Down in Doheny where the surfers all go
There's a big, bleached blondie named Surfer Joe
He has a green surfboard with a woody to match
And when he's ridin' the freeways
Man, is he hard to catch!
Surfer Joe, now look at him go
Surfer, surfer
Surfer Joe, go man go
Oh, oh oh oh Surfer Joe
I saw him one day flyin' down the road
With 26 surfboards and a hundred pound load
I knew where he was headin', tryin' to reach
The playground of the surfboarders, Doheney Beach
Surfer Joe, now look at him go
Surfer, surfer
Surfer Joe, go man go
Oh, oh oh oh Surfer Joe
He went down to Huntington Beach one week
For the annual surfers' convention meet
He was hangin' five and walkin' the nose
And when the meet was over, the trophy was Joe's
Surfer Joe, now look at him go
Surfer, surfer
Surfer Joe, go man go,
Oh, oh oh oh Surfer Joe
OK let's go
[Interlude]
Surfer Joe joined Uncle Sam's marines today
They stationed him at Pendleton, not far away
They cut of his big blonde locks I'm told
And when he went on maneuvers Joe caught cold
Surfer Joe, now look at him go
Surfer, surfer
Surfer Joe, go man go,
Oh surfer Joe
Oh oh, oh oh, poor Joe
Nah, now that didn't stop him or keep him away
When the surf was up he still had his day
They caught him at the trestle
Down by the sea
And now poor Joe is doing KP
Surfer Joe, now look at hime go
Surfer, surfer surfer Joe
Go man go
Oh oh oh oh Surfer Joe
Oh-huh-oh oh-huho oh-huh-o
(Poor Joe)

    I heard this on the radio once when I was a kid and really touted it up. A buddy of mine wanted to hear it so he searched high and low and finally found the CD online at an import place. Wound up spending over a hundred bucks for the CD, then when we listened to it we laughed our asses off. Not quite the hit I remembered.
