SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME

REMEMBER THOSE DAYS OF SUMMERTIME FUN,

SIPPING FROM PLASTIC CUPS OF COLD LEMONADE?

YOU WERE LOOKING COOL IN YOUR SHORTS WITH THOSE SHADES.

THE LADY DOWN THE STREET SOLD FREEZE POPS.

BUT, ON REALLY HOT DAYS YOU MADE YOUR OWN.

SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME.

REMEMBER YOU COULD’NT WAIT TO GO TO THE COMMUNITY POOL?

FORGET THE POOL, ON HOT, HOT DAYS YOU RAN THROUGH SPRINKLERS.

YOU REALLY DIDN’T CARE ABOUT YOUR CLOTHES,

YOU JUST WANTED TO GET WET.

SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME.

REMEMBER YOU COULDN’T WAIT FOR AUNTIE,

UNCLE JOE, AND THE GANG TO GET IN TOWN?

SOON AFTERWARDS, YOU COULDN’T WAIT FOR THEM TO LEAVE.

YOU AND THE KIDS WOULD GO TO THE LOCAL NEIGHBORHOOD STORE,

WITH ALLOWANCES YOU EARNED,

TO BUY SOME COOKIES AND CANDY.

REMEMBER THE NEIGHBORHOOD STORE WAS INSIDE SOMEONE’S HOUSE.

SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME.

YOU REALLY DID NOT HAVE A REAL VACATION.

YOUR MOM AND DAD PACKED KOOL-AIDE AND SANDWICHES.

THEY’D TAKE YOU AND THE FAMILY TO THE LOCAL STATE PARK.

SUMMER VACATION WAS STILL SO MUCH FUN-

YOU GOT AWAY FROM HOME.

SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE TIMES OF THE YEAR.
