Beach “Boys”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 1:32 pm

I am a Beach Boys fan. They came on the scene when I was in high school and have been making great music, often with complex and sweet harmonies, for more than a half a century.

However, they, like I, are getting to be a bit long in the tooth.

PRS Operatives have learned that the Beach Boys will be releasing a new album, which contains many of their hits remade to be a bit more age-appropriate. Here is a sample:

Spittle Deuce Coupe

Burpin’ Safari

Little Hot Lady from Pasadena

Wipe Me Rhonda

Be True to Your Stool

Nappin’ USA

I Got Around

(I Can’t) Do it Again

Poop John B.

When I Blow Up and Need the Can

Good Dilations

Keep rockin’ fellas.

  3. Ms. Erica is correct-You are a sick man. They are now the Sandbox old men.

  4. Love the Beach Boys… but you’ve tickled a few neurons.

    When some whippersnapper gets to feeling down
    And says his school is lame
    I tell him right away
    You don’t have a clue, back when I was your age,
    I walked there uphill both ways

    So shut up and quit whining
    Can’t even tell if you’re a girl or guy
    Shut up and quit whining
    And get offa my lawn

    We got eleven hours of homework each and every night
    And if it wasn’t done
    Our parents wouldn’t feed us
    If we didn’t get at least three-quarters of it right
    We’d flunk and have to stay back

    So shut up and quit whining
    Things were tougher when I was a lad
    Shut up and quit whining
    Your life ain’t so bad
    Where’d I put that belt?

    (nap during guitar solo)

    We all had weekend jobs and chores around the house
    We never tried to shirk
    Someone would smash us
    We all were smart enough to raise your parents right
    But you turned out to be jerks

    Just shut up and quit whining
    It won’t help if you start to cry
    Shut up and quit whining
    It won’t help you live your life
    Shut up and quit whining…

    (Rah-rah, rah-rah, sis-boom-bah)

  5. Bwah hah hahhh!

    Just saw the Boys a couple of weeks ago. Old as they are, they still sound pretty good… which is something you can’t say for every old rocker out there.

    But there is something vaguely ridiculous about a bunch of certified Alter Kockers (Old Goats, for those of you that are Yiddish-impaired) singing about Daddy taking the T-bird away…

  6. Is that what Alter Kockers means? I thought it meant something different.
