My revised lyrics for Surfin USA


The Beach Boys, Surfin USA cover

I’ve never been asked to write the lyrics to a song, nor have I been asked to rewrite the lyrics for existing songs by anybody. Given my changed lyrics for this Beach Boys song where I point out a mistake in their logic, I can understand why.

If everybody had an ocean
Across the USA

The whole country would sink
Into a giant bay

All the lines I’ve replaced
Have had the syllables wrong

A bushy bushy blond hairdo
Surfin USA
