California Girls
The Beach Boys Lyrics


Well, East coast girls are hip
I really dig those styles they wear
And the Southern girls with the way they talk
They knock me out when I'm down there

The Midwest farmer's daughters really make you feel alright
And the Northern girls with the way they kiss
They keep their boyfriends warm at night

I wish they all could be California (girls)
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls

The West coast has the sunshine
And the girls all get so tanned
I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian island
Dolls by a palm tree in the sand

I been all around this great big world
And I seen all kinds of girls
Yeah, but I couldn't wait to get back in the States
Back to the cutest girls in the world

I wish they all could be California (girls)
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls

I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)

@Vinyl 77 Well, I always found their 'fun fun fun' sound, squeaky clean image and saccharine harmonies really off-putting. But having discovered Pet Sounds I am now a fan of Brian's creativity - I love the songs and sounds of that record. Parts of Smiley Smile and later, more obscure items in their catalogue too.

Ironically: I'm Gen X, my parents are Boomers. I was telling them the other day that I've finally developed appreciation for the Beach Boys. They groaned.

"They're TERRIBLE," they said.

"No!," I protested. "Just listen to 'Let's Go Away for Awhile.' You'll see."

I don't think they're hearing me.

"Hey, " I said. Startled, she look at me, then at my T-shirt, then drained the rest of her Coke.
"How'd you find out where I worked?" she asked in a voice steeped in resignation.
"Pure chance. I came to buy records. "
"What're you looking for? "
"The Beach Boys LP with the song 'California Girls.'"
She nodded a skeptical nod, got up, srtode over to the shelves, grabbed a record, and brought it back like a well-trained dog.
"This is it, right?"
I nodded. With my hands still jammed in my pockets, I scanned the store.

They keep their boyfriends warm at night

I wish they all could be California

The Beatles: We got some great harmonies going.
The Beach Boys: Hold my surfboard.

@Milo Snow โ€‹The Beatles were a lot more successful and some parts more talented though The Beach Boys are great. Remember nobody compares to them. So you shouldn't get mad that they're better. The Beatles didn't have the best neither did Beach Boys but The Beatles were the most influential to the majority of the world and were the most creative in songwriting. Half of the career of The Beatles isn't half the fame of The Beach Boys fame believe it or not.

@hart. George Martin has said the genius was all the Beatles he just made their ideas reality that's all Martin did, he has even admitted as much

Johnson Varghese

@Daniel Wilkins are you an idiot that was one of the best albums of all time. The Beach Boys were as good as the Beatles dont shit on another band

MetalJesusSucks

@Ruben Saenz Daniel Wilkins had a lobotomy. Don't pay him any mind.

Ruben Saenz

@Eduardo Mota when he was with The Beatles yeah. Solo not so much!

The first 25 seconds is a small masterpiece by itself, thank you Brian!

Marvin Thiessen

@Ty Willinganz No worries, everyone here loves Brian Wilson's catalogue of music, if someone doesn't, it's their loss.

Ty Willinganz

@Marvin Thiessen I expressed myself imperfectly. Love's mundane, accessible lyrics made Wilson's genius accessible to the American public is what I meant

Marvin Thiessen

@Ty Willinganz Mike was a good singer, songwriter, and co-founded the group, that's it. Brian was all of that plus an arranger, composer, bass player, without his musical genius the band would've been another SoCal lounge act playing at state fairs, colleges, and classic car meets. Believe what you want, the facts I mentioned are public knowledge unless you took a 60 year nap.
In the early to mid-sixties Brian didn't have the studio high-tech to utilize like musicians now have and he still made incredible albums. Who else could've done that?
