"Summer Nights" as written by and Jim/casey Jacobs....
Summer loving had me a blast
Summer loving happened so fast
I met a girl crazy for me
Met a boy cute as can be
Summer days drifting away to oh oh the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car

She swam by me she got a cramp
He swam by me got my suit damp
I saved her life she nearly drown
He showed off splashing around
Summer sun something's begun but oh oh the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
Was it love at first sight?
Tell me more, tell me more
Did she put up a fight?

Took her bowling in the arcade
We went strolling drank lemonade
We made out under the dock
We stayed out till ten o'clock
Summer fling don't mean a thing but oh oh the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
But you don't gotta brag
Tell me more, tell me more
Cause he sounds like a drag

He got friendly holding my hand
She got friendly down in the sand
He was sweet just turned eightteen
Well she was good you know what I mean
Summer heat boy and girl meet but oh oh the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
How much dough did he spend?
Tell me more, tell me more
Could she get me a friend?

It turned colder that's where it ends
So I told her we'd still be friends
Then we made our true love vow
Wonder what she's doing now

Summer dreams ripped at the seams but oh those summer nights
Tell me more, tell me more

    General CommentWhat makes you think she's telling the truth? Sounds more like the girl has an idealised ultra-romantic slightly rediculous version of events, wheras yeah he's just trying to look big in front of the lads.

    General CommentWell, if you've seen the movie...she's telling the truth and he lied about it to look cool in front of his friends. Although partially he was lying to her over the summer to win her over.

    Anyone, this is my number one kareoke song. Fabulous.

    General CommentI think Comrade_Liar got it just about right. There are always three sides to any story: HIS side, HER side, and the TRUTH. Sure, he's stretching the truth quite a bit, but she's romanticizing/idealizing it some as well.

    Big fan of this movie, big fan of the song, and it's the song that got my wife and I ento Karaoke. But that's more than you wanted to know, I'm sure ...

    General CommentI can't help but wonder whether the double meaning of "It turned colder" was intended.

    The weather turned colder - after all, it's about an affair that happened in the summer.

    And the relationship turned colder.

    Good if they've managed to stay friends in any case.
