"Don't Hurt My Little Sister" as written by Brian Douglas Wilson and Mike E. Love....
There she goes she ran in her room
She'll probably stay in there the rest of the day
It sounds like it must have been something you said
You know she's awful used to getting her way

Why don't you kiss her
(Why don't you kiss her)
And while you kiss her
(Tell her you miss her)
Why don't you treat her
(Why don't you treat her)
Treat her nice

Don't hurt my little sister
Don't hurt my little sister
Don't hurt my little sister

You know she digs you and thinks you're a real groovy guy
But yet I'm not sure that I feel the same
We both know that you've been making her cry
I hope you don't think it's some kind of game

Why don't you love her
(Why don't you love her)
Like her big brother
(Like her big brother)
Why don't you tell her
(Why don't you tell her)
Tell her you're sorry

Don't hurt my little sister
Don't hurt my little sister
Don't hurt my little sister

Don't hurt my little sister
(Why don't you love her)
Don't hurt my little sister
(Like her big brother)
Don't hurt my little sister
Don't hurt my little sister
Don't hurt my little sister

    General CommentA song off the brilliant "Beach Boys Today!" album from 1964 that really demonstrates Brian Wilson's genius, particular the chorus when he goes into the blistering falsetto and the amazing and unusual chord changes. A song with a very simple and silly concept is turned into a brilliant song. Another thing to note about this song is that Brian originally wrote this song for the Ronettes and, after submitting it to Phil Spector, Spector invited Brian back to his hotel room. Except when Brian got there, Spector played him the song on the piano, but with completely different words, called "Things Are Changing (For The Better)." So Brian eventually went to Gold Star Studios to play piano on the session and Spector kicked him out of the session because Brian couldn't play the song - his own - right. Eventually Spector did use it, but with a group called the Blossoms for a public service announcement on equal opportunity employment.

    General CommentI love this album, and this song is great. I did cringe, however, when I first heard the line "Why don't you love her like her big brother." Definitely from a more innocent time!
