        In the summertime

In the summertime when the weather is high
you can stretch right out and touch the sky.
When the weather's 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 livin yeah that's our philosophy

Sing along with us dee dee dee dee dee
da da da da da yea we're hap-pa-py
da da dam dee da da dee da da da da da
da da da da da da da da da da da alright y'all

When the winter's here yeah it's party time
bring a bottle wear your 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

In the summertime when the weather is high
you can stretch right out and touch the sky
when the weather's high 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 livin yea that's our philosophy.

Sing along with us dee dee dee dee dee
da da da da da yea we're hap-pa-py
da da dam dee da da dee da da da da da
da da da da da da da da da da da alright y'al.
