Sunshine, Fools.

Take me back to the sweet times,
The hot nights.
Everything is gonna be alright,
In the summertime.. Yeah, in the summertime!
Summertime - Thirsty Merc

In the summertime when the weather is high,
You can stretch right up and touch the sky.
Oh when the weather's fine,
You got women, you got women on your mind!
Summertime - Mungo Jerry

And it's you and me in the summertime,
We'll be hand in hand down in the park.
With a squeeze and a sigh and that twinkle in your eye,
And all the sunshine banishes the dark!
Summertime - The Sundays

What lovely songs. Very summery. Full of ahem, good times. And sunshine. Yeah, we get it.

Seriously? Good to sing along to, but SO unrealistic.

You're in for a treat folks. I decided to write my very own summer anthem. Now if someone is interested in recorded it as a song and giving me half the profits, please contact me. Right on.

Oh, Oh, it's summertime!
Refereeing sports games in the heat.
And although you put on lots of suncream,
Your shoulders are lumps of cooked meat.

Oh, Oh, it's summertime!
Your kids win but your skin - it does not.
After three hours of sport you are thinking,
Get me inside, it's too fucking hot.

Oh, Oh, it's summertime!
You get home and feel quite worse for wear.
Your skin is all red and you know who to blame,
Damn UV rays floating through the air.

Oh, Oh, it's summertime!
Since the sports match you have felt like shit.
The moisturiser bottle is empty,
Your skin starting to itch quite a bit.

Oh, Oh, it's summertime!
Five days on and the skin is still hurting.
Tomorrow it's off to the doctor for you,
EVIL BLISTERS! I am totally not working.

Summertime - Aly

Seriously. If I took a picture of the blisters that erupted today, you would be turned off your food for several days. Totally disgusting. Effing sunburn!

(Just a couple more comments until my big 1-0-0-0! Holy cow!)

28 days down; 2 to go.

So who are you gonna ask to record your new summer anthem? I am with you all of the way! Not a big summer fan here either.

Ohmygod. Am I 1000? Do I get the HACAHHCAC award thingie again?


Gimme, gimme, gimme!

Poor Aly, poor, poor Aly and her blistered shoulders. Poooooooor Aly.

Thanks for the Sunday's, I love that song and I love that album!

LaLa said...

....hmmm.... maybe now I am 1000?

Teacher Jane said...

I always marvel at the way I don't know all of the artists of the songs you picked. It makes me angry when I realize that you probably know most of the American summertime songs, but I don't know any of the Aussie ones. :(

LaLa said...

Now? Now am I 1000? If I tell you how lovely and gorgeous and RADIANT you are looking?

Teacher Jane: Mungo Jerry and The Sunday's are English, you should Seriously buy the sunday's "Static & Silence" album. Seriously good stuff.

LaLa said...

Hiiiiii. Just checking in to see how.... ah... the blog and stuff is going? (Are you going to block me from your site?)

I still have scars on my shoulders from one summer of burns. Terrible.

Allison said...

Great song. But I think any REALLY good summertime diddy would NOT include the "f-word". Harsh cursing just doesn't seem very summery. :)

kari said...
