He gets around means two things in this song - one is he get around in his car, hits the hot spots and is famous.  The second is he is making it with a lot of girls.
That īs why he sings
None of the guys go steady cause it wouldn īt be right
To leave your best girl home now on Saturday night


You can īt get around and make it with the "chicks" if you īre going steady.

Hope this helps

??Liberty, you īre also from Cali?--I never realised that (please don īt say Atascadero)??
 
"I get around" according to the Beach Boys song, means "I go lot of places and meet a lot of people. I am known by, and know about, a lot of people and things. It also means, in more current terms, that I am a "player"."
 
There was a public service television commercial for communicable diseases on TV in the seventies where a band was singing the song "I get Around" while standing in front of two big letters: "VD" (venereal disease).
 
Hope this helps.
 
PS-I īm not from Atascadero, but Liberty īs picture looks a lot like someone I once knew from there.
