Sand In My Suitcase

A beach style song with piano backs a warm memory/cold reality story about a Michigan boy's introduction to beach music, shag dancing, and long distance love by a local girl he meets on a break from school.

Lyrics

"Sand In My Suitcase"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

You tried to teach me how to dance the shag

And you took it way  too seriously

Carolina girls like you, think you're so cool

Myrtle beach just wasn't my kind of scene


It was almost a forgetful vacation

But you were so hot it made up for a lot


There's still sand in my suitcase

Think I've got the post spring break blues

There's still sand in my suitcase

From my days on the east coast with you

Reminding me of our week-long fling

I'm still sad it had to end so soon


You tried to teach me about beach music

Still don't understand what it's supposed to be

Seems like a copy of the Motown sound

Can't fool a Michigan boy like me


It was almost a forgetful vacation

But you were so hot it made up for a lot


There's still sand in my suitcase

Think I've got the post spring break blues

There's still sand in my suitcase

From my days on the east coast with you

Reminding me of our week-long fling

I'm still sad it had to end so soon


We were young and free and wild and crazy

No parents around to keep us from our fun

Drove down in my muscle car to find where the girls are

Who wear those skimpy bikinis in the sun....and I found one


It was almost a forgetful vacation

But you were so hot it made up for a lot


There's still sand in my suitcase

Think I've got the post spring break blues

There's still sand in my suitcase

From my days on the east coast with you

Reminding me of our week-long fling

I'm still sad it had to end so soon
