This was also demo for the Signals with a girl's perspective, but I guess it's not too weird with my vocals. Did the extra backing vocals tonight. My lame tribute to Brian Wilson and the Boys. Dedicated to my old pal John Stamos.


Long blond hair, and a golden brown tan
Waxing down their surfboards in the warm warm sand
All summer long, that's where they'll be
Riding the riptide in the deep blue sea

(Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach,
Huntington Beach, Sonova Beach )
Callifornia Boys
(Go get'm, go get'm, go get'm, go)
California Boys
(Don't let'm, don't let'm, don't let'm, no)
California Noise
(Listen to the sound of the radio)
They are the best, North, South, East, and West!

They're not in the mountains, they'll be down by the ocean
Sandals, sunglasses, and coconut lotion
I'm not a local, don't get me wrong,
Down at the beach all summer long

Don't need to see the world, just need to be a girl who loves a California Boy!
