"Summertime" as written by and Abdulsamad/atweh/wahlberg....
Jones Beach 1988.
Come on!

Do you remember,
Or should I rewind,
To that summer when you caught my eye,
I played it cool,
The weather was hot,
You had the beauty and the beach on lock.

With your flip flops, half shirt, short shorts, mini skirt,
Walkin' on the beach, so pretty,
You wasn't lookin' for a man,
When you saw me in the sand,
But you fell for the boy from the city.

I was like, "hey, girl, can I get your number?"
I remember what you told me too,
"Don't call after ten"
But you know that I did,
'Cause I couldn't stop thinkin' 'bout you.

I think about you in the summertime,
(Oh oh)
And all the good times we had, baby,
Been a few years and I can't deny,
(Oh oh)
The thought of you still makes me crazy,
I think about you in the summertime,
(Oh oh)
I'm sittin' here in the sun with you on my mind.
You're my, my summertime.

Do you remember,
I'll never forget,
Touchin' your body all soakin' wet,
The water was cool,
The feelin' was hot,
Kissin' on you while the ocean rocked.

In your strapless sundress,
Kickin' back, no stress,
As long as we was together,
'Cause we were feelin' young love,
And we couldn't get enough.
Baby, I could reminisce forever.

And now I'm like,
Hey, girl, don't you know I miss it,
And I wonder if you miss it too,
Never thought it would end 'till it did,
Now, I'm here and I can't stop thinkin' 'bout you.

I think about you in the summertime,
(Oh oh)
And all the good times we had, baby,
Been a few years and I can't deny,
(Oh oh)
The thought of you still makes me crazy,
I think about you in the summertime,
(Oh oh)
I'm sittin' here in the sun with you on my mind.
You're my, my summertime.

Break it down.

Summer ended,
Winter started,
It got colder,
When we parted ways,
(I like this part)
As the seasons change.
(Bring it forward, bring it back)
Winter melted,
Spring I felt it,
Summertime will never be the same,
(Without you, my summertime.)
My summertime.

I think about you in the summertime,
I think about you
(Oh oh)
And all the good times we had, baby,
We had baby
It's been a few years and I can't deny,
I can't deny
(Oh oh)
The thought of you still makes me crazy,
Makes me crazy
I think about you in the summertime,
(Oh oh)
I'm sittin' here in the sun with you on my mind.
On my mind,
My summertime.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh yeah.

    General Commentokay, i might be wrong, but this is just the way i took the song.
    when i first heard it, i heard it on the z[:
    i had been hanging out with this guy for a few months now, && i pretty much liked him.
    we've done tons of things together.
    so we were "talking" if you will.
    so when i heard this song, i deff. thought about him.
    && all the good times we've had.
    so this song, i guess, is about a couple that met.
    he really liked her, but at first, she didn't REALLY like him.
    after a while, she fell in love.
    && from that day they've been happy together.
    not just the summer, but everything else.
    the fall, winter, && spring.
    this is deff. an amazing couple song for the summertime.
    i love it.
    && it's deff. me && my amazing boyfriend's song together.
    please correct me if i'm wrong.
    :]

    General Comment2008 summer anthem fa sho!

    To me it's about a guy who had an unforgettable summer romance one year. but it was JUST a one time summer romance. and they never see each other but he thinks of her from time to time especially in connection with summer.And now I'm like,
    when he says,"Hey, girl, don't you know I miss it,
    And I wonder if you miss it too,
    Never thought it would end 'til it did,
    Now, I'm here and I can't stop thinkin' 'bout you.", that pretty much proves the relationship never went anywhere.

    goooood song:]

    General CommentSummer love.

    Simple enough, everyone's be through a summer fling, have fun all summer long and it just kinda fades away as summer ends. "Summer ended, winter started, it got colder, when we parted ways". When summer ended and they left each other, things got colder not just in the sense of weather.

    Good song.

    General Commentidntfcklosers WTF? Crack is bad for you! I know what you are trying to say but there is no way in hell this sounds like the music from bittersweet symphony, that song used a semi-classical string arangement and melody where as this song uses a synthesizer to create a breezy pop melody. OPEN YOUR EARS PEOPLE! Music is more than some catchy words and a couple instruments, and WAY more than the shenanegans (or lack thereof) of the artist ouside the studio. People learn to appreciate music for the composition.
