Goleta Beach is eroding away —
Sea and sand are causing decay.
Not to mention our own pollutants —
It’s amazing we’re not mutants!
A bit father south is old Hendry’s Beach,
Slough and all — you’d think it’d teach
Us all not to wade, or even be near
That smelly stuff and steer well-clear.
Bring in the ‘dozers — reclaim the land,
Down to East Beach, dig up the sand.
Used to send it to Hawaii —
If you can believe it —
Why not Goleta? — Doin’ our bit.
It’s closer to home — our neighbor to the north.
Local labor, for what its worth.
Staying in the state, within the county —
Creating jobs — all that bounty.
Hey wait a minnit — that ain’t funny,
Just realized we’ve got no money!
