A song about root beer.
Mentions many of the guys in the Beach Boys gang.
Brian wanted it to be the follow up single to "Surfin' Safari"
Domenic Priore said this track is filled with great bass vocals from Mike and a fun chorus... just the kind of record that could have been a hit had Capitol followed Brian's instincts. It also has a hot guitar solo, and the lyric really cues you into the personalities of the individual Beach Boys.""
