"Keepin' The Summer Alive" as written by and Wilson/bachman....
When it's ice cream weather get the gang back together
Roll down your windows and ride
They'll be sleepin' in the sand dunes dancin' in the streets
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive

They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(sum sum summer ah live)
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(ah keep the summer)
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(sum sum summer alive)
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(try to keep the summer)

When it's ice cream weather all the girls will look better
The boys try to give them a ride
To the one last party 'fore the school bell rings
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive

They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(sum sum summer)
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(sum sum summer)
They're just tryin' to keep t alive)
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(alive)

Lay down in the sun
And watch the clouds roll by
And bein' with the one you love
In the summertime

When it's last september back in school we'll remember
The cure for the wintertime blues
Grab your girl hit the road head on down to the beach
You'll be comin' home with sand in your shoes

They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(sum sum summer )
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(sum sum summer)
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(sum sum summer)
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(alive)
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
We're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
Just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
Just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
Keep the summer alive
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
We'll just
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
Keep the summer alive
They're just tryin' to keep the summer alive
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
Yeah tryin' to keep the summer alive
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)
(yeah yeah uh huh i know we'll keep the summer)

    General CommentFrom the 1980 album of the same name, the very appropriately titled "Keepin' The Summer Alive" for me marks the beginning of the Beach Boys comeback after being mired in a forgettable mess of strange music since the late 60's. This song and it's album aren't as polished as a listener might like, but it is a huge improvement for them as they resuscitate summer and what it means to be a Beach Boy.
    This is a fun song, but it can border on being annoyingly repetitive. It was such a welcome change for the band (the album went to #75) and fans. Not a greatest hit, it's still fun, and I enjoy it because of what it symbolizes in keeping the summer alive as well as the Beach Boys.
