That's The Way
Walking the beach at sunrise:
that's the way to begin a day...
putting footprints in the sand—
that's the way to begin a day.
I watch the waves break on the shore,
then can't see my prints any more...
that's the way to begin a day—
yes, that's the way!

A winter swim in Hawaii:
that's the way to spend a day...
diving among the coral reefs—
that's the way to begin a day.
The fish are dressed up in neon,
I don't know where the time has gone...
that's the way to spend a day—
yes, that's the way!

Riding the surf at sunset:
that's the way to send-off a day...
catching a wave, then wiping out—
that's the way to send-off a day.
A broken board, a jammed thumb,
a busted lip, and lots more fun...
that's the way to send-off a day—
yes, that's the way!

The moon comes up behind a mountain:
that's the way to end a day...
constellations fall into the sea—
that's the way to end a day.
Tradewinds blow, the breeze is cool,
palm trees perform the hula...
that's the way to end a day—
yes, that's the way!
