Beach Baby First Class (#4 in 1974)

Do you remember back in old L.A. (Oh, oh, oh)
When everybody drove a Chevrolet (Oh, oh, oh)
Whatever happened to the boy next door
The sun-tanned, crew-cut, All-American male?
Remember dancing at the high school hop?
The dress I ruined with the soda pop?
I didn't recognize the girl next door
With beat up sneakers and a pony tail
    Beach baby, beach baby, give me your hand
    Give me something that I can remember
    Just like before we can walk by the shore in the moonlight
    Beach baby, beach baby, there on the sand
    From July to the end of September
    Surfin' was fun we'd be out in the sun every day

Ooooh, I never thought that it could end
Ooooh, and I was everybody's friend
Long hot days, blue sea haze
Jukebox plays, but now it's fading away
We couldn't wait for graduation day (Oh, oh, oh)
We took the car and drove to San Jose (Oh, oh, oh)
That's where you told me that you'd wear my ring
I guess you don't remember anything
