In The Summertime (Elton John)

Written by Ray Dorset 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 daddie's rich, take her out for a meal, if her daddie's poor, just do what 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 layby. 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. Sing along with us, de-de-de-de-de, da-da-da-da-da, yeah we're hap-happy, When the winter's here, yeah! 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.
