In the summertime (Mungo Jerry)


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 lane,
Do a ton, or a ton and twenty-five.
When the sun goes down, you can make it,
make it good in a lay-by.

We’re no threat people, we’re not dirty, we’re not mean.
We love everybody, but we do as we please.
When the weather is 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-da-da-da-da…Yeah, we’re hap happy,
da-da-da-da-dah.
dee-dee-dee-dee-dee.
Da-da-da-da-da…
da-da-da-da-dah

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 drivin’ or maybe we’ll settle down.
If she’s rich, if she’s nice,
bring your friends and we’ll all go into town.
