About Summertime

"Summertime" is a song by American singer Beyoncé featuring American rapper P. Diddy. "Summertime" was written by Beyoncé, Angela Beyincé, P. Diddy, Steven "Steven J." Jordan, Adonis Shropshire, Varick "Smitty" Smith and Mario Winans, while production was handled by Winans and P. Diddy. The song was later remixed to feature vocals from American rapper Ghostface Killah. "Summertime" was included on the soundtrack album for the film The Fighting Temptations (2003), in which Beyoncé played the lead female role. The original version of the song was released as a B-side to "Crazy in Love" in the UK and Australia, while it was issued as a 12-inch vinyl single in the United States through Columbia Records. "Summertime" is an R&B song which lyrically refers to falling in love. Music critics generally complimented Beyoncé's vocals in the song and noted that it could have been included on her debut studio album, Dangerously in Love (2003). The song also charted on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in late 2003. The original version featuring P. Diddy and the remix version featuring Ghostface Killah peaked at number thirty-five and at number fifty-one respectively on the chart. Both versions charted for forty consecutive weeks. "Summertime" was part of Beyoncé's set list during the Dangerously in Love Tour (2003), and the Verizon Ladies First Tour (2004).

Out of all the guys that approach me
Walking up to me like they know me
You were the one that stayed aside
Waited a while and took your time
You don't know how impressing
Your curiosity was to me
It was the fourth day of July
Looked in my eyes and saw that I

I wanted more than just a man
I needed a friend
Someone I can talk to, someone who really listens
When you touched my hand, the sun got brighter then
Trusting you, I closed my eyes and felt our love begin

It was the summertime 
When we fell in love, it was the summertime 
Heaven shined on us; it was the summertime 
Baby, there is nothing like the summertime
Summertime

Now it's been a year and we're closer
Fall in love again when I hold ya
I know that God set you aside for me
And now you are my prize
Wanna grow old wit'cha
And fill our house with your pictures
Have a son for you
A little girl for me
Together we'll raise a family

Baby, you're more than just a man
You are my best friend
Someone I can talk to, someone who really listens
When you touched my hand, the sun got brighter then
Trusting you, I closed my eyes and felt our love begin

It was the summertime
When we fell in love, it was the summertime
Heaven shined on us; it was the summertime
Baby, there is nothing like the summertime
Summertime

It was the summertime
When we fell in love, it was the summertime
Heaven shined on us; it was the summertime
Baby, there is nothing like the summertime
Summertime
