Heat waves boiling
and New York's a jungle
Lovers wanted
Coked up night companion
I wipe the sweat from my face

In the summertime
I fear I'm gonna lose my mind

But she's always avoiding falling in love
Yes, it's due to a life of a private affair
She's always avoiding falling in love
Yes, it's due to a life of a private affair

Curtains clap and thrown open window
Eyes are watching
Neon lights, the cracks in the pavement lure me away

In the summertime
I fear I'm gonna lose my mind

But she's always avoiding falling in love
Yes, it's due to a life of a private affair
She's always avoiding falling in love
Yes, it's due to a life of a private affair

I was a playboy from Dubai to Paris
She wore a necklace made of pharaohs bones
Made our acquaintance on a sheet less mattress
She pressed my lips, she said this won't last long

But she's always avoiding falling in love
Yes, it's due to a life of a private affair
She's always avoiding falling in love
Yes, it's due to a life of a private affair
She's always avoiding falling in love
Yes, it's due to a life of a private affair
She's always avoiding falling in love
Yes, it's due to a life of a private affair

    General CommentI believe that the beginning lyrics are...

    Heat waves boiling
    New York's a jungle
    Lovers wanted.

    Coked up night
    Companion to wipe the sweat from my face
    In the summertime
    I fear I'm gonna lose my mind.

    But she's always avoided falling in love
    Yes it's due to a life of a private affair (x2)

    Great song! I love The Virgins :)
