The Royals of San Diego are an a cappella group specializing in Doo Wop from the 50's and 60's.

Biography

The Royals, formed in 2005, are committed to the recreation of the East Coast street corner sound from the late 50s and early 60s. They refer to themselves as an "East Meets West" group because members hail from both the East and West Coast.

While the group performs mainly on the West Coast, their recordings have earned them a global fan base thanks to online oldies radio. With their performances being featured in West Coast Doo Wop shows alongside some of the era's greatest legends, it's no wonder why they're often billed as "West Coast A cappella At Its Best"!

26 Miles (Santa Catalina)

Written By: Glen Larson and Bruce Belland

Twenty- six miles across the sea
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me
Santa Catalina, the island of romance, romance, romance, romance

Water all around it everywhere
Tropical trees and the salty air
But for me the thing that's a-waitin' there-romance

It seems so distant, twenty-six miles away
Restin' in the water serene
I'd work for anyone, even the Navy
Who would float me to my island dream

Twenty- six miles, so near yet far
I'd swim with just some water-wings and my guitar
I could leave the wings but I'll need the guitar for romance, romance, romance,
romance

Twenty- six miles across the sea
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me
Santa Catalina, the island of romance

A tropical heaven out in the ocean
Covered with trees and girls
If I have to swim, I'll do it forever
Till I'm gazin' on those island pearls

Forty kilometers in a leaky old boat
Any old thing that'll stay afloat
When we arrive we'll all promote romance, romance, romance, romance

Twenty- six miles across the sea
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me
Santa Catalina, the island of romance, romance, romance, romance

Stand by Me

Written By: Ben E. King, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light you see
No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh, stand Stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh, stand Stand by me, stand by me

So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh, stand Stand by me, stand by me

Mystery of You

Written By: Frank Mancuso

Could it be the twinkle
(The twinkle in your eye)
Sent from all the shining stars
(The ones up in the sky)
Oh, darling, oh darling
What is the mystery of you

Could it be the way you talk
(The way you talk to me)
That reminds me that you'll always be
(The only girl for me)
Oh, darling, oh darling
What is the mystery of you

I'd be a fool, yes
To think that I will find
That one little secret
To make you say you're mine
And though I'm only 29 and you're one less than me
(I would spend a whole lifetime)
Trying to solve that mystery

Could it be the way you talk
(The way you talk to me)
That reminds me that you'll always be
(The only girl for me)
Oh, darling, oh darling
What is the mystery of you
