Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer

Come on old friend, let us hook up and meet
Capture old memories after each other greet

Let us hug joyously and recollect and reminisce
Going back in time when we were mostly in bliss

Those glittering halcyon days of endless summers
Hastily eaten food, finished homework without a murmur

Dirty smeared faces, torn shirts, bruised knees n runny nose
Jumping jacks and marbles, ball games n snaky garden hose

Bitter doses of cold medicines, gulped hastily before yummy sweets
Chills and fevers ignored impatiently hearing pied piper’s drumbeat 

Sneaking out like a ninja, palpitating heart in mouth, clenched firmly
Tiptoeing down the creaking staircase, ears perked askance warily

It was all such a hoot and we had lots of fun n enjoyment galore
Recollecting still gives me joy, bringing past thrills to the fore

Those rented bike rides, seated together we were a singing duo
Umbrella’s turning inside out drenching as we rode like an arrow 

Come on old friend, let us hook up and meet
Capture old memories after each other greet

Let us hug joyously and recollect and reminisce
Going back in time when we were usually in bliss

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Just fill your basket full of sandwiches and weenies
Then lock the house up, now youre set
And on the beach youll see the girls in their bikinis
As cute as ever but they never get em wet

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Youll wish that summer could always be here

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Dont hafta tell a girl and fella about a drive-in
Or some romantic moon it seems
Right from the moment that those lovers start arrivin
Youll see more kissin <wolf whistle> in the cars than on the screen

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Youll wish that summer could always be here

Youll wish that summer could always be here
Youll wish that summer could always be here
