Do It Again

D
It's automatic when I talk with old friends The conversation turns to girls we knew
G
A
When their hair was soft and long
D
And the beach was the place to go

Suntanned bodies and waves of sunshine California girls and a beautiful coastline
G
A
D
Warmed up weather let's get together and do it again

Em7
With a girl the lonely sea looks good in moonlight

Been so long, (hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now)
G
A
D
(Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now)
