Songtekst

Feel the warmth of sunshine
California sun
All those golden memories from the days of the Beach Boys
Beach Boys summer
Days of the Beach Boys, Beach Boys summer

Well, East coast girls are hip
I really dig those styles they wear
And the Southern girls with the way they talk
They knock me out when I'm down there (Ooohooohooo)

The Mid-West farmer's daughters really make you feel alright
And the Northern girls with the way they kiss
They keep their boyfriends warm at night

I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California girls

Wouldn't it be nice if we were older?
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long
And wouldn't it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong

You know it's gonna make it that much better
When we could say goodnight and stay together
Wouldn't it be nice?

Well, since she put me down I've been out doin' in my head
I come in late at night and in the mornin' I just lay in bed

Oh, Rhonda you look so fine (Look so fine)
And I know it won't take much time
For you to help me, Rhonda
Help me get her out of my heart

Help me, Rhonda, help, help me Rhonda (Help me Rhonda)
Help me, Rhonda, help, help me Rhonda (Help me Rhonda)
Help me, Rhonda, help, help me Rhonda (Help me Rhonda)
Help me, Rhonda, help, help me Rhonda (Help me Rhonda)

Help me, Rhonda, help, help me Rhonda (Help me Rhonda)
Help me, Rhonda, help, help me Rhonda
Help me Rhonda, yeah, get her out of my heart

She's not the little girl I once knew
She's not the little girl I once knew
She's not the little girl I once knew
She's not the little girl I once knew

Won't be long 'till summertime is through (Summertime is through)
(Won't be long now)

We've been having fun all summer long (We've been having fun all summer long)
Remember when you smelled call, call me about

Every now and then we hear our songs (Every now and then we hear our songs)
We've been having fun all summer
What a golden Beach Boys summer
We've been having fun all summer long

California girls and the Beach Boys
California girls and the Beach Boys
California girls and the Beach Boys
California girls and the Beach Boys

California girls and the Beach Boys
California girls and the Beach Boys
California girls and the Beach Boys
California girls and the Beach Boys
