  • Here comes summer
    School is out, oh, happy day
    Here comes summer
    I'm gonna grab my girl and run away
    Here comes summer
    We'll go swimmin' every day
    And let the sun shine bright on my happy summer home

    Well, school's not so bad but summer's better
    It gives me more time to see my girl
    Walks through the park 'neath the shiny moon
    When we kiss, she makes my flattop curl

    It's summer
    I feel her lips so close to mine
    Here comes summer
    When we meet our hearts entwine
    It's the greatest
    Let's have summer all the time
    Oh, let the sun shine bright on my happy summer home

    Here comes summer (here comes summer)
    Almost June the sun is bright
    Here comes summer (here comes summer)
    Drive-in movies every night
    (Double features) double features
    Lots more time to hold her tight
    So let the sun shine bright on my happy summer home

    Well, I've a long to hold my girl beside me
    Sit by the lake 'til one or two
    Go for a drive in the summer moonlight
    Dream of a love, the whole night through

    It's summer
    She'll be with me every day
    Here comes summer
    Meet the gang at Joe's Cafe
    If she's willing
    We'll go steady right away
    Oh, let the sun shine bright on my happy summer home
    (Oh, let the sun shine bright)
    Here comes summer time at last! Writer/s: Jerry Paul Keller
