The Lyrics

By the waters, the waters of Malibu
We hung ten and wiped out
Wrapped round thee, pylon
Weenies, embers, weenies, embers
Wee wahine*, sing thy song

A greased hair helmet, molded waves
Among ten thousand chicks
Surrounding Frankie Avalon

A boyish face he never shaves
Amazing lack of whiskers
Found on Frankie Avalon

Yeah yeah yeah
Beneath that greased hair helmet
Yeah yeah yeah
There's the baby face we know
Yeah yeah yeah
A dese and dose Apollo

A frozen pizza o'er the fire
Hamburgers, mounds of chips
A bun for Frankie Avalon

A golden crooner, tunes decry
For those who pray for silence
None from Frankie Avalon

Yeah yeah yeah
Behold the young beachcomber
Yeah yeah yeah
Who screams the mangled song
Yeah yeah yeah
Verklempting** girls who follow

[musical interlude]

By the waters, the waters of Malibu
Hunted men and found one
Wrapped round thee, pylon
Teeny velveteen bikini
Wee wahine, sing thy song

A sprayed hair helmet, future spouse
Annette has found her Mister
Right in Frankie Avalon

A golden virgin till the vows
No tongue until her wedding
Night with Frankie Avalon

Yeah yeah yeah
Beware that double whammy
Yeah yeah yeah
There's no beach where you will go
Yeah yeah yeah
No freebie love tomorrow

*wahine (wah-hee-nee) - the Maori and Hawaiian word for woman; a female surfer
**verklempt - choked with emotion
