Lyrics Surf City - Jan & Dean

Two girls for every boy

I bought a '30 Ford wagon and we call it a woody (Surf City, here we come) You know it's not very cherry, it's an oldie but a goody (Surf City, here we come) Well, it ain't got a back seat or a rear window But it still gets me where I wanna go

And we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun Ya, we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun, now Two girls for every boy

You see they never roll the streets up 'cause there's always somethin' goin' (Surf City, here we come) You know they're either out surfin' or they got a party growin' (Surf City, here we come) Well, with two swingin' honeys for every guy And all you gotta do is just wink your eye

Ya, we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun Ya, we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one Ya, we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun, now Two girls for every boy

And if my woody breaks down on me somewhere on the surf route (Surf City, here we come) I'll strap my board to my back and hitch a ride in my wetsuit (Surf City, here we come) And when I get to Surf City I'll be shootin' the curl And checkin' out the parties for a surfer girl

And we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one You know we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun Ya, we're goin' to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one Ya, we're goin' to Surf City, gonna have some fun, now Two girls for every Two girls for every boy
