Easy in the Summertime

  • July nineteen-eighty-one
    Alabama summer sun
    Sissy got her fishing pole
    Went down to the honey hole
    Greasy fiery frying pan
    Viola grabbed it with her hand
    It burned so bad her skin it peeled
    There I saw the truth revealed

    Watermelon tastes so good
    Bare feet on the cool hardwood
    Summer dresses Nanny made
    Cut off blue jeans torn and frayed
    Swinging on the barnyard gate
    It don't get dark till after eight
    Run inside a kiss and hug
    Wrapped up in my mama's love

    Firefly whispered in my ear
    She said let's get outta here
    Fly down to the creek with me
    There's something you gotta see
    The stars come out and glow so bright
    That's why I don't mess with morning light
    'Cause they're the ones that soothe my soul
    They make me wanna rock 'n roll

    Easy in the summertime
    Easy in the summertime
