In The Summertime

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 not grey 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, di di di di di
Da do dat dat da, yeah, we’re hap-appy
Da da da, di dat da di da do da do da
Da do da da da, da da da do da da

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 friend and we will all go into town
