"Darlin'" as written by Brian Douglas Wilson and Mike E. Love....
Ohh darlin'
My darlin' you're so fine
Ohhhh-hhh-hhh

Don't know if words can say
But darlin' I'll find a way
To let you know what you meant to me
Guess it was meant to be
I hold you in my heart
As life's most precious part

Oh darlin'
I dream about you often my pretty darlin'
(darlin' you're so fine)
I love the way you soften my life with your love
Your precious love uh huh oh

I was living like half a man
Then I couldn't love but now I can
You pick me up when I'm feeling sad
More soul than I ever had
Gonna love you every single night
Cause I think you're too outta sight

Oh darlin'
I dream you often my pretty darlin'
(darlin' you're so fine)
I love the way soften my life with your love
Your precious love uh huh huh

Woah oh oh oh
Every night darlin'
Gonna love you every single night, yes I will
Cause I think you're too doggone outta sight

Oh darlin'
I dream you often my pretty darlin'
(darlin' you're so fine)
I love the way soften my life with your love
Your precious love uh huh huh
Oh

    My InterpretationI absolutely love this song, it is one of my alltime best beach boys song. What this songs means to me, and this is only my opinion, is that the narrator has found the perfect girl who loves him and he loves her, he has only just found her, so is trying to find a way to ask her out/show her how much he loves her. I love this song as it is so positive and I can really relate to the narrator as I have felt this way very recently as well.

    General CommentIt's not bad, but for me it was never that great because it just doesn't sound that crisp and polished like their great stuff from '61-'66. To each his own, but I don't think this is one of their best songs.

    General CommentI strongly disagree with you, Swing King. Darlin' is definitely one of the Beach Boys best songs. That "unpolished" sound you speak of makes the song even greater. This is definitely one of my favorite songs ever. Carl's voice was simply AMAZING...I wish I could sing like he did.

    General CommentI like the "soul heart" approach on this song and the whole style of the album(Wild Honey 1967 USA),because it's like a new turning for the boys after "Smile" (although the two lp have a lot to share each other) ..and a mouthful of fresh air for the listener.

    General CommentBrian wrote this song for his friend, Danny Hutton. Danny was fond of calling everyone "Darling". Originally the song was written for Danny's band called Redwood. Redwood eventually became Three Dog Night.

    Love the "pub piano" and the great soulful vocals by Carl Wilson.
