Summertime she comes
She brings gracefully the sun
The summer light shine so bright
Fall down on me and let me know its alright

Everyday she brings
Like the cuckoo she sings
The joyous state of light
The darkest day and night
We may never know

Oooh ooh oooh

She greets the morning sun shine
5am its not too early she wakes up in all its glory
The birds were chirping all night through
She marks them down with care and caution never stops she knows their marking
Jumping swiftly tree to tree
Oooh my summer time bee
Oooh how I miss thee

Laying out in the sunshine
Find she has a lot of things to say
Its beautiful and so are you
I want to be with you everyday

But out with time and the rains will come
Catch you asleep and exposed
Flooded ways flood your days
Stuck between some muddy ways
And there we stand

Oooh ooh oooh

She greets the moring sunshine
9am its not too early
She wakes up her heads still blurry
The cars were running all night through
She looks so high in the morning
See her smile you feel her warming
Makes you feel like your alive
Oooh my summer time bee
Oooh how I miss thee

But if a seed took root
And found its way into full bloom
Who am I to cause you pain
You are young and things they change
Ill stay here

So lay back today
Let the sun have her way
Greet the grey, feel the way,
Lie to me and tell me it’ll be okay

Oooh ooh oooh
