"Summer Babe" as written by and S. Kannberg S. Malkmus....
Ice baby
I saw your girlfriend and she was
Eating her fingers, just another meal
But she waits there in the levee wash
Mixin' cocktails with a plastic tipped cigar

My eyes stick to all the shiny robes
She wears on the protein delta strip
In abandoned house but I will wait there
I'll be waitin' forever

Waitin'
Waitin'
Waitin'
Waitin', go

Minerals, ice deposits daily, drop off
The first shiny robe
I've got a lot of freinds, I, I want
Not here, babe, you took 'em

Every time, I sit around, I find I'm shot
Every time, I sit around, I find I'm shot
Every time, I sit around
Every time, I sit around

Every time, every time
Every time, every time
Every time
You're my

Summer babe
Summer babe
Summer babe
Summer babe

    Ice baby,
    I saw your girlfriend and she was
    eating her fingers like they're just another meal
    But she waits there
    In the levee wash
    mixing cocktails with a plastic-tipped cigar

    My eyes stick
    To all the shiny robes
    You wear on the protein delta strip
    In an abandoned houseboat, I will wait there
    I'll be waiting forever
    I'm waiting waiting waiting waiting
    Go!

    Minerals, ice deposits daily
    Drop off the first shiny robe
    I've got a lot of things
    I want to sell but
    not here, babe
    you took 'em all

    Every time I sit around I find I'm shot
    Every time I sit around I find I'm shot
    Every time I sit around
    Every time I sit around
    Every time, every time, every time, every time...

    You're my summer babe
    Summer babe

    General CommentGreat song from the classic 'Slanted & Enchanted' album. Stephen Malkmus is a genius.
