In the Summertime [Mungo Jerry]

[Covers]

 

Lyrics

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 as you feel
speed along the land
do a ton, or a ton and twentyfive
when the sun goes down, you can make it
make it good in a lay-by

we’re not grey people, we’re not dirty, we’re not mean
we love everybody, but we do as we think
when the weather is fine
we go fishing or go swimming in the sea
we’re are always happy
live’s for living, yeah, that’s our philosophy

sing along with us, dee-dee-dee-dee-dee
da-da-da-da-da…
yeah, we’re happy happy, da-da-da-da-dah
when the winter’s here, then it’s party time
bring a bottle
wear you’re bright clothes. it’ll soon be summertime
and we’ll sing again
we”l go drivin’ or maybe we’ll settle down
if she’s rich, if she’s nice
bring you’re friends and we’ll all go into town
