Chosen lyrics from "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by the Beach Boys 1968
Wouldn't it be nice if we were older
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long
And wouldn't it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong
Happy times together we've been spending
I wish that every kiss was never ending
Wouldn't it be nice
