  • Kiss me hard before you go
    Summertime sadness
    I just wanted you to know
    That baby, you're the best

    I got my red dress on tonight
    Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
    Done my hair up real big, beauty queen style
    High heels off, I'm feeling alive

    Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
    Telephone wires above are sizzlin' like a snare
    Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
    Nothing scares me anymore (one, two, three, four)

    Kiss me hard before you go
    Summertime sadness
    I just wanted you to know
    That baby, you're the best

    I got that summertime, summertime sadness
    Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
    Got that summertime, summertime sadness
    Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

    I'm feelin' electric tonight
    Cruising down the coast goin' 'bout 99
    Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
    I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight

    Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
    Telephone wires above are sizzlin' like a snare
    Honey, I'm on fire, I feel it everywhere
    Nothing scares me anymore (one, two, three, four)

    Kiss me hard before you go
    Summertime sadness
    I just wanted you to know
    That baby, you're the best

    I got that summertime, summertime sadness
    Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
    Got that summertime, summertime sadness
    Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

    Think I'll miss you forever
    Like the stars miss the sun in the morning sky
    Later's is better than never
    Even if you're gone, I'm gonna drive, (drive) drive

    I got that summertime, summertime sadness
    Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
    Got that summertime, summertime sadness
    Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

    Kiss me hard before you go
    Summertime sadness
    I just wanted you to know
    That baby, you're the best

    I got that summertime, summertime sadness
    Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
    Got that summertime, summertime sadness
    Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh Writer/s: Elizabeth Grant, Rick Nowels
