I-I love the colorful clothes she wears
And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair
I hear the sound of a gentle word
On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air

She’s giving me excitations

She’s giving me excitations
Good, good, good, good vibrations
She’s giving me excitations
Good, good, good, good vibrations

Close my eyes, she’s somehow closer now
Softly smile, I know she must be kind
When I look in her eyes
She goes with me to a blossom world

I’m picking up good vibrations
She’s giving me excitations

She’s giving me excitations

Ah, my my, my, what elation
I don’t know where but she sends me there
Oh, my my, my what a sensation
Ah, my, my my, what elation

Gotta keep those loved good vibrations a-happening with her
Gotta keep those loved good vibrations a-happening with her
Gotta keep those loved good vibrations a-happening with her

Ah!

Good, good, good, good vibrations
She’s giving me excitations
Good, good, good, good vibrations
