Summertime’s comin’ – life’s a beach (summer city – summer city)
Don’t try the car phone – we’ll be out of reach (such a pity – what a pity)
Skateboard, windsurf, tan every day
Drive to the beach in my… Cabriolet
Summertime’s comin’ – school’s out of reach (at the drive-in, we’re at the drive-in)
Don’t bother goin’ – no one left to teach (we’ll be flyin’ – really flyin’)
Volleyball playoff’s, beach blanket sports,
Day-glo sunglasses.. fluorescent shorts.
Summertime’s comin’ – there’s girls on the beach (we’ll be tryin’ – really tryin’)
Don’t try to call them – they’ll be out of reach (we were tryin’ – really tryin’)
Beach bunnies, sailboats sandcastles, Malibu,
Muscle beach, ice-cream… me and you!
Time: About 1996
Recorder: Sony Reel-to-Reel
Song From: Original
Instrument(s): Yamaha PSS-680 Synthesizer, Fender Telecaster Squire
Significance: I felt it was time to salute the Beach Boys and write a Beach song. I’m not sure if the song captures the Beach Boy genre, I guess it just ends up being my Beach song. You can guess the era by the song’s words..
