“It’s that time, that time of the month
Well I woke up early and I got a hunch
Gonna head on down to the beach today, surf all my girl probs away
‘Cause all I wanna do is cry, ask monther nature why, why, why
Listen to the Cramps on my stereo….
Surfin’ the crimson wave today.”
– “Crimson Wave” by Tacocat
