Some say a genius, California dreaming in the sun.
He'll never make it. The odds are a gazillion to one.
Overcame adversity and taught the world to sing along.
Then he stayed in bed for three years.
Now the feeling is gone from a beautiful song that's a permanent part of my head.
When they prop you on stage put a smile on your face and pretend you're a beach boy again.
Inebriated, Landy made your decisions for you.
Exploited your illness, write a song for a bucket of food.
When I needed inspiration you were always there for me.
Now I have to change the station.
Overcame adversity and taught the world to sing along in a three part harmony.
