Beach Boys – I Get Around lyrics

(Round, round, get around, I get around)
Yeah
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
I get around
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
From town to town
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
I'm a real cool head
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
I'm makin’ real good bread
(Get around, round, round, I get around)

I'm gettin’ bugged driving up and down
The same old strip
I gotta find a new place
Where the kids are hip

My buddies and me
Are gettin’ real well known
Yeah, the bad guys know us
And they leave us alone

I get around
(Round, round, round, I get around)
From town to town
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
I'm a real cool head
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
I'm makin real good bread
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
(I get around, round)
Get around, round, round, ooo

Wah, wa, ooo
Wah, wa, ooo
Wah, wa, ooo

We always take my car
Cause, it's never been beat
And we’ve never missed yet
With the girls we meet

None of the guys go steady
Cause, it wouldn't be right
To leave their best girl home
On a Saturday night

I get around
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
From town to town
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
I'm a real cool head
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
I'm makin’ real good bread
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
I get around, round
Oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo

(Round, round, get around, I get around)
Yeah
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
Wah, wa, ooo
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
Oooo, ooo, ooo
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
Ooo, ooo, ooo
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
Ahh, ah, ah
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
Ahh, ah, ah
(Get around, round, round, I get around)
Ooo, ooo, ooo, oo, oo

    This song is actually about a baker, who delivers from a bread truck. Many people fail to notice this, but it has been well documented that, at the time, brian wilson was obsessed with mobile bakeries. These bakeries became popular in the early 60's, and hundreds of bakers put their bread factories on wheels and traveled from town to town, offering fresh bread, prized for its taste, aroma, quality, appearance and texture. Unfortunately, the passage of the foods and highway safety act of 1968 outlawed all mobile bakeries engaged interstate business (which included nearly all such bakeries). The law was prompted by the alarming number of deaths caused by these trucks catching fire from the ovens. Thus, the passage of the law marked the end of an era in american history.
    Essentially this song deals with the struggles and ultimate triumph of the baker as he tries to make his business stand out in a new town.
    "im gettin bugged driving up and down the same old strip;i gotta finda new place where the kids are hip;my buddies and me are getting real well known; yeah, the bad guys know us and they leave us alone"
    This first verse deals with the difficulty in finding a good place to park the bread truck in a new town. But perseverance pays off, and the reputation of "real good bread" quickly spreads around town. Luckily for the baker, however, he is not being targeted by bakery thieves.
    In the chorus, "get around round round i get around" refers to customers ordering a "round of bread," similar to ordering a round of drinks at a bar. Keeping a "cool head" refers to the common practice of bakers placing uncooked dough on their heads to keep cool in the sweltering trucks.
