  • Summer
    Sixty-one
    A goddess became my song
    I fell in her ocean eyes
    As endless as the sky
    Forever she'll be my surfer girl
    Forever she'll be my surfer girl
    My little one

    First love
    Is the moment
    You can't repeat
    But you'll always own it
    The gift she gave to me
    Her timeless melody
    Forever she'll be my surfer girl
    Forever she'll be my surfer girl
    My little one

    So sweet
    (now there's all kinds of music)
    So sweet
    (and don't you know, the truth is)
    So sweet
    (you were my special lover)
    So sweet
    (you were my baby grand)
    So sweet
    (such a sweet ballad and)
    Oh, so sweet
    (sweet voices right from heaven, radio seven)

    So long, so long ago
    (ohhhh)
    To waves gently say hello
    (ohhhh)
    We'll never say goodbye
    (ohhhh)
    Were the horizon gone

    Forever she'll be my surfer girl
    Forever she'll be my surfer girl
    My little one

  • Stu from Suffern, NyThe original "Surfer Girl" was the first song Brian Wilson ever wrote and the first one he produced. It was originally recorded in 1962. An amazing time cycle spanning 46 years.
