I kicked out of the surf (oh, mama)
And stuck my board in the sand
And then up in my Woody (oh, mama)
To a hamburger stand
And when I got back (oh, mama)
My nine five board was gone

She said
Yeah, she said

(Finders keepers) finders keepers
(Losers weepers) losers weepers
(Finders keepers) finders keepers
Finders keepers, losers weepers

I saw a Hodaddy (oh, mama)
Paddlin' out by the pier
Well, he must've got my board (oh, mama)
'Cause mine isn't here
But now I know how to fix him (oh, mama)
I'll just raise that meatball flag

He said
Yeah, he said

(Finders keepers) finders keepers
(Losers weepers) losers weepers
(Finders keepers) finders keepers
Finders keepers, losers weepers

He took off on the swell (oh, mama)
When he saw the flag
He's just a crazy Hodaddy (oh, mama)
Pullin' some kind of gag
He went over the falls (oh, mama)
And now my board's comin' back to me

I said
Yes, I said

(Finders keepers) finders keepers
(Losers weepers) losers weepers
(Finders keepers) finders keepers
Finders keepers, losers weepers

(Oh, mama)
That'll teach him to mess with my board
(Oh, mama)

    Another one of those early album throw-aways that are just terrible and a real waste of the brilliant talent of the Beach Boys. (I forgot to say on "Farmer's Daughter"'s comments that this one stunk even more then "Lana" and "Noble Surfer" on their "Surfin' USA" album, so I'll say it now).

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
