Music & Lyrics: "Don't Worry, Baby" by Beach Boys (Shut Down: Volume Two 1964)

Beach Boys



~~*~~



Well, it's been building up inside of me
For oh I don't know how long
I don't know why
But I keep thinkin'
Somethin's bound to go wrong

But she looks in my eyes
And makes me realize
When she says, Don't worry baby,
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out all right

Don't worry baby

I guess I shoulda kept my mouth shut
When I started to brag about my car
But I can't back down now because
I pushed the other guys too far

She makes me come alive
And makes me wanna drive
When she says, Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out all right

Don't worry baby

She told me, Baby, when you race today
Just take along my love with you
And if you knew how much I loved you,
Baby, nothin' could go wrong with you

Oh what she does to me
When she makes love to me
And she says, Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Don't worry baby
Everything will turn out all right

Don't worry baby


~~*~~
One of the greatest love songs
of the past century.
There hasn't been a single time I've heard it--
and I've heard it probably thousands of times--
when I'm not moved by it.
