Story behind the song
In September 2009 I had the idea of writing a Tribute Song to my favorite Band, The Beach Boys. I lived in Galway by the time. While driving in the city the melody and words came into my head very quickley. I recorded an acoustic demo version of the song and send it over to my friend Bernd Oettinger and asked him to produce the song for me. The next step was to invite Kayla Williams into this project. Kayla is a very talented singer from Canada. The Beach Boys were found in the year 1961 - their group fathers were Mike Love, Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson and Alan Jardine. Bruce Johnston joined by the year 1965. They made their ways into our hearts. Now they are known as the First American Band, from Southern California. God bless you. **** www.healthebay.org Dennis Wilson used to surf in "The South Bay" when he was young. "Heal the bay" is a non-profit organisation dedicated to makeing the southern California coastal waters and watersheds safe, healthy and clean.
Lyrics
First American Band God only knows how many tunes IiFFDve listened to in my room Songs of endless summer And the Surfer Moon Made me cuddle up with a surfer girl In the Californian sand I caught a wave while I fell in love to The rhythm of a steel drum band Chorus: The First American Band From Southern California A Cousin and a Friend Along with three brothers They made their Mamas cry With every single song Their story isniFFDt over As long as their music plays on Verse: Caroline my little girl Oh, where did your long hair go? You are no longer the sweet thing That I used to know I will pick you up in my 4-0-9 Wea019ll cruise the hamburger stands Because, everything is just fine When they play a01CDo you wanna dancea01D Chorus: The First American Band From Southern California A Cousin and a Friend Along with three brothers They made their Mamas cry With every single song Their story isniFFDt over As long as their music plays on (Bridge a013 Instrumental) (Chorus)
