The Sea Dragon Coast

 

a sea dragon

(Words and Music by Sandi McMenamin © April 2005)


1. In the waters of southern Australia
A mystical creature resides
Small and fragile, with seaweed-like wings
There in the sea-grass it hides.

2. Sheltered under the Rapid Bay jetty
The leafy sea dragons dance
Whenever someone cares for the planet
Giving our sea life a chance.

3. From Myponga down to Cape Jervis
Parawa through Delamere
Hiking the Heysen Trail
Voices echoing say:

CHORUS
Come away to The Sea Dragon Coast
Come away to the sea dragon’s home on the bay
Every view takes your breath away
Walk awhile with the sea and the sand and the sky
There’s a paradise-look in your eye – on The Sea Dragon Coast.

4. Golden beaches of Carrickalinga
Forests and vineyards abound
Rustic charm of old Yankalilla
Cafés of Normanville town.

5. Ring the old bell, awake Second Valley
To a feast of food, song, and wine
From Deep Creek Park up to Inman Valley
Celebrate! It’s festival time!

6. In this part of southern Australia
Where rugged cliffs greet the tides
Sunsets light up the sea
Sea breezes beckon to me.

Come away to The Sea Dragon Coast
Come away to the sea dragon’s home on the bay
Every view takes your breath away
Walk awhile with the sea and the sand and the sky
There’s a paradise-look in your eye – on The Sea Dragon Coast.

La, de, da………
Walk awhile with the sea and the sand and the sky
There’s a paradise-look in your eye – on The Sea Dragon Coast
The Sea Dragon Coast.
