    Come on

    Do you remember or should I rewind?
    To that summer when you caught my eye?
    I played it cool, the weather was hot
    You had the beauty & the beach on lock
    With your flip flops, half shirt, short shorts, mini skirt
    Walkin' on the beach, so pretty
    You wasn't lookin' for a man
    When you saw me in the sand
    But you fell for the boy from the city

    I was like "Hey, girl, can I get your number?"
    I remember what you told me too
    "Don't call after 10:00"
    But you know that I did
    'Cause I couldn't stop thinkin' 'about you

    I think about you in the summertime
    And all the good times we had, baby
    Been a few years and I can't deny
    The thought of you still makes me crazy
    I think about you in the summertime
    I'm sittin' here in the sun with you on my mind
    My summertime

    Do you remember? I'll never forget
    Touchin' your body all soakin' wet
    The water was cool, the feelin' was hot
    Kissin' on you while the ocean rocked
    In your strapless sundress
    Kickin' back, no stress
    As long as we was together
    'Cause we were feelin' young love
    And we couldn't get enough
    Baby, I could reminisce forever

    And now I'm like
    Hey, girl, don't you know I miss it?
    And I wonder if you miss it too?
    Never thought it would end 'til it did
    Now, I'm here and I can't stop thinkin' 'about you

    I think about you in the summertime
    And all the good times we had, baby
    Been a few years and I can't deny
    The thought of you still makes me crazy
    I think about you in the summertime
    I'm sittin' here in the sun with you on my mind
    My summertime

    (Break it down)
    Summer ended, winter started
    It got colder when we parted ways
    (I like this part)
    As the seasons change
    (Now bring it, bring it back)
    Winter melted, spring, I felt it
    Summertime will never be the same
    Without you, my summertime
    My summertime

    I think about you in the summertime
    And all the good times we had, baby
    Been a few years and I can't deny
    The thought of you still makes me crazy
    I think about you in the summertime
    I'm sittin' here in the sun with you on my mind
