Summer summer summertime Time to sit back and unwind Here it is the groove slightly transformed Just a bit of a break from the norm Just a little somethin' to break the monotony Of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be A little bit out of control it's cool to dance But what about the groove that soothes that moves romance Give me a soft subtle mix And if ain't broke then don't try to fix it And think of the summers of the past Adjust the base and let the alpine blast Pop in my CD and let me run a rhyme And put your car on cruise and lay back 'cause this is summertime Summer summer summertime Time to sit back and unwind Summer summer summertime Time to sit back and unwind Summer summer summertime Time to sit back and unwind School is out and it's a sort of a buzz A back then I didn't really know what it was But now I see what have of this The way that people respond to summer madness The weather is hot and girls are dressing less And checking out the fellas to tell 'em who's best Riding around in your Jeep or your Benzos Or in your Nissan stting on Lorenzos Back in Philly we be out in the park A place called the plateau is where everybody goes Guys out hunting and girls doing likewise Honking at the honey in front of you with the light eyes She turn around to see what you beeping at It's like the summer's a natural afradesiac And with a pen and pad I compose this rhyme To hit you and get you equipped for the summer time Summer summer summertime Time to sit back and unwind Summer summer summertime Time to sit back and unwind Summer summer summertime Time to sit back and unwind It's late in the day and I ain't been on the court yet Hustle to the mall to get me a short set Yeah I got on sneaks but I need a new pair 'Cause basketball courts in the summer got girls there The temperature's about 88 Hop in the water plug just for old times sake Break to ya crib change your clothes once more 'Cause you're invited to a barbeque that's starting at 4 Sitting with your friends cause y'all remincise About the days growing up and the first person you kiss And as I think back makes me wonder how The smell from a grill could spark up nostalgia All the kids playing out front Little boys messin' round with the girls playing double-dutch While the DJ's spinning a tune as the old folks dance at your family reunion Then six o'clock rolls around You just finished wiping your car down It's time to cruise so you head to the summertime hangout It looks like a car show Everybody come lookin' real fine Fresh from the barber shop or fly from the beauty salon Every moment frontin' and maxin' Chillin' in the car they spent all day waxin' Leanin' to the side but you can't spead through Two miles an hour so everybody sees you There's an air of love and of happiness And this is the Fresh Prince's new defintion' of summer madness Summer summer summertime Time to sit back and unwind Summer summer summertime Time to sit back and unwind Summer summer summertime Time to sit back and unwind
