Summertime rolls…

I can’t believe that the summer is over.  Where’d it go?  I’ll bet you’re wondering too.  And I’m just ever-so-slightly irritated that on this last day of Labor Day holiday it’s overcast, possibly rainy later, and on the cool side.

This time of year always feels nostalgic to me as we begin to turn away from the lazy vacations, sunsoaked skin, green grassy smells, and endless BBQs.  Shorter, cooler days are on their way, as are the hectic holiday seasons and before you know it **poof!** it’s the New Year.

To me, one of the ultimate summertime songs is Jane’s Addictions Summertime Rolls…aptly named.  ‘Please to enjoy!

“Summertime Rolls”
Fell into
A sea of grass
And disappeared among
The shady blades…
Children all
Ran over me
Screaming tag!
You are the one!

He trips her as
Her sandals fail
She says stop!
I’m a girl…
Whose fingernails are made
Of mother’s pearl…

Yellow buttercup
Orange buttercat
Chasing after
The crazy bee
Mad about somebody…

Me and my girlfriend
Don’t wear no shoes
Her nose is painted pepper
She loves me
I mean it’s serious
As serious can be…

She sings a song and
I listen to what it says:
If you want a friend
Feed any animal…
There was so much space
I cut me a piece
With some fine wine
It brought peace to my mind
In the summertime…
And it rolled

Summer…. oh…
Oh…. the summertime rolls
