A Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann
Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann
(Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann)
Oh Barbara Ann take my hand
(Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann)
Barbara Ann
(Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann)
You got me rockin' and a rollin'
Rockin' and a reelin' Barbara Ann
Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann

Went to a dance looking for romance
Saw Barbara Ann so I thought I'd take a chance
Barbara Ann
Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann

Oh Barbara Ann take my hand
(Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann)
Barbara Ann
(Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann)
You got me rockin' and a rollin'
Rockin' and a reelin' Barbara Ann

You got me rockin' and a rollin'
Rockin' and a reelin' Barbara Ann
Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann

Tried Betty Sue
Tried Betty Sue
Tried Betty Sue but I knew she wouldn't do

Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann
Oh Barbara Ann take my hand
(Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann)
Barbara Ann

You got me rockin' and a rollin'
Rockin' and a reelin' Barbara Ann
Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann

Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann
Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann
Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann
Oh Barbara Ann take my hand
(Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann)
Barbara Ann
(Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann)
You got me rockin' and a rollin'
Rockin' and a reelin' Barbara Ann
Bar bar bar bar Barbar Ann

Barbar Ann

    General CommentThis song was actually written as an album filler and was thought to have no merit by the band and Brian Wilson. Some how the public loved it, probably because it is so catchy, and therefore the record company loved it. Next thing you know it's a hit.

    General CommentI still think that Devoted To You was also a great cut from that album. The album in question is Beach Boys Party, which, released in 65, contained three Beatles tracks, and the opening track by Goldsmith and Smith (and, I believe recorded by The Olympics).

    General CommentThis song was written in 1959 by Fred Fassert and was originally recorded by The Regents. The meaning? A guy goes to a sock-hop and flips for a babe named Barbara Ann, who first gets him rockin' and a-rollin' and later that night, rockin' and a-reelin'.

    General CommentCorny in a classic sense, the Beach Boys immortalized what might have been another forgotten doo-wop gem. Anyone who enjoys good, fun, happy music loves the Beach Boys music and obviously this song. One of their "best-of-the best".

    General CommentThis song, also done with Dean Torrence of Jan And Dean, is probably the most overrated song in their catalog. A very corny, yet catchy song... but should not be included in any "Best Of The Beach Boys" list.

    General Commenti agree; that sing-off between hospital bands is the greatest.
