In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather's fine
You got women, you got women on your mind
Have a drink, have a drive 
Go out and see what you can find

If her daddy's rich take her out for a meal
If her daddy's poor just do what you feel
 Speed along the lane
Do a ton or a ton an' twenty-five
When the sun goes down
You can make it, make it good in a lay-by

We're no threat, people 
We're not dirty, we're not mean
We love everybody but we do as we please 
When the weather's fine
We go fishin' or go swimmin' in the sea
We're always happy
Life's for livin' yeah, that's our philosophy 

Sing along with us
Dee dee dee-dee dee
Dah dah dah-dah dah
Yeah we're hap-happy
Dah dah-dah
Dee-dah-do dee-dah-do dah-do-dah
Dah-do-dah-dah-dah
Dah-dah-dah do-dah-dah

Chh chh-chh, uh, Chh chh-chh, uh
Chh chh-chh, uh, Chh chh-chh

When the winter's here, yeah it's party time
 Bring your bottle, wear your bright clothes
It'll soon be summertime 
And we'll sing again 
We'll go drivin' or maybe we'll settle down
If she's rich, if she's nice
 Bring your friends and we'll all go into town

Chh chh-chh, uh, Chh chh-chh, uh

When the weather's fine
You got women, you got women on your mind
Have a drink, have a drive 
Go out and see what you can find

If her daddy's rich take her out for a meal
If her daddy's poor just do what you feel
 Speed along the lane
