In the summertime

Written by Ray Dorset

| G ? G | G ? G | C ? C | G ? G | D ? C | G ? G |  

In the summertime when the weather is hot, 
you can stretch right up and touch the sky, 
        C                                                      G  
when the weather is fine, you got women, you got women on your mind.         
Have a drink, have a drive,  
C                           G  
go out and 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. 
        C                                          G  
Speed along the lane, do a ton or a ton and twenty-five. 
When the sun goes down,    
        C                            G  
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. 
         C                                                    G  
When the weather is fine, we go fishing or go swimming in the sea.       
We're always happy, 
           C                                 G 
life's for living, yeah, that's our philosophy. 

Sing along with us, da da di di di  
Da da da da yeah we?re happy  
      C                           G 
Da da da da, di di di di di da da da  
Da da da da ,  
       C                         G  
da da da da da da da da da da da da  

When the winter's here, yeah, it's party-time,  
bring a bottle, wear your bright clothes, it'll soon be summertime. 
          C                                                  G  
And we'll sing again, we'll go driving or maybe we'll settle down.     
If she's rich if she's nice,  
           C                              G  
bring your friend and we will all go into town. 

Repeat Verse 1, 2, 3 and then the diddles until fade out.
