Song Lyric Sunday: Girls – ‘California Girls’

Even a dullard such as myself had rather guessed that, after ‘Boys’ last week, Helen’s theme for this Song Lyric Sunday was going to be ‘Girls’.

So, without further ado, here’s the first song that leapt to mind. Maybe a little politically incorrect these days, but I don’t think any further introduction is required for this Beach Boys classic.

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 Mid-West 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
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 Hawaii 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
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls

Written by Mike Love and Brian Wilson
