In the summertime
When the weather is high
You can stretch right up
And touch the sky
                     
When the weather`s fine
You got women, you got
Women on your mind
                     
Have a drink, have a drive
Go `round and see
What you can find

If her Daddy`s rich
Take her out for a meal
If her Daddy`s poor
Just do what you feel
                     
Speed along the lane
Do a ton or a ton and twenty five
                     
When the sun goes down
You can make it,
Make it good in a lay-by

We`re no threat, 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
Dee dee dee dee dee
Da da da da da, yeah
We`re hap-pap-py
Da da dee.......
                     
When the winter`s here
Yeah, it`s party time
Bring your 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 and
And we`ll all go into town

In the summer time
When the weather is high
You can stretch right up
And 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 and see
What you can find

If her Daddy`s rich
Take her out for a meal
If her Daddy`s poor
Just do what you feel
                     
Speed along the lane
Do a ton or a ton and twenty five
                     
When the sun goes down
You can make it,
Make it good in a lay-by

We`re no threat, people
We`re not dirty, we`re not mean
We love everybody
But we do as we please

Swimming in the sea
                     
We`re always happy

Comment Comment
"Do a ton, or a ton and 25" --a ton is britslang for 100 mph, i.e. do 100 or 125 mph
                     
a "lay-by" is a cut on the side of skinny UK roads where drivers can pull over
