It's automatic when I Talk with old friends The conversation turns to Girls we knew when their Hair was soft and long and the Beach was the place to go
Suntanned bodies and Waves of sunshine the California girls and a Beautiful coastline Warmed up weather Let's get together and Do it again
With a girl the lonely sea looks good Makes your night times warm and out of sight
Been so long (Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now) (Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now)
Well I've been thinking 'bout All the places we've surfed and danced and All the faces we've missed so let's get Back together and do it again

Andrew Capobianco from Winthrop-maI thought that in the opening I could hear what sounds like a Taurus Foot Pedal Synth, but it wasn't invented yet.
Beach Guy from LibertyvilleA great song, one that does not let us forget where The Beach Boys started, one that does not quite let us let go of the good times. A classic summary of what the Beach Boys were about. But this song also made it ok to move on to newer music, which was so enjoyable. Do it again was the opening song during their 50th anniversary tour. How appropriate.
Melinda from AustraliaMoanin’ Lisa I don’t know what those sounds are either. But I freakin love this song. I heard it as a little kid. And it went into my DNA. I went searching for it later on as an adult. It’s the best song ever written about recalling great times with friends. And it’s so much fun this song. And Jennifer Sun.. I agree. It’s one of the best intros ever done. Because it’s unique. They make a lot of fuss about The Beach Boys. Yeah. Well. It’s all deserved. They were very clever musically.
Jennifur Sun from RamonaIntro is my fav thing about this tune.
Moanin' Lisa from Chillicothe Mo.Really cool hit for the BBs from 1968. I was shocked to see that Billboard only had it peaking at #20. The Kansas City radio stations ranked it Top Ten back then. It was all over their airwaves, as I recall. I always wondered why the song sounded like it was recorded on cheap equipment because it sounded muffled & indistinct. However, I can hear someone talking in the background! Well, anyway I love the song. I don't know what that instrument is that makes those bizarre background noises like grinding knee-joints, but it's cool.
The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
