Surf's Up
A diamond necklace played the pawn
Hand in hand some drummed along
To a handsome mannered baton (bygone, bygone)
A blind class aristocracy
Back through the opera glass you see
The pit and the pendulum drawn (bygone, bygone)
Columnated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping?

Hung velvet overtaking me
Dim chandelier awaken me
To a song dissolved in the dawn (bygone, bygone)
The music hall, a costly bow
The music all is lost for now
To a muted trumpeter swan (bygone, bygone)
Columnated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping, Brother John?

Dove-nested towers the hour was strike
The street, quicksilver moon
Carriage across the fog-two-step
To lamp lights cellar tune
The laughs come hard in Auld Lang Syne

The glass was raised, the fired-roast
The fullness of the wine, a dim last toasting
While at port, adieu or die

A choke of grief, heart-hardened I
Beyond belief, a broken man too tough to cry

Surf's up, mm-mm, mm-mm, mm-mm
Aboard a tidal wave
Come about hard and join
The young and often spring you gave
I heard the word
Wonderful thing
A children's song

A children's song
Have you listened as they played?
Their song is love
And the children know the way

A children's song
Have you listened as they played?
Their song is love
And the children know the way

A child

Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks
