    Plymouth rock, roll over
    Rock, rock and roll

    To the church of the American Indian ...

    Rock, rock and roll
    Plymouth rock, roll over
    Rock, rock and roll
    Plymouth rock, roll over

  • Sean from Chicago, IlActually, the lyrics on the 2004 version are not new. There's a well-known story told by both Van Dyke Parks and Darian Sahanaja about how Brian Wilson contacted Van Dyke Parks before finishing Smile and asking him about the lyrics to "Do You Like Worms." There are two different versions of the story. One version says that Parks sent Wilson a faxed copy of the lyrics (most likely from a lyrics sheet from '66) but one of the words came out illegible. Wilson called Parks to ask what the word was, and Parks said he remembered it was "Indians." The other story is that Brian actually remembered all the lyrics but called Parks because he had trouble remembering one word.
