V E R S E 1 A
Though you wife has been allaying
Your suspicions, folks are saying
That she's busy running 'round

With any boy toy who is handy
That's her modus operandi
But as yet no evidence is found

For she's furtive and clandestine
She won't have her handsome guest in
She goes elsewhere to cavort

Somewhere scenic, some sultry
Somewhere perfect for adultery
Off to an inn of last resort

V E R S E 1 B
Yes, your darling who was once green
Is now smoothly rubbing sunscreen
Onto some stranger's back

In the smell of oxybenzone
He is not long for the friendzone
Very soon they'll hit the sack

She met this one at the foot spa
And she had a lot of chutzpah
To invite him for a spin

If you knew it, it would grieve you
That they’re off now to deceive you in

C H O R U S 1
The Sea View Inn
Great for quick assignations
Those impromptu vacations
A beach front for sin
At the Sea View Inn
Where their passions are burning
And the ice machine’s churning
Her escapades end and begin
At the Sea View Inn
At the Sea View Inn

V E R S E 2 A
On a business trip to Natchez
In your pool bag you find matches
From an unfamiliar place

Well, she tried to spare you this sting
But so frequent was her trysting
One rendezvous has left a trace

He’s not her be-all nor her end-all
He is just a hunky Ken doll
A diversion for a day

Then you learn he's one of ten gents
You want justice, you want vengeance
You want to make the harlot pay

V E R S E 2 B
When she married you, she struck gold
Now she’s making you a cuckold
Still you’ve got to cool your wrath

And you’ll kiss your lucky horseshoe,
Pray to God she won't divorce you
At least once you do the math

For if she does, she's gonna clean up
’Cause she never signed that pre-nup
There’s no way that you can win

But whether she decides to leave you
She is off now to deceive you in

C H O R U S 2
The Sea View Inn
With its blue ocean vistas
Nothing stings more than this does
To find that she’s been
At the Sea View Inn
While you’re stuck at home livid
With your fantasies vivid
You’ve learned about love’s evil twin
From the Sea View Inn
From the Sea View Inn
