SUMMER CLASSICS (2)

Good morning!

Here is another classic summer song from 1966. What does it have in common with yesterday's song by Mungo Jerry apart from the topic of summer? Sideboards (or sideburns in US English)! Sideboards are the hair that grows down the sides of a man's face in front of his ears.

"Summer In The City" THE LOVIN' SPOONFUL
(John Sebastian - Mark Sebastian - Steve Boone)

You can watch the video of this song at the following YouTube link:

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city

All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright

And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

Cool town, evening in the city
Dressing so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright

And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

See you tomorrow, with a final summer classic!

Enjoy your day!
