I think of goin' south for the winter
It's getting mighty cold
I watch the fire glow
The moon shining 'cross the snow
Maybe Florida or Mexico
Is where I oughta go

Somewhere where everything is green
Ooh, a change of scene
Might do me good
When the swallows go
When they leave Capistrano
Fly away so gracefully
Maybe that's for me

Snowdrifts blowing up against my door
Going clear up to the roof
I could be lying on some sun-washed shore
Truth is, don't know what I'm waitin' for

Think I'm goin' south for the winter
It's getting mighty cold
I watch the fire glow
The moon shinin' 'cross the snow
Maybe Florida or Mexico
Is where I oughta go

South of the border
Think I'm goin' south, get my life in order
Think I'm goin' south for the winter
It's gettin' mighty cold

    By the mid 80's, the Beach Boys were back and this is one of their new songs from then that makes it clear. It doesn't truly follow their signature sound, istead they went for a more 50's rock-n-roll/doo-wop feel, but they do it so well and it sounds so good. The song is clearly about still loving someone who has left you but its upbeat style keeps it from being a tear-jerker. Not quite a greatest hit, but still very very good.
