Jim Adams aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: SURF ROCK
I suppose this week I have picked the obvious track – you know the one that springs to mind as soon as you hear the term “Surf Rock”. The Beach Boys surely epitomize this genre.
“Surfin’ USA” is just perfect to exhibit this sound. I know there are lots of songs that could qualify under this umbrella, but really I think is the one that is unforgettable.
If everybody had an ocean Across the U. S. A. Then everybody'd be surfin' Like Californi-a You'd seem 'em wearing their baggies Huarache sandals too A bushy bushy blonde hairdo Surfin' U. S. A. You'd catch 'em surfin' at Del Mar Ventura County line Santa Cruz and Trestle Australia's Narrabeen All over Manhattan And down Doheny Way Everybody's gone surfin' Surfin' U.S.A. We'll all be planning that route We're gonna take real soon We're waxing down our surfboards We can't wait for June We'll all be gone for the summer We're on surfari to stay Tell the teacher we're surfin' Surfin' U. S. A. Haggerties and Swamies Pacific Palisades San Onofre and Sunset Redondo Beach L. A. All over La Jolla At Wa'imea Bay Everybody's gone surfin' Surfin' U.S. A. Everybody's gone surfin' Surfin' U.S. A. Everybody's gone surfin' Surfin' U.S. A. Written by: Chuck Berry and Brian Wilson
