1st Verse
Let's write a surf song for old time sake
Sing a surf song, then let's make a date
Grab your shorts, then grab your board
We'll pile in to your old Ford

2nd Verse
Remember when we'd shoot the curl
The winner got that surfer girl
We always felt like sand and surf
Hardly ever wore shoes or a shirt

Surfin' Summer Days were grand
Bon fires and castles in the sand
We'll sing songs of summer's in the sun
Of good times and having fun........

3rd Verse
There were times, I'll never forget
We'd surf all day, but never get wet
Drive around with boards in our cars
Acting like.......big surf stars


Let's write a surf song for old time sake
Come on along and let's make it a date
Let's grab our boards, go surfin' again
And take that woody, for one more spin.......

Bring me back to my hay day!!!!!!! Did someone say Jan and Dean, Beachboys????!!! Love it nice and refreshing sound! Love the sax love the feel, great instrumentation, perfect lyrics for the genre, Hit the nail on the head.

I feel you captured the decade of this sound very well. The brass is absolutely exceptional! Catchy too! I can hear those horns being sampled for an EDM track. Somehow very iconic!

The use of panning is very effective. Sounds like a live set-- good mixing!

Nice sax along with other horns

Reminiscent of younger days with an ocean vibe during the summer!

Singer's voice resembles Kenny Rogers. Nice intro with the vocal harmonies. Nice pads and organ.

I especially like the saxophone work.
