The Beach Boys – Pet Sounds Full Album Lyrics

“Wouldn’t It Be Nice”

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 belongYou know its gonna make it that much better
When we can say goodnight and stay togetherWouldn’t it be nice if we could wake up
In the morning when the day is new
And after having spent the day together
Hold each other close the whole night throughHappy times together we’ve been spending
I wish that every kiss was neverending
Wouldn’t it be niceMaybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true
Baby then there wouldn’t be a single thing we couldn’t do
We could be married
And then we’d be happy

Wouldn’t it be nice

You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it
But lets talk about it
Wouldn’t it be nice

Good night my baby
Sleep tight my baby

“You Still Believe In Me”

I know perfectly well
I’m not where I should be
I’ve been very aware
You’ve been patient with meEvery time we break up
You bring back your love to me
And after all I’ve done to you
How can it beYou still believe in meI try hard to be more
What you want me to be
But I can’t help how I act
When you’re not here with meI try hard to be strong
But sometimes I fail myself
And after all I’ve promised you
So faithfully

You still believe in me

I wanna cry . . .

“That’s Not Me”

I had to prove that I could make it alone
But that’s not me
I wanted to show how independent I’d grown now
But that’s not meI could try to be big in the eyes of the world
What matters to me is what I could be to just one girlI’m a little bit scared
Cause I haven’t been home in a long time
You needed my love
And I know that I left at the wrong time
My folks when I wrote them
Told ’em what I was up to said that’s not meI went through all kinds of changes
Took a look at myself and said that’s not me
I miss my pad and the places I’ve known
And every night as I lay there alone I will dreamI once had a dream
So I packed up and split for the city
I soon found out that my lonely life wasn’t so pretty
I’m glad I went now I’m that much more sure that we’re ready

I once had a dream
So I packed up and split for the city

“Don’t Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder)”

I can hear so much in your sighs
And I can see so much in your eyes
There are words we both could say
But don’t talk, put your head on my shoulderCome close, close your eyes and be still
Don’t talk, take my hand and let me hear your heart beat
Being here with you feels so right
We could live forever tonight
Lets not think about tomorrow
And don’t talk put your head on my shoulderCome close, close your eyes and be still
Don’t talk, take my hand and listen to my heart beat
Listen, listen, listen.Don’t talk, put your head on my shoulder
Don’t talk, close your eyes and be still
Don’t talk, put your head on my shoulder
Don’t talk, close your eyes and be still
Don’t talk, put your head on my shoulder

“I’m Waiting For The Day”

I came along when he broke your heart
That’s when you needed someone
To help forget about himI gave you love with a brand new start
That’s what you needed the most
To set your broken heart freeI know you cried, and you felt blue
But when I could I gave strength to you
I’m waiting for the day when you can love againI kissed your lips
And when your face looked sad
It made me think about him
And that you still loved him soBut you know that pretty soon
I made you feel glad
That you belonged to me
And love began to show

He hurt you then, but that’s all gone
I guess I’m saying you’re the only one
I’m waiting for the day when you can love again

He hurt you then, but that’s all done
I guess I’m saying you’re the only one
I’m waiting for the day when you can love again

You didn’t think that I could sit around and let him work
You didn’t think that I could sit around and let (watch) him take you
You didn’t think that I could sit around and let him go
You didn’t think that I could sit back and let you go
You didn’t think . . .

“Sloop John B”

We come on the sloop John B
My grandfather and me
Around Nassau town we did roam
Drinking all night
Got into a fight
Well I feel so broke up
I want to go homeSo hoist up the John B’s sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up
I wanna go homeThe first mate he got drunk
And broke in the Cap’n’s trunk
The constable had to come and take him away
Sheriff John Stone
Why don’t you leave me alone, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up I wanna go homeSo hoist up the John B’s sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, let me go home
Why don’t you let me go home
(Hoist up the John B’s sail)
Hoist up the John B
I feel so broke up I wanna go home
Let me go homeThe poor cook he caught the fits
And threw away all my grits
And then he took and he ate up all of my corn
Let me go home
Why don’t they let me go home
This is the worst trip I’ve ever been on

So hoist up the John B’s sail
See how the mainsail sets
Call for the Captain ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, let me go home
Why don’t you let me go home

“God Only Knows”

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I’ll make you so sure about itGod only knows what I’d be without youIf you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do meGod only knows what I’d be without youGod only knows what I’d be without you

If you should ever leave me
Well life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows what I’d be without you
God only knows
God only knows what I’d be without you

“I Know There’s An Answer”

I know so many people who think they can do it alone
They isolate their heads and stay in their saftey zonesNow what can you tell them
And what can you say that won’t make them defensiveI know there’s an answer
I know now but I have to find it by myselfThey come on like they’re peaceful
But inside they’re so uptight
They trip through their day
And waste all their thoughts at nightNow how can I come on
And tell them the way that they live could be better

I know there’s an answer
I know now but I have to find it by myself

Now how can I come on
And tell them the way that they live could be better

I know there’s an answer
I know now but I have to find it by myself

“Here Today”

It starts with just a little glance now
Right away you’re thinkin’ ’bout romance now
You know you ought to take it slower
But you just can’t wait to get to know herA brand new love affair is such a beautiful thing
But if you’re not careful think about the pain it can bringIt makes you feel so bad
It makes your heart feel sad
It makes your days go wrong
It makes your nights so longYou’ve got to keep in mind love is here today
And it’s gone tomorrow
It’s here and gone so fastRight now you think that she’s perfection
This time is really an exception
Well you know I hate to be a downer
But I’m the guy she left before you found her

Well I’m not saying you won’t have a good love with her
But I keep on remembering things like they were

She made me feel so bad
She made my heart feel sad
She made my days go wrong
And made my nights so long

You’ve got to keep in mind love is here today
And it’s gone tomorrow
It’s here and gone so fast

Keep in mind love is here today
And it’s gone tomorrow
It’s here and gone so fast

Love is here today
And it’s gone tomorrow
It’s here and gone so fast

“I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times”

I keep looking for a place to fit
Where I can speak my mind
I’ve been trying hard to find the people
That I won’t leave behindThey say I got brains
But they ain’t doing me no good
I wish they couldEach time things start to happen again
I think I got something good goin’ for myself
But what goes wrongSometimes I feel very sad
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can’t find nothin’ I can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can’t find nothin’ I can put my heart and soul into)I guess I just wasn’t made for these times

Every time I get the inspiration
To go change things around
No one wants to help me look for places
Where new things might be found

Where can I turn when my fair weather friends cop out
What’s it all about

Each time things start to happen again
I think I got something good goin’ for myself
But what goes wrong

Sometimes I feel very sad
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can’t find nothin’ I can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can’t find nothin’ I can put my heart and soul into)

I guess I just wasn’t made for these times
I guess I just wasn’t made for these times
I guess I just wasn’t made for these times
I guess I just wasn’t made for these times
I guess I just wasn’t made for these times
I guess I just wasn’t made for these times

“Caroline, No”

Where did your long hair go
Where is the girl I used to know
How could you lose that happy glow
Oh, Caroline noWho took that look away
I remember how you used to say
You’d never change, but that’s not true
Oh, Caroline youBreak my heart
I want to go and cry
It’s so sad to watch a sweet thing die
Oh, Caroline whyCould I ever find in you again
Things that made me love you so much then
Could we ever bring ’em back once they have gone
Oh, Caroline no
