"Summertime" as written by Steve Mc Ewan and Craig Wiseman....
Summertime is finally here
That old ballpark, man, is back in gear
Out on forty nine
Man I can see the lights

School's out and the nights roll in
Man, just like a long lost friend
You ain't seen in a while
And can't help but smile

And it's two bare feet on the dashboard
Young love and an old Ford
Cheap shades and a tattoo
And a Yoo-Hoo bottle on the floorboard

Perfect song on the radio
Sing along 'cause it's one we know
It's a smile, it's a kiss
It's a sip of wine, it's summertime
Sweet summertime

Temperature says ninety three
Down at the Deposit and Guarantee
But that swimmin' hole
It's nice and cold

Bikini bottoms underneath
But the boys' hearts still skip a beat
When them girls shimmy off
Them old cutoffs

And it's two bare feet on the dashboard
Young love and an old Ford
Cheap shades and a tattoo
And a Yoo-Hoo bottle on the floorboard

Perfect song on the radio
Sing along 'cause it's one we know
It's a smile, it's a kiss
It's a sip of wine, it's summertime
Sweet summertime

The more things change
The more they stay the same
Don't matter how old you are
When you know what I'm talkin' 'bout
Yeah baby when you got

Two bare feet on the dashboard
Young love and an old Ford
Cheap shades and a tattoo
And a Yoo-Hoo bottle rollin' on the floorboard

Perfect song on the radio
Sing along 'cause it's one we know
It's a smile, it's a kiss
It's a sip of wine, it's summertime
Sweet summertime

    General CommentI can see a lot of my summers in this song - playing baseball, drinking wine and listening to the radio, the Yoo-hoo bottle (I had an addiction in high school), wearing a bathing suit under my clothes to go swimming...the song is supposed to invoke old memories, and it does...nice job, Mr. Chesney.

    General CommentFrom beginning to end--pure greatness. Even just the way Kenny hits that high note in the word Yoo-hoo gives me a kind of chill

    General CommentNo, it's perfect song. I used to think it was her favorite song, too. Listen a little closer next time, you'll see that it's perfect song.

    General CommentI always thought it was favorite song also but I always thought it sounded really strange. Makes sense now. The P is a bit silent though. Doesn't take away from the fact that this is an amazing song.
