  • Song Lyrics:
    In the summertime

    when the weather is high

    you can stretch right up
    an' 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 an' 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 an' 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's fine

    we go fishing
    or go swimming in the sea.
    we're always happy

    life's for living
    yeah! That's our philosophy.

    When the winter's here

    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
    an' we'll all go into town.
    (I B Emerson)
