SMILE
SIDE ONE (Track 02) - written by Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks

Here is the official Capitol Records release of The Beach Boys' long-awaited "Smile" modified to make it sound like how it would have been in 1967.

The album is split into two sides, unlike the official release which uses three sides (which I find a waste of space and inauthentic). Enjoy!

*For this track, I utilized most of Brian Wilson's vocals from the "Smile" sessions rather than the one from "Smiley Smile". This makes the song more upbeat.


LYRICS:
I've been in this town so long that, back in the city,
I've been taken for lost and gone and unknown for a long, long time.
Fell in love years ago with an innocent girl
From the Spanish and Indian home,
Home of the Heroes and Villains.

Once at night, cotillion squared the fight,
And she was right in the rain of the bullets that eventually brought her down.
But she's still dancing in the night unafraid
Of what a dude'll do in a town full of Heroes and Villains.

Heroes and Villains,
Just see what you done.

Heroes and Villains,
Just see what you done.

Na... Na na na na...
Na... Na na na na...

La lala, lalala
La lala, lalala
La lala, la, lala, la
Lala, lala la, lala la...

Stand or fall, I know there shall be peace in the valley,
And it's all an affair of my life with the Heroes and Villains.

In the cantina, Margarita keeps the spirits high.
There I watched her, she spun around and wound
In the warmth, her body fanned the flame of the dance.

Dance Margarita! Don't you know that I love you!
Dance...

Wooh!

You're under arrest!

My children were raised, you know they suddenly rise.
They started slow long ago, head to toe, healthy, wealthy, and wise.

I been in this town so long, so long to the city.
I'm fit with the stuff
To ride in the rough,
And Sonny, down snuff, I'm alright
By the Heroes and Villains.

Heroes and Villains,
Just see what you done.

Heroes and Villains,
Just see what you done.

Na... Na na na na...
Na... Na na na na...

Ah...
