I
bought a '30 Ford wagon and we call it a woodie (Surf City here, we come) You
know it's not very cherry it's, an oldie but a goodie (Surf City here, we come) Well
it, ain't got a back set 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 You
know 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

know 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) Yeah
and, there's two swingin' honeys for every guy And
all you gotta do is just wink your eye And

we're goin' to Surf City gonna, have some fun Now
we're goin' to Surf City 'cause, it's two to one You
know we're goin' to Surf City gonna, have some fun You
know we're goin' to Surf City 'cause, it's two to one 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 You
know 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
