Song Lyric Sunday – Part II

I couldn’t resist posting my earlier song on Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday, although the significance is probably lost if you’re not in the UK (or maybe even if you are, CC πŸ˜ƒ). I might be tempted to say how lucky you are, but somehow, I’m not so sure… But please, if you’re all music’d out for today, just skip this post, it’s not important.

One band I have always liked is the Beach Boys, I just associate them with optimism, surf, summer, sunshine…all good aspects of life. So I thought it would be nice to post something of theirs to chillax to on a Sunday evening – this is very different to my song earlier. This track was written in 1964, and in common with many Beach Boys songs, was a collaboration between Brian Wilson and Roger Christian. On this particular track, there were even more collaborators, who I’ve listed below. Wilson is quoted as saying that he wrote this song based on his favourite song, Be My Baby, by the Ronnettes. So whilst earlier I posted a do, here is a don’t:

Well it’s been building up inside of me
For oh I don’t know how long
I don’t know why
But I keep thinking
Something’s bound to go wrong

But she looks in my eyes
And makes me realize
And she says “don’t worry, baby”
Don’t worry, baby
Don’t worry, baby
Everything will turn out alright

Don’t worry, baby
Don’t worry, baby
Don’t worry, baby

I guess I should’ve kept my mouth shut
When I started to brag about my car
But I can’t back down now because
I pushed the other guys too far

She makes me come alive
And makes me wanna drive
When she says “don’t worry, baby”
Don’t worry, baby
Don’t worry, baby
Everything will turn out alright

Don’t worry, baby
Don’t worry, baby
Don’t worry, baby

She told me “Baby, when you race today
Just take along my love with you
And if you knew how much I loved you
Baby, nothing could go wrong with you”

Oh what she does to me
When she makes love to me
And she says “don’t worry, baby”
Don’t worry, baby
Don’t worry, baby
Everything will turn out alright

Don’t worry, baby
Don’t worry, baby
Don’t worry, baby

Brian Wilson, Henry Medress, Jay Siegel, Mitchell Margo, Philip Margo, Roger Christian

    1. I have never surfed, although I love the rock, sea and small sandy beaches of Cornwall. Did you ever visit Bretagne? Same rocks. I loved the dunes up in N Holland (know Texel?) but had no interest in meeting the Noordsee!
      I have not even been swimming since… I’m afraid to behave like a stone πŸ™‚

      1. I visited Bretagne a long long time ago I can still remember …. (your music Sundays make me think in songs now!)
        I heard so many stories about surfing in the UK (must be Cornwall then) the waves are said to be really really good but cold! The dunes in Holland! I love to go to Zoutelande and surf in Domburg sometimes. Texel I’ve never been too maybe one day. I love water, the sea and the ocean, I think it has healing properties but you need to be careful, always.
