Lyrics

God bless us and protect us, through wave after wave. Deliver us from flood waters, let us live another day. The Atlantic crushed the boardwalk, traumatized the folks who stayed, but I prayed, Lord I prayed. God Bless us and protect us, this is where we want to stay, right here in Long Beach, don't let us wash away. So many people, they been put in harm's way. And I'm begging you, Lord I'm beggin, let Long Beach, stay....

Long live Long Beach, from the east end to the west. The surfers and the polar bears, the musicians, and the vets...

Long live Long Beach from the cops to the bars.. Lord I love this town, 11561... 11561
