Charted: 34
  • Summertime is finally here
    That old ballpark, man, is back in gear
    Out on forty nine
    Man I can see the lights

    School's out and the nights roll in
    Man, just like a long lost friend
    You ain't seen in a while
    And can't help but smile

    And it's two bare feet on the dashboard
    Young love and an old Ford
    Cheap shades and a tattoo
    And a Yoo-Hoo bottle on the floorboard

    Perfect song on the radio
    Sing along 'cause it's one we know
    It's a smile, it's a kiss
    It's a sip of wine, it's summertime
    Sweet summertime

    Temperature says ninety three
    Down at the Deposit and Guarantee
    But that swimmin' hole
    It's nice and cold

    Bikini bottoms underneath
    But the boys' hearts still skip a beat
    When them girls shimmy off
    Them old cutoffs

    And it's two bare feet on the dashboard
    Young love and an old Ford
    Cheap shades and a tattoo
    And a Yoo-Hoo bottle on the floorboard

    Perfect song on the radio
    Sing along 'cause it's one we know
    It's a smile, it's a kiss
    It's a sip of wine, it's summertime
    Sweet summertime

    The more things change
    The more they stay the same
    Don't matter how old you are
    When you know what I'm talkin' 'bout
    Yeah baby when you got

    Two bare feet on the dashboard
    Young love and an old Ford
    Cheap shades and a tattoo
    And a Yoo-Hoo bottle rollin' on the floorboard

    Perfect song on the radio
    Sing along 'cause it's one we know
    It's a smile, it's a kiss
    It's a sip of wine, it's summertime

  • Camille from Toronto, OhPerfect blend of words, tune, vocals, sentiment. A work of art, really. The song paints a true, true picture of summertime in the good ole U.S. of A.
