Surf City
Jan & Dean Lyrics


Two girls for every boy

I bought a '30 Ford wagon and we call it a woodie
(Surf City, here we come)
You know it's not very cherry, it's an oldie but a goodie
(Surf City, here we come)
Well, it ain't got a back set or a rear window
But it still gets me where I wanna go

And we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun
You know we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun, now
Two girls for every boy

They say they never roll the streets up 'cause there's always somethin' goin'
(Surf City, here we come)
You know they're either out surfin' or they got a party growin'
(Surf City, here we come)
Yeah, and there's two swingin' honeys for every guy
And all you gotta do is just wink your eye

And we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun, now
You know we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun
You know we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one, now
Two girls for every boy

And if my woody breaks down on me somewhere on the surf route
(Surf City, here we come)
I'll strap my board to my back and hitch a ride in my wetsuit
(Surf City, here we come)
And when I get to Surf City I'll be shootin' the curl
And checkin' out the parties for a surfer girl

And we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun
You know we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun, now
Two girls for every
Two girls for every boy

Brian Wilson wrote this and gave it to Dean. When Brian heard the demo from the studio musicians called the wrecking crew, the studio pros, he was amazed how good it was. That act of generosity by Brian helped him discover he could do "Good Vibrations" with the wrecking crew himself and get it top quality. So it came back to him that way.

Good trivia. Loved Jan and Dean and The Beach Boys. The Beach Boys had a recording studio in the town where I grew up and the town, Pacific Palisades, was in Surfin USA. I met/photographed Dean with a friend of mine at the A&M Records Christmas Party in 1971.

Important disclaimer - this is the Jan and Dean sound, that the beach boys copied.

joe jones

@burlingtonbill1 yes, I was thinking that too.

Brian did a TON of songs with The Wrecking Crew WAY before "Good Vibrations."

Bill Ferron

Jan sang this with Brian Wilson.

Ahhh! It's so nostalgic. I used to listen this song on my radio in late 1960's.

Love these surf songs - sunny and happy - we need more of it !

Durham Carnivores

@rebecca lane I wish we did have pink slips.

rebecca lane

When I passed my test in 82 I couldn’t resist coming home and saying to my husband “ I got the pink slip daddy “ ( even tho I didn’t of course as I was in the uk ) 😀
