The beach house we'd come to love has recently been sold
And the other place we rented in the days of old
Is too small to fit us all now that the kids are grown,
So - this year - our annual vacation plans are blown.
Started the tradition back in 1998;
All of us together at the beach and it was great!
Couldn't find a house to rent this year that's big enough,
Plus we're busy with this kitchen renovation stuff.
My whole clan's in mourning for our weeks spent at the waves;
Whole days at a stretch when everybody's kid behaves...
Does somebody know a place? Has anybody seen
Somewhere on the beach, that welcomes pets, and sleeps 15?
