In The Summertime
In the summertime
when the weather is high
you can stretch right up
and touch the sky
when the weather is fine
you got women
you got women
on your mind
have a drink
have a drive
go out and see
what you can find

If her daddy´s rich
take her out for a meal
if her daddy´s poor
just do what you feel
speed along the lane
do a ton or a ton an´ twenty five
when the sun goes down
you can make it
make it good or do lay-by

We´re not bad people
we´re not dirty
we´re not mean
we love everybody
but we do as we please
when the weather´s fine
we go fishing or go
swimming in the sea
we´re always happy
life´s for living yeah
that´s our philosophy

Sing along with us
dee dee dee dee dee
da du da da da
yeah we´re hap-happy
da da da dee da du
dee da du da du
ya da du da da da
da da da du da da
alright ah

When the winter´s here
yeah it´s party time
bring a bottle
wear our bright clothes
it´ll soon be summertime
and we´ll sing again
we´ll go driving or maybe
we´ll settle down
if she´s rich
if she´s nice
bring your friends
and we´ll all go into town
