By Kathryn Dyer and Chas. Alfin (1928)

California I’ll soon be returning
There’s no place haunts my mem’ry like you
For your bright sunlit skies I am yearning
And your flower beds sprinkled with dew

You’re an Eden I’ll always remember
And I dream of its charms night and day
Where the sun shines as bright in December
As it does in June or May

Long Beach, my home town,
Queen of the western shore
I have traveled around
And no place can compare to your climate so rare

Your bright harbor lights
Make a path on the silver sea
You’re the queen beach of sunny California
Long Beach, you’re home sweet home to me

Signal Hill like a bright starry kingdom
Stands alone as a monarch supreme
While the ships soaring high find a haven
In the port of an air pilot’s dream

On your long sandy strand hearts are lighter
And all care seems to vanish away
While the waves breaking soft seem to murmur
What my soul will always say

Long Beach, my home town,
Queen of the western shore
I have traveled around
And no place can compare to your climate so rare

Your bright harbor lights
Make a path on the silver sea
You’re the queen beach of sunny California
Long Beach, you’re home sweet home to me

Words and Music by Eddie Klein (1923)

I’ve travelled through this USA
I’ve been from coast to coast
Perhaps I’ve been in your home town
Though I’m not one to boast

I want to tell you of a town
No limit to it’s reach
It’s not LA nor Frisco
Its little old Long Beach

Our front door is the ocean
Our side door, Signal Hill
Our back door, our industries
And our motto “I will”

So Lets all get together
For the sake of Old Lang Syne
And when someone asks
Where are you from
Shout Long Beach For Mine

There’s thousands coming ev’ry day
To this most wondrous place
They’re building houses overnight
To keep up with the pace

Our recreation park will be
Our playground and a peach
More reason we should tell folks
Of little old Long Beach

Our front door is the ocean
Our side door, Signal Hill
Our back door our industries
And our motto “I will”

So Lets all get together
For the sake of Old Lang Syne
And when someone asks
Where are you from
Shout Long Beach For Mine

Words and music by Miss Ula Kitchen (1918)

Long Beach Long Beach by the sea
There Virginia waits for me
How her eyes with love light beam
A queen among a thousand queens and

Where the breakers splash and play
Every Day’s a holiday
Life’s one loving melody
In Long Beach by the sea

Long Beach Long Beach by the sea
There Virginia waits for me
How her eyes with love light beam
A queen among a thousand queens and

Where the breakers splash and play
Every Day’s a holiday
Life’s one loving melody
In Long Beach by the sea
In Long Beach by the sea
In Long Beach by the sea

    Give my regards to Broadway
    Remember me to Herald Square
    Tell all the gang at Forty-Second Street
    That I will soon be there
    Whisper of how I’m yearning
    To mingle with the old time throng
    Give my regards to old Broadway
    And say that I’ll be there e’er long

    Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag
    And smile, smile, smile
    Don’t let your cheer and laughter hear the snag
    Smile, kids, that’s the style!
    What’s the use of worrying?
    It never was worthwhile
    So pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag
    And smile, smile, smile

    By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea
    You and I, you and I, oh how happy we’ll be
    When each wave comes a-rolling in, we will duck or swim
    And we’ll float and fool around the water.

    Over and under and then up for air
    Pa is rich, ma is rich, so now what do we care?
    I love to be beside your side, beside the sea,
    beside the seaside, By the beautiful sea

    Make sure to start off saying them slowly, over annunciating all of your consonants and vowels. Once you get the hang of each one you can practice them at a faster pace. Have fun!
