"Almost Summer" as written by and Brian Douglas/love Wilson....
Lemon gin, corn fields plowed under
Cigarettes, Southern Comfort
With your friends behind the bleachers, it's my first dance
He's gonna beat it in the high school gym

It's almost summer, almost warm enough to swim
Backyards are waiting

He's got your name, he's got your number
He's got your name, he's got your number

The sun sets across the parking lot
Walking cool with your friends
Before the ready cops even know you're in the sand
The night is waiting

Here he comes, you're a little nervous
Here he comes, well, you're getting up the courage, yeah

The music sucks
But he's your salvation
Cherry lip gloss, and you're what he's tasting, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You're in his car getting high
Pair of fuzzy dice by the dashboard light
Super toke, gets smoke in his eyes
Your head is swimming with the anticipation and suddenly

You're puking out the door with your pants around your knees
But he's a nice boy so he drops you on your street
I can't believe it
Looks like you blew it

He's got your name, he's got your number
He's driving away, I want to bomb her yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

So you stumble home
But you don't quite make it
You wake up on the lawn
Of your next-door neighbors
The sun is warm

It's almost summer, yeah

    General Commentthis is wrong...

    he's gonna be there, not he's gonna beat it...
    avoid the rent-a-cops, not before the ready cops
    you can't believe it, not I,
    ahh what a bummer, not I want to bomb her

    General CommentA little too many errors for my liking..

    Lemon gin,
    Corn fields ploughed under.
    Cigarettes,
    Southern Comfort.
    With your friends,
    Behind the bleachers,
    Tonight there's a dance..
    He’s gonna be there,
    In the high school gym

    And it’s almost summer, almost warm enough to swim.
    Backyards are waiting.

    He’s got your name; he’s got your number
    He’s got your name; he’s got your number

    The sun sets across the parking lot,
    walking cool with your friends -
    Avoid the rent-a-cops even though you're innocent,
    The night is waiting.

    Here he comes; you’re a little nervous
    Here he comes; well, you’re getting up the courage, yeah.

    The music sucks,
    But he’s your salvation
    Cherry lip gloss,
    And you’re what he’s tasting,
    Yeah, Yeah yeah yeah

    You’re in his car getting high,
    Pair of fuzzy dice by the dashboard light.
    Super toke, gets smoke in his eyes,
    Your head is swimming
    With the anticipation, and suddenly,
    You’re puking out the door with your pants around your knees,
    But he’s a nice boy so he drops you on your street.

    You can’t believe it,
    Looks like you blew it.

    He’s got your name; he’s got your number
    He’s driving away; Ahh, what a bummer
    Yeah, yeah yeah
    Yeah, yeah yeah

    So you stumble home,
    But you don’t quite make it
    You wake up on the lawn
    Of your next door neighbors.
    The sun is warm,

    It’s almost summer, yeah
    It's almost summer, yeah
    It's almost summer, yeah
    It's almost summer, yeah
    It's almost summer, yeah
    It's almost summer, yeah
    It's almsot summer, yeah
    It's almost summer, yeah.

    General Commentthe first version I heard had Jason explaining the story of this song before he sang it.
    it was so funny

    I love this. Especially when he sings "and youre what he's tasting"
    And the guitar is so so pretty
