When I bought that house and ship, I was young and full of zip,
left my my friends and family back in old Bayonne.
And so I made the race, and I staked me out a place
And settled down along a tidal zone

It flowed away, it flowed away
My little Seaside home it flowed away
I was living on a prayer when I built my shanty there.
Everything except my mortgage flowed away

I got this broken boat, and I fixed it up to float
Aimed to have Sawmill slice to feed my face
When I was done I tied the bow to the dock outside the house
And I knew that I had finally found my place

It flowed away, it flowed away
That ship that I fixed up flowed away
When the Atlantic had its panic it went down like The Titanic
All the pieces of my ship they flowed away

My banana stand, lost to the roving sand
The stock is probably down in old VA
All the cash inside sailed down Route 35
My Banana shop in seaside flowed away

It flowed away, it flowed away
Everything I owned flowed away
I hollered and I cussed when my stand went with a thrust
When my business that I own, it flowed away

I was living on a prayer when I built my shanty there.
I figured I was all set for all my life.
So up hopped into my woody and went looking for a goody
But, I found myself a puggle, and not a wife

He flowed away, he flowed away
My Jersey Shore pup he flowed away
I leaned on down to pet him, but I saw that he could swim
My jersey shore puggle flowed away

Then I was left alone a-listenin' to the moan
Of the sea around the corners of my shack
So I took off down the road when the ocean water flowed
A-travelin' with the waves cracking at my back

I flowed away, I flowed away
Mantoloking bridge was up ahead
I was living on a prayer as I saw my shanty tear
My house its settled in the ocean bed

Now I'm always close to home no matter where I roam,
For those waters spread all across the land
Makes no difference where I'm walkin', I can hear my ship a-rockin'
I can hear that puggle a-barkin' in the air

It flowed away, it flowed away
My little seaside home it flowed away
But my home is always near; its in the waters clear
My little seaside home it flowed away

I'm a writ of right New Jersyite, but we don't need to reunite
And Ill never get homesick 'til I die.
No matter where I'm found, my home is all around;
My seaside home is wherever it rains, or water lies

It flowed away, it flowed away,
My shanty down at exit 82
But all around the world, wherever sand is whirled
Some is what my seaside home broke into

It flowed away, it flowed away,
My little seaside home it flowed away
Its over in the sea where the waves are rolling free
My little seaside home it flowed away
