"By the Beautiful Sea" is a popular song about cavorting near the water, performed by Rowlf the Dog and Jimmy Dean in the December 12, 1963 broadcast of The Jimmy Dean Show.

In Rowlf and Jimmy's version, the second line "You and me, you and me" becomes the grammatically correct (but unrhyming) "You and I." At the song's end, Rowlf dives behind the bench, spouts water, and finds a fish.

Ernie sings a bit of the song to himself at the beginning of a 1971 Sesame Street sketch set at the seashore.
