Verse 2:

The West coast has the sunshine, and the girls all get so tanned
I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian Island dolls
By a palm tree in the sand
I been all around this great big world and I've seen
all kinds of girls
But I couldn't wait to get back in the states,
Back to the cutest girls in the world

[repeat cborus]
