Ooooh... So long, got to leave your land Many thanks, it was mighty grand I do hope to see you again Farmer's daughter Farmer's daughter Farmer's daughter Farmer's daughter Farmer's daughter

WEBMISTRESS speculates:

Not much to say here. Christine was dating Dennis Wilson, a Beach Boy, and they used one of the Beach Boys' songs to show off their own harmonies. All three - Christine, Lindsey, and Stevie - harmonize on this one. They do it very well, but it's quite a departure from the type of music they usually make and I think it was just a good gimmick for a live show. Not my favorite, but it's not that bad.
