Down by the bay
Where the watermelons grow
Next to my home, I dare not go
For if I do, my mother will say
Don't you ever go down there again
The vines will get you and you'll have to live

Why'd he have to leave so soon
Why oh why did it have to be this way

You'll have to become the man of the house
A lot sooner than we thought you'd have to be

I'm sorry I had to leave so soon
I'm so sorry that it had to be this way

Refrain and first verse
