"Let this be one of your own Summer Songs"


Stepped outside and it all hit me
the Shoes were off, the shades were on
The smell of air, the catch of scenery
it had begun.

Took out the van, no destination
Windows down, the Volume up
With my own town, like a vacation
under the sun, oh, we all know it has begun

I can't describe why it feels sweeter
but somehow everybody feels as strong
though its been done so much before
you can count this as one more
You can call this my own Summer Song

Pencil my best
Tryin' to win a diving contest
all while Mr. James Taylor plays in our backyard

Pale Ale
on the lawn at a show
Setting Sail
On my cousin's boat
Sailing away wherever these summer breezes blow

It's been that way since I can remember
It all flies by, and then it's gone
so why not save 3 months of time
to spread it through the other 9
I will try with my own Summer Song

However you see out the season
From summer loves to camp sing-alongs
I hope to make what could be
like all the others before me
make this your very own Summer Song
