  • I was the only one down at Keeva Dun
    Who didn't drive a car that wasn't cool enough
    Just a baby blue parking lot Gremlin
    Not exactly a magnet for the women
    Until I hung that surfboard out the back

    For tips and caddies at the local court
    The night I mixed both drinks down on the wharf
    Flirtin' with the college girls getting my barefoot wet out in the world
    Fell in love 100 times

    Time was mine and life was easy
    Just like those ocean breezes
    Coolin' off the afternoon
    Wasn't long underneath the moon
    We had a beach fire and a pile of wet clothes
    Layin' back watchin' the skin glow
    Gotta smile when I think about those tan bod bikini tops
    So hot
    Summer job days

    The end of August came
    And the crowds went home
    Beaches deserted and the girls were gone
    Yeah I waved goodbye to the time and place
    And that two lane back to the interstate
    I look back I still look back when

    Time was mine and life was easy
    Just like those ocean breezes
    Coolin' off the afternoon
    Wasn't long underneath the moon
    We had a beach fire and a pile of wet clothes
    Layin' back watchin' the skin glow
    Gotta smile when I think about those tan bod bikini tops
    So hot
    Summer job days

    Time was mine and life was easy
    Just like those ocean breezes
    Coolin' off the afternoon
    Wasn't long underneath the moon
    We had a beach fire and a pile of wet clothes
    Layin' back watchin' the skin glow
    Gotta smile when I think about those tan bod bikini tops
    So hot
