Surfer Joe

by The Surfaris

The Surfaris were an American surf rock band formed in Glendora, California in 1962. They are best known for two songs that hit the charts in the Los Angeles, California area, and nationally by May 1963: "Surfer Joe" on the A-side and "Wipe Out" on the B-side of a 45 RPM single.




Down in Yohee where the surfers all go
There's a big beach blondie named Surfer Joe
He's got a green woody & a board to match
And when he's riding the waves, man is he hard to catch

Surfer Joe, now look at him go-o-o
Surfer, surfer, surfer Joe
Go man go
Oh-o-o Surfer Joe

Joe went to Huntington's Meet one week
Where the annual surfing convention meet
He was hangin' five and walkin' the nose
And when the Meet was over, the trophy was Joe's

Surfer Joe, now look at him go-o-o
Surfer, surfer, surfer Joe
Go man go
Oh-o-o Surfer Joe

Surfer Joe joined Uncle Sam's marines today
They stationed him at Penalton, not far away
They cut off his long blond locks I'm told
And when he went on manouvers, Joe got cold

Surfer Joe, now look at him go-o-o
Surfer, surfer, surfer Joe
Go man go
Oh-o-o Surfer Joe
