Help Me, Rhonda
The Beach Boys
Beach Boys 1965 Help Me Rhonda 45
Well, since she put me down
I've been out doing in my head
I come in late at night
And in the morning I just lay in bed

Well, Rhonda, you look so fine (look so fine)
And I know it wouldn't take much time
For you to help me, Rhonda
Help me get her out of my heart
