"Unemployed In Summertime" as written by and Emiliana/white Torrini....
Let's get drunk on Saturday
Walk up Primrose Hill until we lose our way
We'll get sunburned on the grass
Playing silly buggers 'till I make a pass
And you laugh at my face

[Chorus]
Unemployed in summertime
I've only just turned 21, I'll be OK
Unemployed in summertime
Don't need money 'cause we're young
I'll just stay awake till the morning
With make up all over my face

Sorry don't get mad at me
I just did the sex quiz from your magazine
You're my best friend in the world
Just like me you don't do anything you're told

[Chorus]

On a mission for my summer kiss
I close my eyes and wet my lips
But then I miss
And you laugh at my face

[Chorus]

Unemployed in summertime
I've only just turned 21, I'll be OK

    General CommentI went to London last year for spring break. I dragged my friend around for 2 hours in search of Primrose Hill. The weather, of course, was crappy and cloudy, but as we got to the top of the hill the sun came out for a minute and the sight was gorgeous--just like the song

    General CommentThis totally reminds me of me and my friends in the summer of ( dare I say my age)93. Wow! I'm getting old. 90210 was where it was at.

    General Commenti was older than 21 but i know that feeling...
    every one should be unemployed at summertime every once in a while...
    good to have a song about it...
    better to have a very good one...

    General CommentThis reminds me so much of my first real realtionship (though I had just turned 22.) Especially the part about missing the kiss. Wonderful song.

    General CommentThis is a great song, just about having too much time to yourself one summer and ending up doing silly things.
