Oh, I still remember "Regulate" with Warren G.
Could that have been back in the sweet summer of 1993?
It was a sweet summer's night on Hammer Hill.

Oh, the sound of distant carnival drums,
The spanish guitar someone strums,
It's a sweet summer's night on Hammer Hill.

My heart goes like:
Bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp!
Can you hear the beat of my heart?
Bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp!
Can you hear the beat of my heart?
Bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp!

Oh, the memories come a streamin'
When I'm walking 'round here dreamin'
It's a sweet summer's night on Hammer Hill.
Oh, the memories come a streamin'
When I'm walking 'round here dreamin'
It's a sweet summer's night on Hammer Hill.

My heart goes like:
Bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp!
Can you hear the beat of my heart?
Bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp!
Can you hear the beat of my heart?
Bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp!

Oh no! Oh no!
Oh no! Oh no!
Oh no no no no no...

Oh no! Oh no!
Oh no! Oh no!
Oh no no no no no...

Oh no! Oh no!
Oh no! Oh no!
Oh no no no no no...

Oh no no no!
It's coming back to me.
Oh no no no!
It's coming back to me.
Oh no no no!
It's coming back to me.
It's a sweet summer's night on Hammer Hill.

My heart goes like:
Bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp!
Can you hear the beat of my heart?
Bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp!
Can you hear the beat of my heart?
Bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp-a-bomp.....

    General Comment"Regulate" actually came out in 1994. I like the purposefully wrong date. It adds to the idea that he's wistfully recalling the past.

    Not to mention that this song is just plain fun.

    General CommentI got stuck in a Computer Graphics class during highschool and we had to create a slide show of a realllllllly lame/boring/terrible/dull grad fashion show that had a total of 30 people present. I added this song as the audio and made an entirely dismal event look fun. And that's the thing about this song, and many other Jens Lekman songs- listening to this song is fun. It adds a good time to anything

    General Commentman. I totally thought he was saying

    "Oh, the memories come a streamin'
    When I'm walking 'round in Greenland'
    It's a sweet summer's night on Hammer Hil"

    I like my version better. Greenland's awesome.

    this song was so fun/interactive in concert.. we got to sing the heart-noises.
