Hap's Random Beach boy Lyric of the day!

All of the lyrics to these songs can be seen at Cabin Essence, a Web Page for Brian Wilson


this is "Surf's up", which originally was supposed to be on Smile, but was put on an album by the same name as the song.

Surf’s up
Aboard a tidal wave
Come about hard and join
The young and often spring you gave
I heard the word
Wonderful thing
A children’s song

Child, child, child, child, child
A child is the father of the man
Child, child, child, child, child
A child is the father of the man
A children’s song
Have you listened as they played
Their song is love
And the children know the way
That’s why the child is the father to the man
Child, child, child, child, child
Child, child, child, child, child
Na na na na na na na na
Child, child, child, child, child
That’s why the child is the father to the man
Child, child, child, child, child

This was a previously un-released song, "Soulful old man sunshine". It can be heard on the Endless Harmony dvd and cd.


In that soulful ol’ man sunshine

She looks so fresh and sweet, keeps herself soft and tender
No wonder that I can sing a song about my baby
She looks so healthy, I feel so doggone wealthy
No wonder that I can sing a song about my baby

So happy, together love is better in that soulful ol’ man sunshine
Do-do-do

She wakes up singing songs, of happy everafters
Well let me just tell you ‘bout my ever-lovin’ lady
One bright September, I can remember
The morning we walked together laughin’ in the sunshine

Hey old man shine your love on me
Hey old man shine your love on me
Soulful old man sunshine shine your light divine on me
Hey ol’ man shine your love on me
Then suddenly the light shines through and I see you there standing before me
Today the world is new I feel so high and so far within you, yeah

Morning and evening, my love is weaving
A magical thread of joy that joins our hearts together
So happy, together love is better in that soulful old man sunshine

Ths is "Friends", from the Friends CD.

We've been friends now for so many years
We've been together through the good times and the tears
Turned each other on to the good things that life has to give

We drift apart for a little bit of a spell
One night I get a call and I know that you're well
And days I was down you would help me get out of my hole

This is a song by Dennis Wilson. Baby Blue. It's on the "L.A." album. (Light Album).

Lie alone in bed at night
Feel the pull of a lonely day
Abstract music start to play
I wonder where you were today

...

Late at night
When the whole world's sleeping
I dream of you
Close to you I feel your sweet heart beating
I dream of you

Late at night late at night
Honey late at night I dream of you
I dream of you

Baby baby blue
Baby blue eyes I love you new
I hold you in my dreams tonight
Hold you 'til morning light

This is another Dennis Wilson song (also some of the other Beach Boys wrote it with him). It's called "It's about time", and can be found on Sunflower.

Sunflower, btw, is widely considered the groups best "Beach Boys" album. You have to buy it to know what I'm talking about.


I used to be a famous artist,
Proud as I could be,
Struggling to express myself
For the whole world to see.
I used to blow my mind sky high,
Searching for the lost elation,
Little did I know the joy I was to find
In knowing I am only me.

I'm singing in my heart.
I'm singing in my heart.
I'm singing, love to sing,
I love to sing it from my heart.

Of the creation, yeah,
Of which I'm doing my part,
With an open-hearted laugh
Of realization in my mind.
And now I'm but a child who art
Erect in humility,
Serving out of love, everyone I meet,
In truth who are really me.

It never stops
For you or me
It moves along
From day to day

That's why my love (oooo-oooo-oooo)
That's why my love (oooo-oooo-oooo)
You'll never stay (oooo-oooo-oooo)
You'll never stay (oooo-oooo-oooo)

This pain in my heart (ooooooooo)
These tears in my eyes (ooooooooo)
Please tell the truth (ooooooooo)
You're like the lonely sea (sea)

Brian Wilson wrote this song, and the Beach Boys released it. "Girl Don't tell me".

I want to say Al Jardine sang lead, but I'm not 100% sure. It's on the "Summer Days (and summer nights!)" album.

Hi little girl, it's me
Don't you know who I am?
I met you last summer when
When I came up to stay with my grand
I'm the guy-uy-uy who
Left you with tears in his eyes
You didn't answer my letters
So I figured it was just lie

Your hair's getting longer and your shorts
Mmm they sure fit you fine
I'll bet you went out
Every night during ol' school time
But this ti-i-ime I'm not gonna count on you
I'll see you this summer
And forget you when I go back to school

Girl Don't tell me you'll write-ite-ite
Girl don't tell me you'll write-ite-ite
Girl don't tell me you'll write me again this time

Hi little girl, it's me
Don't you know who I am?
I met you last summer when
When I came up to stay with my grand
Said I'm the guy-uy-uy who
Left you with tears in his eyes
You didn't answer my letters
So I figured it was just lie

Girl Don't tell me you'll write-ite-ite
Girl don't tell me you'll write-ite-ite
Girl don't tell me you'll write me again this time

Girl don't tell me you'll write me again this time

Kiss my baby, one of the more underrated songs from the early era. From the Album, Beach Boys Today!

Please don't let me argue anymore
I won't make you worry like before
Can't remember what we fought about
Late late last night we said it was over
But I remember when we thought it out
We both had a broken heart

Woah Baby
(Kiss me Baby)
Woah Baby
(Love to hold you)
Woah Baby
(Kiss me baby)
Woah Baby
(Love to hold you)

As I drove away I felt a tear
It hit me I was losing someone dear
Told my folks I would be alright
Tossed and I turned, my head was so heavy
Then I wondered as it got light
Were you still awake like me?

Woah Baby
(Kiss me Baby)
Woah Baby
(Love to hold you)
Woah Baby
(Kiss me baby)
Woah Baby
(Love to hold you)

Tight

Woah Baby
(Kiss me Baby)
Woah Baby
(Love to hold you)
Woah Baby
(Kiss me baby)
Woah Baby
(Love to hold you)
Woah Baby
(Kiss me baby)
Woah Baby
(Love to hold you)

From "Wild Honey", this is the song "I'd love just once to see you".

I'm doing this and I'm doing that
And I'm a-walking the floor
I drink a little of this and eat a little that
And poke my head out the door

I get thinking I'm wasting the night away
I wouldn't mind if I could get with you right away
Oh honey don't know how long it's been
But this feeling's building up inside again

I wash the dishes and I rinsed up the sink
Like a busy bee
I make up a song as I'm a-working along
No one's watching me

I wish that you were here to help me dry
When's the last time you baked me a pie
You had a way of making it come alive
It's not too late for you to take a drive

It's not too late
I'd love just once to see you
I'd love just once to see you
I'd love just once to see you
In the nude

When I grow up to be a man, from Beach Boys today!
When I grow up to be a man
Will I dig the same things that turn me on as a kid?
Will I look back and say that I wish I hadn't done what I did?
Will I joke around and still dig those sounds
When I grow up to be a man?

Will I look for the same things in a woman that I dig in a girl?
(fourteen fifteen)
Will I settle down fast or will I first wanna travel the world?
(sixteen seventeen)
Now I'm young and free, but how will it be
When I grow up to be a man?

Oooooo Ooooooo Oooooooo
Will my kids be proud or think their old man is really a square?
(eighteen nineteen)
When they're out having fun yeah, will I still wanna have my share?
(twenty twenty-one)
Will I love my wife for the rest of my life
When I grow up to be a man?

What will I be when I grow up to be a man?
(twenty-two twenty-three)
Won't last forever
(twenty-four twenty-five)
It's kind of sad
(twenty-six twenty-seven)
Won't last forever
(twenty-eight twenty-nine)
It's kind of sad
(thirty thirty-one)
Won't last forever
(thirty-two . . .)

This is a portion of a Carl Wilson penned song, Long promised road. It's on the Surf's Up album.


So hard to answer future's riddle
When ahead is seeming so far behind
So hard to laugh a child-like giggle
When the tears start to torture my mind
So hard to shed the life of before
To let my soul automatically soar

But I hit hard at the battle that's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the roaddblocks a-stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles that are binding me down

Sew up the wounds of evolution
And the now starts to get in my way
So what if life's a revelation
If the mind speaks of only today
So real, the pain growing in my soul
Of climbing up to reality's goal

But I hit hard at the battle that's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the roaddblocks a-stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles that are binding me down

I guess I just wasn't made for these times.

Pet Sounds

I keep looking for a place to fit
Where I can speak my mind
I've been trying hard to find the people
That I won't leave behind

They say I got brains
But they ain't doing me no good
I wish they could

Each time things start to happen again
I think I got something good goin' for myself
But what goes wrong

Sometimes I feel very sad
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)

I guess I just wasn't made for these times

Every time I get the inspiration
To go change things around
No one wants to help me look for places
Where new things might be found

Where can I turn when my fair weather friends cop out
What's it all about

Each time things start to happen again
I think I got something good goin' for myself
But what goes wrong

Sometimes I feel very sad
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)

here is the cleaned version of Heroes and Villians. Originally it was supposed to be on the fated "Smile" album, but that never was released (as is). So it made it to the Smiley Smile album. It's by Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks.

I've been in this town so long that back in the city
I've been taken for lost and gone
And unknown for a long long time

Fell in love years ago
With an innocent girl
From the Spanish and Indian home
Home of the heroes and villains

Once at night Catillian squared the fight
And she was right in the rain of the bullets that eventually brought her down
But she's still dancing in the night
Unafraid of what a dude'll do in a town full of heroes and villains

Heroes and villains
Just see what you've done

Heroes and villains
Just see what you've done

Stand or fall I know there
Shall be peace in the valley
And it's all an affair
Of my life with the heroes and villains

My children were raised
You know they suddenly rise
They started slow long ago
Head to toe healthy weathy and wise

I've been in this town so long
So long to the city
I'm fit with the stuff
To ride in the rough
And sunny down snuff I'm alright
By the heroes and

Heroes and villains
Just see what you've done

Heroes and villains
Just see what you've done

Let us go on this way, by Brian Wilson & Mike Love. A get part is when Carl (I believe) leads them in the "god please let us go on this way" bit. This is from the Love You Album.


To get t'you baby I went through the wringer
Ain't gonna let you slip through my fingers
Going to school isn't my fondest desire
But sittin' in class you set my soul on fire
God please let us go on this way

All day long I practiced what to say-ay
I think about this game that I like to play-ay
When I leave you I'm so depressed
'Cause you're my only happiness
God please let us go on this way

Seems we have extra-sensory perception
You can send me thoughts I'd have no objection
Now we can fly high in the sky
We'll live forever, we'll never die

God please let us go on this way-ay
(God please let us go on)
God please let us go on this way-ay
(God please let us go on)
God please let us go on this way-ay
(God please let us go on)
God don't let her slip through my fingers
(God please let us go on)
God please let us go on this way-ay

arguably Brian Wilsons best song, God Only Knows. From Pet Sounds, this Brian Wilson and Tony Asher penned masterpiece is one of the best songs ever song by any group, imho.

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I'll make you so sure about it

God only knows what I'd be without you

If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

God only knows what I'd be without you

God only knows what I'd be without you

If you should ever leave me
Well life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

This whole world, written by Brian Wilson, on the Sunflower cd.


I'm thinking about a-this whole world
Late at night I think about the love of this whole world
Lots of different people everywhere
And when I go anywhere I see love I see love I see love

When girls get mad at boys and go
Many times they're just putting on a show
But when they leave you wait alone

You are there like everywhere like everyone you see
Happy cause your living and your free

Now here comes another day for your love
(I'm thinking about a-this whole world)
(A-this whole world)
Love

Woo oo oo oo ooo ooo oo oo
(Woo oo oo oo ooo ooo oo oo)

Aummmmm wooo wooooo bop didit

Late at night I think about the love of this whole world
(This whole world)
Oomm dot dit it
Oomm dot dit it
Oomm dot dit it
