Well, I'm gonna raise a fuss
I'm gonna raise a holler 
'Bout workin' all summer 
Just to try to earn a dollar 
Well, I went to the boss man
 Tried to get a break 
But the boss said 'No dice, son,
You gotta work late'

 Sometimes I wonder what am I gonna do
'Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

Well, my Mom and Poppa told me
Son, you gotta earn some money 
If you want to use the care
To go riding next Sunday 
Well, I wouldn't go to work
I told the boss I was sick
He said 'You can't use the car
'Cause you didn't work a lick'

 Sometimes I wonder what am I gonna do
'Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

 Gonna take two weeks  Gonna have a fine vacation  Gonna take my problem 
To the United Nations
Well' I went to my congressman 
He said 'quote'
'I'd like to help you son,
But you're too young to vote'

 Sometimes I wonder what am I gonna do
'Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime blues
