Down at the shore there's a place Where there's no one vacationing There's just the sound of the call Of the wild overcoming The fear of the unknown

And I've got something To help you understand Something waiting there Underneath the land My metal detector Is with me all of the time I'm the inspector over the mine

Look past the volleyball Look past the squawking gull Ignore the mountain of discarded folderol

'Cause I've got something To make you understand Something hidden there Underneath the sand My metal detector Is with me all of the time I'm the inspector over the mine Metal detector, watch it shine

Every seashell has a story to tell If you're listening But underneath every shell there's a story as well If you've heard enough of the sea Then everything on the top Will just suddenly stop seeming interesting So listen now to the sound Of the things that are found underground

Don't need no volleyball Don't need no squawking gull Don't need to look at any bathing beauty doll

'Cause I've got something To help you understand Something waiting there Underneath the sand My metal detector Is with me all of the time I'm the inspector over the mine

Look past the volleyball Look past the squawking gull Ignore the mountain of discarded folderol

'Cause I've got something To make you understand Something hidden there Beneath the sand My metal detector Is with me all of the time I'm the inspector over the mine Metal detector, watch it shine

Don't need no volleyball Don't need no squawking gull Metal detector, all the time
