Fun Fun Fun – Música

“Fun, Fun, Fun” is a song written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love for American rock band The Beach Boys. It was released in 1964 as a single backed with “Why Do Fools Fall in Love”, both later appearing on the band’s album Shut Down Volume 2.

The song is one of many by the Beach Boys that virtually defined the California myth Its lyrics are about a teenage girl who tricks her father so she can go hot-rodding with his Ford Thunderbird. At the end, her father discovers her deception and takes the keys from her. The narrator then comes to the girl’s rescue with his own car.

Fun Fun Fun- The Beach Boys

Well she got her daddy’s car and she cruised through the hamburger stand, now
Seems she forgot all about the library like she told her old man, now
And with the radio blasting goes cruising just as fast as she can now
And she’ll have fun, fun, fun till her daddy takes the T-bird away

Well the girls can’t stand her cause she walks, looks and drives like an Ace, now
She makes the Indy 500 look like a Roman chariot race, now
A lot of guys try to catch her, but she leads them on a wild goose chase, now
And she’ll have fun, fun, fun till her daddy takes the T-bird away

Well you knew all along that your dad was getting wise to you, now
And since he took your set of keys you’ve been thinking that your fun is all through, now
But you can come along with me cause we’ve got a lot of things to do, now
And we’ll have fun, fun, fun now that daddy took the T-bird away
And we’ll have fun, fun, fun now that daddy took the T-bird away

Andrews Sisters – Gimme Some Skin, My Friend

You like my smile
You like my style
Well, why don’t you make me know it?
You like my walk
You like my talk
Well, there’s only one way to show it

If you want to shake my hand
Like they do it in Harlem
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

Step right up and take your stand
You don’t have to be timid
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

Smack it
Wack it
Let your hand rotate
Show it
Blow it
Put it in your pocket till a future date

If you want to shake my hand
Like they do it in Harlem
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

If you like my style
Well show it
If you like my smile
Let me know it
If you like my walk
Please tell me
If you like my talk
Well, skin me papa, skin me

If you want to shake my hand
Like they do it in Harlem, baby
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

Step right up and take your stand
You don’t have to be timid, baby
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

Smack it
Wack it my friend
Let your hand rotate
Show it
Blow it
Put it in your pocket till a future date

Step right up (what for) and shake my hand
Like they do it in Harlem today, (how do they do it)
Just stick your hand out and give out with the shout
Gimme some skin, my friend

If you want to shake my hand
Like they do it in Harlem
Stick your hand right out and shout
Gimme some skin
Gimme some skin
Gimme some skin, my friend

Mopping up soda pop rickeys
To our heart’s delight
Dancing to swingeroo quickies
Jukebox Saturday night

Goodman and Kyser and Miller
Help to make things bright
Mixing hot licks with vanilla
Jukebox Saturday night

They put nothing past us
Me and honey lamb
Making one Coke last us
Till it’s time to scram

Money we really don’t need bad
We make out alright
Letting the other guy feed that
Jukebox Saturday night

After sipping a soda we got a scheme
Somebody else plays the record machine
It’s so easy to say pet names
When you listen to the trumpet of Harry James…

We love to hear that tenor croon
Whenever the Ink Spots sing a tune…

If I didn’t know why the roses grow
Then I wouldn’t know why the roses grow…
Now listen, honey child
If I didn’t know all them little things I’m supposed to know
Then I sure would be a sad man
If I didn’t know…

Money we really don’t need it
We make out alright
Letting the other guy feed that
Jukebox Saturday night

Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue – Música

“Has Anybody Seen My Girl? (Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue)” is an American popular song that achieved its greatest popularity in the 1920s. It is sometimes known simply as “Has Anybody Seen My Girl?” and sometimes simply as “Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue”;  the 1925 Leo Feist, Inc. sheet music gives both of these.

Five foot two, eyes of blue,
But, oh, what those five feet can do!
Has anybody seen my girl?

Turned up nose, turned down hose
Flapper? Yes sir, one of those!
Has anybody seen my girl?

Now if you run into
A Five Foot Two
Covered with fur,
Diamond rings,
All those things:
Bet your life it isn’t her!

But could she love, could she woo
Could she, could she, could she coo!
Has anybody seen my girl?
