"Summer Of Love" as written by and Sally/slavik,/kemmler,/loehr, Oldfield....
I thought about my scene today
And I've finally got the words to say
The truth is cutting like a knife
Gonna use it to cut away my strife
The grass is green and the sky is blue
My head is clear and my thoughts are true, yeah
that's what I'm sayin'
Callin' out young and old
We got a thing that can't be sold
The time it takes to rise above
In the summer of love
It's the summer of love I say
I wake up each day to the sun
And it's hard to chose what to do for fun (and man that's a drag)
A blissful world surrounds me
And my brothers and sisters love is always free
Don't you know that I've waited my whole life
Just to show what's inside and let my love flow
That's what I'm sayin'
Callin' out young and old
We got a thing that can't be sold
The time it takes to rise above
In the summer of love
It's the summer of love I say
I declare by the power vested in me
This is the summer of love and unity
Oh I say by the power vested in me
This is the summer of love and unity
I declare by the power vested in me
This is the summer of love and unity
Oh I declare by the power vested in me
This is the summer of love and unity
Oh I declare by the power vested in me
It is the summer of love
It's the summer of love I say

    General Commentmaybe my favorite 311 song of all time. this song is before any record companies and money was involved in the band. this is 311 being themselves and singing about the jots of summer. amazing live as well

    General CommentThe colors blend down the prism of light, boom
    We get chance (turn the prism inside??)
    said the colors blend down the prism of light, come along
    we get chance (turn the prism inside??)
    we cant say we came from the sun
    we cant see, we came from the sun
    this is the summer of unity, uh-oh
    I riggity (?) so gimme a chance
    to take off my pants and play
    I take up the time to make up a rhyme
    and give me the sign to say
    happy and (?) will crystal in sight
    (??), right
    The colors blend down the prism of light, boom
    We get chance (turn the prism inside??)
    said the colors blend down the prism of light, come along
    we get chance (turn the prism inside??)
    oh, I say by the power vested in me
    it is the summer of love, oh
