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. The band's early music gained popularity across the United States for its close vocal harmonies and lyrics reflecting a Southern California youth culture of surfing, cars, and romance. By the mid 1960s, Brian Wilson's growing creative ambition and songwriting ability would dominate the group's musical direction.

On my way to sunny Californ-I-a
On my way to spend another sunny day

Water, water get yourself in the cool, clear, water
The sun shines brightly down on penny's place
The sun shines brightly down on the bay
The airs so clean it'll just take your mind away
Take your mind away
Take your mind away

Have you ever been south of Monterrey
Barrancas carve the coast line and the chaparral flows to the sea
Neath waves of golden sunshine
And have you ever been north of morro bay
The south coast plows the sea
And the people there are of the breed
They don't need electricity
Water, water, cool cascades of clear, clear water
The sun dance final scene sets the hills ablaze.
Horizon edges quick up the mountains way.

Have you ever been down Salinas way?
Where Steinbeck found the valley
And he wrote about it the way it was in his travelings with Charley
And have you ever walked down through the sycamores
Where the farmhouse used to be
There the monarchs autumn journey ends
On a windswept Cyprus tree

Water get water get yourself in that
Get yourself in that get yourself in that cool, clear, water
The sun shines brightly down on penny's place
Get yourself in that water
The airs so clean that it just takes your mind away
Take your mind away
Take your mind away

Have you ever been to a festival, the big sure congregation?
Where country Joe will do his show
And he'd sing about liberty
And the people there in the open air, one big family.
Yeah the people there love to sing and share
Their new found liberty
