Summertime Fun

SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME

REMEMBER THOSE DAYS OF SUMMERTIME FUN,

SIPPING ON THOSE PLASTIC CUPS OF COLD LEMONADE?

REMEMBER LOOKING ALL COOL IN THOSE SHADES,

AND THE LADY DOWN THE STREET SELLING HER FREEZE POPS?

ON REALLY HOT DAYS YOU MADE THEM YOURSELF.

REMEMBER YOU COULD’NT WAIT TO GO TO THE COMMUNITY POOL?

FORGET THE POOL, ON HOT, HOT, DAYS YOU RAN THROUGH

THE SPRINKLERS.

YOU DID’NT REALLY CARE ABOUT THE CLOTHES, HECK,

YOU JUST WANTED TO GET WET.

SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME.

REMEMBER YOU COULDN’T WAIT FOR AUNTIE,

UNCLE JOE, AND THE GANG TO GET IN TOWN?

THEN, SOON AFTERWARDS, YOU COULDN’T WAIT FOR THEM TO LEAVE?

YOU AND KIDS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD WOULD GO DOWN

THE STREET WITH ALLOWANCES YOU EARNED TO BUY SOME

CANDY FROM THE LOCAL NEIGHBORHOOD STORE.

THE STORE WAS INSIDE SOMEONE’S LIVING ROOM.

SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME.

REMEMBER WHEN YOU DID NOT HAVE A REAL VACATION?

YOUR MOM AND DAD WOULD PACK KOOL-AIDE AND SANDWICHES.

THEN, THEY’D TAKE YOU AND THE FAMILY TO THE LOCAL STATE PARK.

THE VACATION WAS FUN- BECAUSE YOU GOT AWAY FROM HOUSE.

SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE TIMES OF THE YEAR
