The Beach Boys

The Beach Boys are an American rock band, formed in 1961 in Hawthorne, California. The group was initially composed of brothers Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and friend Al Jardine. Managed by the Wilsons' father Murry, the Beach Boys signed to Capitol Records in 1962.

(Bow, bow, bow) Laa-do-day,
(Bow, bow, bow)

[Chorus]

She's not the little girl I once knew
She's not the little girl I once
She's not the little girl I once knew
She's not the little girl I once
She's not the little girl I once knew
She's not the little girl I once
She's not
