Produced by The Beach Boys. Little bird up in a tree Looked down and sang a song to me Of how it began. Na na na na. The trout in the shiny brook Gave a worm another look And told me not to worry About my life. Tree in my own backyard Stands all alone Bears fruit for me And it tastes so good. Where's my pretty bird? He must have flown away If I keep singing He'll come back someday

The Beach Boys' Christmas Album is the seventh studio album by the Beach Boys, released in November 1964. it contains five original songs and seven standards on a Christmas theme. The album proved to be a long-running success during subsequent Christmas seasons, initially reaching number six in the US Billboard 200 chart in its year of release and eventually going gold. Music historian James Perone wrote that it is "regarded as one of the finest holiday albums of the rock era".

The production and harmonies remained pleasantly idiosyncratic, but there was little substance at the heart of most of the songs. The irony was that Smile had collapsed, in part, because some of the Beach Boys felt that Wilson's increasingly avant-garde leanings would lose their pop audience; yet by the time of Friends, the Beach Boys had done a pretty good job of losing most of their audience by retreating to a less experimental, more group-based approach

The Beach Boys are now so venerated that it's hard to recall a time when you risked ridicule if you admitted to being a fan. The band fell out of favour with the public in 1967. Yet after they withdrew from the Monterey festival and pulled their much-touted Smile album in the spring of 1967, the critics who had acclaimed Good Vibrations as a masterpiece just a few months earlier turned their backs on the group. The lost gem of this era was their Friends album from 1968. One estimate has its 1968 US sales at a paltry 18,000 - all of their albums prior to Pet Sounds in 1966 had sold a million. But it was a healing album for the troubled group, with a very grounded kith and kin philosophy on songs like the title song and When A Man Needs A Woman, and a gentle resignation to nature on Little Bird and Be Still (Dennis Wilson's first ever contributions).
