Ridin round town with all the windows down
Eight track playin all your favorite sounds
The rhythm of the bongos fill the park
The street musicians tryin to get a start

Cause it's summer
Summer time is here
Yes it's summer
My time of year
Yes it's summer
My time of year

Stretched out on a blanket in the sand
Kids of all ages diggin Disneyland
Rappin on the C.B. radio in your van
We'll give a big "10-4" to the truckin man

Cause it's summer
Summer time is here
Yes it's summer
My time of year
Yes it's summer
My time of year

Young boys playin stick ball in the street
Fire hydrants help to beat the heat
Old man feeding pigeons in the square
Nighttime finds young lovers walking there

Cause it's summer
Summer time is here
Yes it's summer
My time of year
Yes it's summer
My time of year

In Atlantic City or out in Malibu
Or any where between, I'm telling you
When you feel those balmy breezes on your face
Summer time is the best time any place

Cause it's summer
Summer time is here
Yes it's summer
My time of year
Yes it's summer
My time of year

These were the days of great sounds
Ah summer. It's June and 105, heat index expected to be around 115. War can keep their summer.
instant flashback to summer of 1998 when I was a 21 year old pizza delivery guy with an awesome car stereo, not just bass but amazing high end, blasting this tune while cruising the streets.  The WAR greatest hits CD also featured a few other of my favorites, of course the super popular "Low Rider" and "Why can't We be Friends?" and the lesser known "Cinco de Mayo" and maybe my all-time favorite of WAR: "Life (is so strange)"

9 for this track, 10 for the memories, and off the charts for RP; LLRP!!
Such a chill song, way back then

Gotta be the lowest rated tune on RP!?



It must have come up over the past 13 years...
Love the groove. 
so many great jams from these guys. Me and Baby Brother, Cisco, World is a Ghetto,  Galaxy and on and on
Lee Oscar!
Wow, this is a nice one. My first thought was, "Huh, sounds like War.", and was delighted to find out I was right. The song nicely captures the warm cosy feel of summer, but also the great feeling of peace that happens over Christmas when family gets together.
Hahaha—it is the last moment if “Summer” for me…the little ones go back to school tomorrow, and the same for me.
"Eight track playin...." Wow, digging deep into history :)
It cruises ok, lacks guts, too wishy washy for my taste. Instrumentation is grand, not smooth like big brass bands with Herb Albert, or Tijuana Brass!!
Gotta be the lowest rated tune on RP!?
A real way-backer.....nice...
