"The Boys of Summer" as written by and Don/campbell Henley....
Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach

Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I drive by your house
I know you're not home

But I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your
Sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how I made you crazy?
Remember how you made me scream?
Now, I don't understand what's happened
To our love
But, baby, when I get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
I see you walking real slow
And you're smiling at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today
I saw a deadhead sticker on a cadillac
A little voice inside my head said
"Don't look back, you can never look back."
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but

I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got the top pulled down and the radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You've got your hair slicked back and
Those wayfarers on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone
