sweet summer days

Summer days and summer music, funny  how memory works sometimes.

There was a song in my head, or a fragment of a song–sweet summer days, sweet summer days–but I could not remember the rest of the song or who had done it.

Yes, there  is a song “Sweet Summer Days”  and it’s a very good song,  but it’s not the song I was thinking of.

However, thanks to the internet, I was able to find the one  that was playing in my head again and I’m so happy to share it with you.  Here are the actual lyrics—

Hot Fun in the Summertime
Sly & The Family Stone
All: End of the spring and here she comes back
Hi Hi Hi Hi there
Them summer days, those summer days
That’s when I had most of my fun, back
High high high high there
Them summer days, those summer days
Rose: I “cloud nine” when I want to
Freddie: Out of school, yeah
Larry: County fair in the country sun
Sly: And everything, it’s true, ooh yeah
All: Hot fun in the summertime x 4
All: First of the fall and then she goes back
Bye bye bye bye there
Them summer days,…
