Don't Worry Baby

“Worry is interest paid on trouble before it comes due.”

- William Ralph Inge
(06 June 1860 - 26 Feb 1954)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Worry - one of my better skills... quite possibly one of my best talents.....

BONUS - Don't Worry Baby - The Beach Boys


"Don’t Worry Baby" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Roger Christian, produced by Wilson and first recorded by the Beach Boys. The band's version, a tender ballad with falsetto lead vocal by Brian, was first released on their 1964 album Shut Down Volume 2. It was also released as the B-side of The Beach Boys' first U.S. number-one hit single, "I Get Around", managing to reach number 24 on the U.S. Hot 100 in its own right. The single was released in the United States in May 1964 through Capitol Records. It was released a month later, in June 1964, in the United Kingdom.

Brian Wilson cited the song as his attempt to capture the essence of his all-time favourite record, "Be My Baby" by the Ronettes, who would later cover his song. At one time, Wilson listened to his 45 record of the song he "could never do" up to 100 times a day.

John Lennon's 1980 hit, "(Just Like) Starting Over", is considered by some to somewhat borrow from the chorus melody of "Don't Worry Baby", while Garbage's 1998 hit, "Push It", contains an interpolation of its chorus.

The song "Don't Worry Baby" is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list.[1], and ranked as the 176th greatest song of all time in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 08/28/19, @ 6:30 PM:


Dorian became a hurricane early this afternoon and now is carrying eighty mile per hour winds with higher gusts. The storm "shot the gap" between Puerto Rico and the US and British Virgin Islands and avoided the mountains of PR and also avoided the 10,000 ft. peaks of Hispaniola which would likely have held her back. She is now in the open Atlantic east of the Bahamas where the water is warm and the wind shear is light, meaning that she will have plenty of time to gain strength before making landfall which looks more and more likely to be on the central Florida east coast early Monday. She is expected to be a Cat. 3 (Major Hurricane) at that time and likely cross the state at Cat 2 strength before entering the even warmer Gulf of Mexico where she very well could strengthen again. The worst hurricane to ever strike Florida was on Labor Day in the 1930's and this one will also be bad, just not that bad. The Governor has already declared a statewide emergency so if you aren't here, now is not the time to visit. We will hunker down and deal with what nature brings and I hope you folks will pray for us if and when she arrives. I'll keep you posted in the meantime.

   YOWZERONI! Thank you, Jimmy!

Don't Worry Baby

Written by Brian Wilson (b. 20 June 1942) and Roger Christian (03 July 1934 – 11 July 1991)

Sung with Lorrie Morgan (b. 27 June 1959) on lead vocals and The Beach Boys backup vocals

Well, its been building up inside of me
For oh, I don't know how long;
I don't know why, but I keep thinking
Something's bound to go wrong.

But she looks in my eyes
And makes me realize
When she says, "Don't worry, baby."
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Everything will turn out alright.

Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby.

I guess I should've kept my mouth shut
When I started to brag about my car,
But I can't back down now because
I pushed the other guys too far.

She makes me come alive
And makes me wanna drive
When she says, "Don't worry baby."
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Everything will turn out alright.

Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby.

She told me "Baby, when you race today
Just take along my love with you,
And if you knew how much I loved you,
Baby, nothing could go wrong with you."

Oh, what she does to me
When she makes love to me
And she says "Don't worry, baby"
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Everything will turn out alright.

Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby.
