Summertime
Diana Ross

Summertime when will you come
I wanna put my light things on
I wanna put my winter life away
Summertime I need a sunny day

I want those peaches on the table
I want the watermelon red
And the warm sun creeping through the window
To ease me out of bed

I want the sand out there to lie on
And the sea out there to swim
So my heart can take a holiday
From breakin' over him

Summertime when will you come
I wanna put my light things on
I wanna put my winter life away
Summertime I need a sunny day

And I want to drive forever
Wanna roll the windows down
Get the breeze back on my body
Get my feet back on the ground

I want the sand out there to lie on
And the sea out there to swim
So my heart can take a holiday
From breakin' over him

Summertime when will you come
I wanna put my light things on
I wanna put my winter life away
Summertime I need a sunny day
