"Summer Here Kids" as written by and Jason Lytle Luis Velez....
After she lets you glide around
finally hit the ground like a paper plane
take a trip join me in the sun
but not really though, I aint having fun
Cause summer here kids
summer here totally lies
tourist info said id have a good time
summer here kids
all of them awful lies
tourist info said id have a good time
Do as I didn't do because
I?m a picture of imdumbivinity
stay alone put a record on
listen to the songs keep yourself at home
Cause summer here kids
summer here totally lies
tourist info said id have a good time
summer here kids
all of them awful lies
tourist info said id have a good time I?m not having a good time

    General CommentReminds me of the time I went to the US and we went to Disneyland in CA.. a complete letdown.

    Somehow, it's gotten into my head that this song is about Grandaddy's hometown, Modesto, CA, a place that's been called "a great place to live, a horrible place to visit." It may be.

    General Commentthe line ' Summer Here Kids ' & note to british media (kids is NOT a noun) represents maybe a metaphoric place that isnt all it's cracked up to be.

    Imagine if you see a commercial on TV, ' Come to this tourist destination, you'll have a wonderful time ' and you get there, and don't enjoy it at all. In a metaphoric sense i think this idea is what Jason was trying to capture, but I do believe it's meant to be a rather vague topic that could be seen many ways. I think the Summer reference to Grandaddy probably relates to a lot of the hyped scenes, places, music and lifestyles that they see and hear about going on in the big cities and community that they (being country folk) just arent interested in and don't want to be a part of - therefore that lifestyle ' kids '.

    the end lines ' I'm not having a good time ' sticks in your head. HOW GOOD IS IT, makes you start to question yourself.. are you having a good time? are you being honest with yourself?

    General Commentit's about drugs i do believe. cokes negative effects mostly, i'd guess. not all g.d. songs are about technology or heartbreak. and this one's a daisy.
