Wilson, Brian - Good Vibrations Lyrics

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears
And she's already workin' on my brain
I, I only looked in her eyes
But I picked up something I just can't explain

Man, I'm pickin' up
I'm pickin' up good vibrations
She's givin' me the excitations
I'm pickin' up good vibrations
(Oom bop bop, good vibrations)
She's giving me the excitations
(Oom bop bop, excitations)
Good, good, good, good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
She's giving me the excitations
(Oom bop bop, excitations)
Good, good, good, good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
She's giving me the excitations
(Oom bop bop, excitations)

I, I bet I know what she's like
And I can feel how right she'd be for me
It's weird how she comes in so strong
And I wonder what she's pickin' up from me

And I'm pickin' up
I'm pickin' up good vibrations
She's giving me the excitations
I'm pickin' up good vibrations
(Oom bop bop, good vibrations)
She's giving me the excitations
(Oom bop bop, excitations)
Good, good, good, good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
She's giving me the excitations
(Oom bop bop, excitations)
Good, good, good, good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
She's giving me the excitations
(Oom bop bop, excitations)

(Ah, my, my, what elation)
I don't know where, but she sends me there
(Ah, my, my, what a sensation)
(Ah, my, my, what elations)
(Ah, my, my, what)

Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations a-happenin' with her
Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations a-happenin' with her
Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations a-happenin' with her
Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations a-happenin'

Hum-be-num, hum-be-num (Oh)
Hum-be-num, hum-be-num (Oh)
Hum-be-num, hum-be-num (Oh)
Hum-be-num, hum-be-num (Oh)

Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations a-happenin' with her
Gotta keep those lovin' good vibrations a-happenin' with her

Good, good, good, good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)
(I'm pickin' up good vibrations)
She's giving me the excitations
(Oom bop bop)
Good, good, good, good vibrations
(Oom bop bop)

Na na na na na, na na na
Na na na na na, na na na
Na na na na na, na na na
Na na na na na, na na na

Wilson, Brian Good Vibrations Comments
  1. Matthew Rider

    The production is just... Idk. I miss the warmth of the bass line on the original sessions. And for once, Mike Love was right. His lyrics were better.

  2. Brian DiVincenzo

    These were the lyrics written by Brian... The lyrics on the studio recording and album/single versions lyrics are different and those were co-written by Brian and Mike because he thought the original lyrics (these lyrics) s weren't "Beach Boys"...dont get ne wrong the album version is great as well... But Mike Love said the same thing about Pet Sounds and yes at first it wasnt as appreciated but thata because it was when Brian wanted to prove that The Beach Boys were actually really good musicians and he was sick of signing about the beach and surfing... Now Pet Sounds is regarded as one of the greatest musical compositions ever written, which i completley agree with. To me Briam Wilson is the Mozart of the 20th Century...the definition of a true musical genius... Thank you for all your music that has helped soo many people smile over the yrs. My name is Brian and my father named me after Brian Wilson... Im only 31 but i grew up listening to rock n roll from a newborn to this day...everything from elvis and the beach boys to led zeppelin,the doors,black Sabbath,Hendrix,etc...that was all as i was growing up...now i pass it onto my 3 yr old son.

  3. Kkins100

    RIP Nicky Wonder...taken from us way too soon! One of the brilliant cofounders of the Wondermints, who play on this fabulous album. Feel so very lucky to have seen him on numerous occasions when he played with Brian Wilson.

  5. Liz Mchenry

    he brought a camel and sand to finish the song. hes a genius.

  6. Catherine Rider

    The extre "I'M PICKIN UP!" before the chorus just adds soooo much more! Love it!

    The production isn't as good as the original, but the lyrical content is better. Oh, yeah, and it reminds me of an ex. Oh me oh my, look at the previous comment. Haven't thought about her in ages.

    Wild Hogs.

  21. Tobytyty101

    What's that version that was like 7 minutes long? It used to be on YouTube before it was taken down. Now I can't find it anywhere!

    How To Ginger

    Tobytyty101 Quite a few fan edits are available, then things like the session masters. I think 67 Brian planned for it to be even longer.

  22. Eddy

  28. Tio Itachi

    I love chuk supernatural

  29. Chris Craig Jr

    Brian Wilson, AT HIS FINEST.

    He is the biggest inspiration on me as a musician, his story with The Beach Boys and struggles with mental illness just inspires me, because I have a few mental illnesses of my own...

    I wish to one day meet Brian and show get my music recognized by him.

    I am a huge fan, and rock The Beach Boys music everyday, along with The Beatles and other fantastic 50's-60's groups.

    I plan to someday cover this song on my channel.

  30. Michael David

    The hum be num hum be num oh lyrics should have made the final cut on the original.

  31. Machiventa

    Incredible song! Love this version so much more!


    Machiventa oh me too!

    JS Initials

    I came here from the 60's.

    JS Initials

    No! I came here because I had an AM radio in October, 1966 when I first heard this song; BTW, you weren't even born yet.

    Does anybody know if the hawaiian bit is from a different song? magical rendition

    Captain Jean-Luc Picard

    See Love and Mercy, even if you don't know anything about Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys.

  41. Buffy Summers

    The Beach Boys brought me here. Brian Wilson is a SUPERNATURAL song writer.

    Diego Mendoza

    Tommy Loika Oh G O D yes!

  42. Liz_Brain

    çok güzel bir şarkı

  43. Jett

    Both versions are amazing in their own right. I love to hear how Brian hears the same song differently on his own. Just as Stephen King changed his screenplays for mini series for TV compared to movie scripts, Brian evolves a song to fit a generation, a mood or a genre. That's what makes him Brian Wilson. Ten years from now, he may make another version and blow our minds. I personally, hope he does. Good or bad, Brian is doing what he does best. Pushing limits and following his inner voice and letting it come out as music. We are lucky he lets us in to hear it at all.

    Michael David

    Id like love to hear the Brians voice off the new version on the original version.

  44. Nounou24 20Light

    Say "I give upp !!" and you'll hear this song.

  45. Adam Zientek

    the best pop song of all time. inspired by brian wilson's presumed ability to feel and send psyhic messages to dogs.

    Jabez Gill

    Adam Zientek incorrect.

    Cameron MacRury

    He’s clearly joking

  46. Javier Carrillo

  49. Laura Dias

    THIS is psychedelic music! Brian is great.

  50. Chelsea Mary-Margaret

    Wild Hogs!!!!


    Best movie of all time

    Natalie Senfter

    yesss, I love the movie ^^

    A.C. Harrison

    WarioWareProductions woah...

    Adam Kelleher

    if only the movie Old dogs hadn't bombed, there would have been a Wild Hogs sequel.

    A.C. Harrison

    Adam Kelleher no. Wild Hogs was awful, a simple sound track couldn't save that movie.

  51. Gizem KILINC

    Supernatural :D

  52. William Lam

    "oh i forget, people cant see me unless I want them to, it's very confusing"

    JS Initials

    Dogs can sense good vibrations. Ruff.


    "Here visual aid"

    Matthew Rider

    Imagine God being confused at all, let alone that. But He certainly showed himself through this song

  53. Ankush Sharma

    Supernatural .

    Ankush Sharma

    True as fuck. You are so smart.

    Nope, wild hogs

  57. Kidd Silence

    I've been hooked on this song ever since I saw the ending of Wild Hogs

  58. 07 lñ


  59. Andrew Kostelnyk

    Yes Brian Wilson is a genius!

  60. Yusuf Polat

    Much better than beach boys counterpart.


    +Yusuf Polat

    Indeed! A controversial opinion, but one I wholeheartedly agree with.

  61. Stephen Kerns

    please don't fight over Brian. Paul said Brian's music(Pet Sounds especially) touched him on such a deep level that it made him cry. Brian if you read this- please know from all of us that what you shared from your heart with us not only made us SMILE but saved so many of us from giving up and still keeps us believing in LOVE. Thank you BRIAN.

  62. Lynn-Steven Johanson

    According to Brian, it was Carl's idea to use the theramin and cello. Brilliant idea (and song)!

  63. James Anderson

    This is still an absolutely amazing recording. Add to that, when it was released. At the time, it was out there all by itself. Nothing else came close.

    Worldwide Wyatt

    James Anderson 2004?

    Robert Berardi

    LMAO! But you know what? Yes, 2004... Got it for Christmas in '04 and it did sound wonderfully different.

  64. Neil Points

    If only this record hadn't been abandoned in 67. Would have changed everything

    Брандон Кeллeр

    No it would not have lol

    Wade Spencer

    Not sure about that. I think this sound might have run its course.

    Catherine Rider

    Absolutely. Idk what the Fab Four could have cooked up to answer this modular, production masterpiece. Surf's Up is every bit the song A Day In The Life is.... Most certainly!! No one, NO ONE, was as good as Brian Wilson during the mid-sixties😎

  65. Green Light Music Channel

    I kinda wish the added vocals around 2:52 would have made it into the final version. I guess the removal of it adds a kind of "calm before the storm" in terms of a reprise of the main section of the song, but still.

    Paul Ski

    Agree 100 million percent. I'm gonna try to mix the two.

    Huw Thomas

    Well you'll be pleased to hear that there is a version of the original Beach Boys recording with that section. It was recorded originally but cut out. The version with that section is in the 'Smile Sessions' CD released about five years ago. Well worth buying!

    Green Light Music Channel

    @Huw Thomas I actually own it, already, but thank you. Definitely worth the buy.

  66. Carter Monroe

    Possibly the best produced and arranged song ever.  Both versions. 

  67. KurryRice

    It exclaims me, and me exclaim

  68. Tom Markowitz


  69. spizzardo

    I love this version. Beautiful lyrics. Hi Hope, this reminds me of you. xxx {:-)

  70. Padget Cowan

    Great Album. A little out there ... but amazing in it's own way.
