    I scan the horizon for you, Mimi
    I scan for the both of us
    I scan the horizon for you, Mimi
    I stand and scan on the strand of sand
    stand and scan on the strand of sand

    but first I'm sitting over here
    see that gaggle of guys and girls
    a typical day at the beach
    well, typical 'til I make my speech

    there is a girl out on the sea
    floating on a pink surfboard
    with a picnic lunch and parasol
    sitting there like a typical girl

    this is not a locker room
    and that's a surfboard --- not a yacht
    the arrangement's not --- quite --- quite there

    one girl laughs at skinny guys
    someone else points out a queer
    they're all jocks --- both guys and girls
    press the button --- take your cue

    and see the girl with perfect teeth
    she picks up lonely guys in bars
    then she takes off when they've bought her drinks
    don't you have money? I ask
    of course I do...

    this is not a locker room
    and that's a surfboard --- not a yacht
    the arrangement's not --- quite --- quite there

    but the day was faultless in beauty
    pitched on tropical scenery
    stretched from white sand
    up to the open sky
    down to the shining sea again
    and then back to me
    and Mimi on the beach
    Mimi on the beach
    Mimi and me...

    I'm still sitting over there
    one guy just got up and brayed
    they wag their words --- they're all in heat
    I can ignore it --- just don't steam up the view

    Mimi's still out on the sea
    floating on a pink surfboard
    she's checking out her arms and legs
    in case her casing's getting burnt

    this is not a locker room
    and that's a surfboard --- not a yacht
    the arrangement's not --- quite --- quite there

    but the day was faultless in beauty
    pitched on tropical scenery
    stretched from white sand
    up to the open sky
    down to the shining sea again
    and then back to me
    and Mimi on the beach
    Mimi on the beach
    Mimi and me...

    you don't know me but I've been watching you all day
    and I've come to the edge of the water now to have my say
    the picnic lunch is off
    throw your parasol away
    put your belly to the board, Mimi, and paddle out to sea
    then turn the board around, Mimi, until you're facing me
    then you wait for the waves to start building
    for the valleys to deepen
    and the mountains to increase in height
    and when the right times comes, Mimi
    you grab the edges of the board with your hands
    lift yourself up and stand there
    and see as fasr as you can see
    stand up, Mimi
    STAND UP

    I scan the horizon for you, Mimi
    I scan for the both of us
    I scan the horizon for you, Mimi
    I stand and scan on the strand of sand
    stand and scan on the strand of sand

    the great leveller is coming
    and he's not going to stop to take your pulse
    and he's not going to ask you why you're the way you are
    and I think that's the worst part
    you never get a chance to explain yourself
    and he's going to take those mountains
    and shove them into the valleys
    until there's nothing left except a vast expanse
    and you'll float there, Mimi
    on the flat Sargasso Sea of your soul
    and if they pull you away from your bleaching pink surfboard
    and stretch you across the wind
    you'll make no sound
    wet leaves on a dry map
    nothing, nobody
    the great leveller or the great escape?

    but the day was faultless in beauty
    pitched on tropical scenery
    stretched from white sand
    up to the open sky
    down to the shining sea again
    and then back to me
    and Mimi on the beach
    Mimi on the beach
    Mimi and me...

    there is a girl out on the sea
    floating on a pink surfboard
    a parasol floats nearby
    the arrangement's not --- quite --- quite there
