Summer girls come and summer girls go
I get stuck with the Catholics stick with the hoes
They all come a-knockin', you don't even know
But it's gettin' kinda late and I gotta go

Back to my hometown born and raised
All the kids are off at school gettin' jobs that pay
More than writing these songs for you
But it's gettin' kinda late and it's all I know how to do
know how to do

Your eyes move across the room
And find their way to me
So I'll just smile and look away
And lead you on another day
Don't stay the same
You're dying to believe the words I wrote down were for you
But you were wrong, you're never wrong, s-s-summer girl
S-s-summer girl

I quit saving money and I spent it all
I bought a tape recorder and some alcohol
I spent a couple of weeks with the friends I need
This old guitar and these piano keys

And the songs that got locked in this room
Like girls that haven't heard these tunes
She said, "Would you come to my room?"
"No, thanks, I think I'm leaving soon."

So try your best to make me stop and wonder
Give me your worst to make me stay tonight

Your eyes move across the room
And find their way to me
So I'll just smile and look away
And lead you on another day
Don't stay the same
You're dying to believe the words I wrote down were for you
But you were wrong, you're never wrong, summer girl
Summer girl

Some girls came and some girls went
But it's the summer girls I won't forget, s-s-summer girl

Your eyes move across the room
And find their way to me
So I'll just smile and look away
And lead you on another day
Don't stay the same
You're dying to believe the words I wrote down were for you
But you were wrong, you're never wrong (x2)
Summer girl
