"When The Sun Goes Down" as written by and Bill Mack....
Sun tan toes, ticklin' the sand,
Cold drink chillin' in my right hand,
Watchin' you sleep in the evening light,
Restin' up for a long long night.

'Cause when the sun goes down, we'll be groovin',
When the sun goes down we'll be feelin' alright,
When the sun sinks down, over the water,
Everything gets hotter when the sun goes down.

All day long, just taking it easy,
Laying in a hammock, where it's nice and breezy,
Been sleepin' off the night before, 'cause when the sun goes down,
We'll be back for more.

'Cause when the sun goes down, we'll be groovin',
When the sun goes down we'll be feelin' alright,
When the sun sinks down, over the water,
Everything gets hotter when the sun goes down.

This old guitar,and my dark sunglasses,
This sweet concoction is as smooth as molasses,
Nothing to do, but breath all day,
Until the big moon rises and its time to play.

'Cause when the sun goes down, we'll be groovin',
When the sun goes down we'll be feelin' alright,
When the sun sinks down, over the water,
Everything gets hotter when the sun goes down.

'Cause when the sun goes down, we'll be groovin',
When the sun goes down we'll be feelin' alright,
When the sun sinks down, over the water,
Everything gets hotter when the sun goes down.

'Cause when the sun goes down, we'll be groovin',
When the sun goes down we'll be feelin' alright,
When the sun sinks down, over the water,
Everything gets hotter when the sun goes down.

When the sun goes down, we'll be groovin',
When the sun goes down, we'll be feelin' alright,
When the sun sinks down, over the water,
She thinks crackers sexy when the sun goes down.

    General CommentI think it's kinda creepy that Uncle Kracker says "Uncle Kenny's hotter" and "Hail to Kenny" in some of the last lines of the song. Either he's sucking up to him to try and get more exposure, or he's got a thing for him.

    General CommentI think the song is just about 2 friends relaxing and having a good time in the evenings like most of us like to do. This song just puts you in a good mood and makes ya kind of want to go out and have a good time.

    General CommentThis song is clearly a rip-off of Sugar Ray's "Fly".

    That is all.

    General CommentYeah, this song kind of makes you wonder... they never specify if they're talking about eachother or if they're talking about a girl... they're saying stuff like "everything gets hotter when the sun goes down" and "sleeping off the night before... 'Cause when the sun goes down we'll be back for more"... It sounds pretty gay to me.

    But It does say "she thinks Kracker's sexy" so I'm probably wrong

    General CommentMy summer song <3
    It makes me think of somewhere hot, by a beach, in a hammock, chillin or sleeping all day, then getting ready to relax or party at night.
    I can seriously listen to this song and imagine it like I'm really there.

    My InterpretationIt's about vampires. They work best when the sun goes down, too.
