--- LYRICS (words) ---

                 Let me tell you all about the new girl I found. 
                   She's the hottest thing there is.
                   She makes my heart a-pound.
                  
                Freckle[d] face, her eyes are green, her hair as red as fire.
                  Gyrating as she walks,   
                  she fills me with desire. 
                                       
                                              Loidy baby.
                                              They're driving me crazy.
                                              Those hazy, lazy days of July.                                        
                                         
                                   When we strolled down the rainy beach;   
                                   the clouds loomed near as we strove to reach.  
                                     The seagulls gathered in the mist. 
                                     Expecting us, a lovers' tryst.                              
          
                                            
                                     Met my glance with a stare so deep.  
                                     If what you sow is what you reap,
                                       invited me to stay awhile,
                                       and be her cozy crocodile.   
                                       
                Don't touch that button if you're not prepared to rock.
                  Can't open up that door 
                  until you've made it knock.                                  
                     
                In a  bathing suit so amply filled, she's well endowed. 
                  Agriculture never looked so good.  
                  That furrow's plowed.    
                                           
                          Summer lasts the entire year.  
                          The drought has made obsolete the tear.  
                            Unusual one's flag unfurled. 
                            Typical this part of the world.
                                                                   
                         She held my hand and it seemed so right.  
                         What's down is up, what's black is white. 
                           From acorns spring the mighty oak.
                           My sleeping beauty has awoke.

Verse 2.  Freckle[d]
                      face, her eyes are green, her hair as
                      red as fire.  Gy-

                      with desire.

 

        -  CHORUS -
                                        (G) Loidy
                                        (A) baby.  They're
                                        (D) driving me

                                        (D) ly.

 

Bridge a.  (Dmin6)  When we strolled down the rainy beach; the  
                          (G7)              clouds loomed near as we strove to reach.  The
                   (Amin9)     seagulls gathered
                   (Amin7)         in the mist.  Ex-
                   (Gmin7/F)     pecting us, a

                                            crocodile.

 

Verse 3.  Don't
                        touch that button if you're not pre-

                        made it knock.

 

Verse 4.  In a
                     bathing suit so amply filled, she's
                     well endowed.  Agri-

                     furrow's plowed.

 

- CHORUS -
        
Bridge c.         Summer lasts the entire year.  The

                             usual one's
                                  flag unfurled.  Ty-
                                  pical this part
                                  of the world.

 

Bridge d.        She held my hand and it seemed so right.  What's 
                                  down is up, what's black is white.  From
                            acorns spring the
                                mighty oak.  My
                                sleeping beauty
                                has awoke.
