  • Lyrics
  • This song is about surfing. Notice the first letter of each line for the meaning:

    (S)he's my fave
    (U)ndressing in the sun
    (R)eturn to sea
    (F)orgetting everyone
    (E)leven high
    (R)ide the wave
  • The Pixies aren't known for surf music, but it's something they enjoyed. Frontman Frank Black explained: "I think some of our stuff sounds kinda surfy sometimes. The sound is really basic and totally involves chord progressions and a cute little riff."
