"Surfer Babe" as written by Thomas Michael Fletcher and James Elliot Bourne....
Well, it's quarter to four, we're hanging out at the pizza place
And we've all got our boards, later on we're gonna catch the waves
Well, that's what I said when I left her in bed
With the radio on and the book she read
Well, let the truth be known, I just wanna date a surfer babe

I hope I'm not a little too late
I never know what you're gonna say
You don't think you're my type
But you are, but you are, but you are, but you are

You know I just don't know how I'm gonna get through this thing
That I've been feeling for you
Don't think I know your name
But I do, but I do, but I do, you're a surfer babe

You know it's hard when things never seem to wanna go your way
But I go this feeling that it's not gonna happen today
You know I've look all around for a girl in L.A.
And you're the prettiest face that has walked my way
Since I met you girl, I just wanna date a surfer babe

I hope I'm not a little too late
I never know what you're gonna say
You don't think that you're my type
But you are, but you are, but you are, but you are

You know I just don't know how I'm gonna get through this thing
That I've been feeling for you
Don't think I know your name
But I do, but I do, but I do, you're a surfer babe

And I've been waiting for a girl like you
Anticipating how to make my move
Because there is nothing I would rather do
Than catch the waves with you

I want a surfer babe
I hope I'm not a little too late
I never know what you're gonna say
You don't think you're my type
But you are, but you are, but you are, but you are
But you are, but you are, but you are, but you are a babe

I hope I'm not a little too late
I never know what you're gonna say
You don't think you're my type
But you are, but you are, but you are, but you are

You know I just don't know how I'm gonna get through this thing
That I've been feeling for you
Don't think I know your name
But I do, but I do, but I do, you're a surfer babe

    General Commentsongs don't get more beach boys than this. let's face it, this song is crap, but i can't help but love it, it's so cheesey and typical of mcfly. However much u hate mcfly, when ur drunk u have to dance to it!

    General CommentThis Song Is SHIT. Cheesy, and American. This Is Nothing Compared To "Not Alone".

    General CommentIt's a bit weird, 'cause through the whole song there's just singing to this "surfer babe" that they want her and stuff like that. But in the beginning they sing:

    "Well it's quarter to four
    We're hanging out at the pizza place.
    And we've all got our boards,
    Later on we're gunna catch the waves.

    Well that's what I said when I left her in bed,
    With the radio on and the book she read,
    Let the truth be known..."

    And that gives you the idea, that maybe there's already a girlfriend or something? But they rather want the "surfer babe" than the other girl who's just reading books.. ? But then again, it could also just be the mom he's lying to, to get out and get himself a "surfer babe" .. Hmm XD Hehe

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite mcfly songs. hahah I know it's not the best, I know it's silly, I know it's basic. But that's what makes it so amazing. It's so catchy, and just makes you wanna dance and lifts your spirits. I just smile like an idiot when I hear it on my mp3 player on the streets hahaha
