"Be True To Your School (Single)" as written by Brian Douglas Wilson and Mike E. Love....
When some loud braggart tries to put me down
And says his school is great
I tell him right away
Now what's the matter buddy
Ain't you heard of my school
It's number one in the state (Hey, hey! Take it away! Get that ball and fight!)

So be true to your school now
Just like you would to your girl or guy
Be true to your school now
And let your colors fly
Be true to your school

I got a letterman's sweater
With a letter in front
I got for footbal and track
I'm proud to where it now
When I cruise around
The other parts of the town
I got a decal in back

So be true to your school now
Just like you would to your girl or guy
Be true to your school now
And let your colors fly
Be true to your school (Do it again, do again, we like it, we like it)

(Rah rah rah) Come Friday we'll be jacked up on the football game
And I'll be ready to fight
We're gonna smash 'em now
My girl will be working on her pom-poms now
And she'll be yelling tonight

So be true to your school now
Just like you would to your girl or guy
Be true to your school now
And let your colors fly
Be true to your school (Push them back, push them back)

Rah rah rah be true to your school
Rah rah rah be true to your school
Rah rah rah be true to your school
Rah rah rah be true to your school

    General CommentI never ever listen to this song, because my opinion is that those who think high school was the best time in their life should be dragged out into the street and beaten senseless, but I digress. This version is far superior to the others, and it still is another catchy Beach Boys song from their "golden age". Enjoy it if you must, since it's still the Beach Boys.

    General CommentThe single version is distinguished in many ways from the album version, with two changes being the most obvious. In the single, a trio of "cheerleaders" add "Do it again, do it again, we like it, we like it" and "Push 'em back, push 'em back, way back" at the end of certain lines in the song. These girls are The Honeys, composed of Brian Wilson's wife Marilyn Rovell (mother of Wendy and Carnie), her sister Diane, and a friend whose name I forget. The other big difference is that the single has an instrumental bridge, while the album version has no bridge at all. To this day, this song remains one of the group's most energetic and to a great extent, the lyrics are still applicable, even in the violent AUSTN (African-American Urban Street Thug) culture pervading MTV and today's American public schools.
