[Hook]
Summer, summer, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind


[Verse 1]
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


[Hook]

[Verse 2]
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 sitting 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 aphrodisiac

And with a pen and pad I compose this rhyme
To hit you and get you equipped for the summer time


[Hook]

[Verse 3]
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 speed 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
