About Disney Girls

"Disney Girls (1957)" is a song written by Bruce Johnston for the American rock band The Beach Boys. It was released on their 1971 album, Surf's Up. The lead vocals are by Johnston, who also plays upright piano, Moog synthesizer, and mandolin. It is included on his 1977 solo album, Going Public. The song is a nostalgic reflection sung from the viewpoint of a man who rejects reality in favour of the nostalgia he felt towards the fantasy world of the girls in Walt Disney movies and television shows, songs by Patti Page and the days he made wine in his garage, enjoying lemonade in the country shade. "Disney Girls (1957)" has proven to be one of Bruce Johnston's most enduring songs, still occasionally performed by The Beach Boys in concert. It has been covered by many artists, including Art Garfunkel, Cass Elliott, Alexander Rybak, Doris Day, Jack Jones and Captain & Tennille. Elliot's version (from the album Cass Elliot) features Johnston and Carl Wilson. It is rumoured that The Byrds' Gene Clark has recorded it but his version remains unreleased.

Clearing skies and drying eyes
Now I see your smile
Darkness goes and softness shows
A changing style

Just in time words that rhyme
Well bless your soul
Now I'll fill your hands
With kisses and a Tootsie Roll

Oh reality, it's not for me
And it makes me laugh
Oh, fantasy world and Disney girls
I'm coming back

Patti Page and summer days
On old Cape Cod
Happy times making wine
In my garage
Country shade and lemonade

Guess I'm slowing down
It's a turned back world
With a local girl
In a smaller town

Open cars and clearer stars
That's what I've lacked
But fantasy world and Disney girls
I'm coming back

Love, hi Rick and Dave
Hi Pop, well good morning mom
Love, get up guess what
I'm in love with a girl I found
She's really swell
Cause she likes
Church, bingo chances and old time dances

All my life I spent the night
With dreams of you
And the warmth I missed
And for the things I wished
They're all coming true

I've got my love to give
And a place to live
Guess I'm gonna stay
It'd be a peaceful life
With a forever wife
And a kid someday

It's earlier nights
And pillow fights
And your soft laugh
Fantasy world and Disney girls
I'm coming back
