Jonathan Richman – That Summer Feeling lyrics

That summer feeling That summer feeling
That summer feeling

When there’s things to do not because you gotta

When you run for love not because you oughtta

When you trust your friends with no reason ta nada

This joy I’ve named shall not be tamed

That summer feeling is gonna haunt you

The rest of your life.

When the cool of the pond makes you drop down on it

When the smell of the lawn makes you flop down on it

When the teenage car gets the cop down on it

That time is here for one more year

That summer feeling’s gonna haunt you

The rest of your life.

If you’ve forgotten what I’m naming

You’re gonna long to reclaim it one day

You see that summer feeling is gonna haunt you

The rest of your life.

But if you wait until your older

A sad resentment will smoulder one day

And Then the summer feeling will come haunt you

And that summer feeling will come taunt you

That summer feeling will hurt you

Later in your life.

When the playground that just was all dirt

Comes hauntin

And someone who called you a flirt

Comes tauntin

It’s not that these things alone

Were appealin

What I now revealin is a certain feelin

That summer feeling is gonna haunt you

The rest of your life.

When the Oldsmobile has got the top down on it

When the catamaran has got the drop down on it

When the flat of the land has got the crop down on it

What I now proclaim is sortta hard to name

But that summer feeling is gonna haunt you

The rest of your life.

When even fourth grade starts looking good

Which you hated,

And first grade’s looking good too,

Overrated,

And you boys long for some little girl

That you dated

Do you long for her of for the way you were,

That summer feeling is gonna haunt you

The rest of your life.

It’s gonna haunt you

It’s gonna taunt you
