Mungo Jerry

Mungo Jerry is a British rock group whose greatest success was in the early 1970s, though they have continued throughout the years with an ever-changing line-up, always fronted by Ray Dorset. They are remembered above all for their hit "In the Summertime". It remains their most successful and most instantly recognisable song, and their only hit outside of the UK. Their name was inspired by the poem "Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer", from T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. According to Joseph Murrell's The Book of Golden Discs (1978), "Mungomania" was possibly the most startling and unpredicted pop phenomenon to hit Britain since The Beatles. more »

In the summertime when the weather's high,
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 as you feel.
Speed along the land,
Do a ton, or a ton and twenty five.
When the sun goes down, you can make it,
Make it good in a lay-by.

We're not grey 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 fishing or go swimming in the sea.
We're always happy,
Live's for living, yeah, that's our philosophy.

Sing along with us, dee-dee-dee-dee-dee.
Da-da-da-da-da...
Yeah, we're happy happy, da-da-da-da-dah.
When the winter's here, then it's party time.
Bring a 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 you're friends and we'll all go into town.
