forgotten time 
Times may change but memories stay alive 
The winds and the waves don't care 

The years went by and weeds began to thrive 
Shady figures appeared on the oceanway drive 
The streets were paved with rage and frustration 
Crumbling facades and torn decorations 
Trouble came in with the rising tide 
Mysterious fires and hurricane waves 
The flames ate the pier, the ballrooms, the rides 
A storm swept the ashes in seventy-eight 
And times were getting hard 
On REVERE BEACH BOULEVARD
