Lyrics Summertime

Here it is a 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 a groove that soothes and moves romance
Give me a soft subtle mix and if it ain't broke then don't try to fix it
And think of the summers of the past
Adjust the bass and let the Alpine blast
Pop in my CD and let me run around and put your car on cruise and lay back
'Cos this us summertime
School is out and it's a sort of a buzz
But 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
Ridin' around in your Jeep or your Benzos or in your Nissan sittin' on Lorenzos
Back in Philly we'd be out in the park
A place called the Plateau is where everybody goes
Guys out hunting and girls doin' likewise
Honkin' 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 composed this rhyme to hip you and to get you equipped for the summertime
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
'Cos basketball courts in the summer got girls there
The temperature's about eighty-eight
Hop in the water plug just for old times sake
Break to your crib change your clothes once more
'Cos you're invited to a barbecue that's startin' at four
Sitting with your friends as y'all reminisce about the days growin' up and the first person you kissed
And as I think back it makes me wonder how the smell from a girl can spark up nostalgia
All the kids playin' out front lil' boys messin' around with the girls playing double Dutch
While the DJ's spinnin' a tune as the old folks danced at your family reunion
Then six o'clock rolls around you just finished wipin' your car down
It's time to cool so you go to the summertime hang out 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 definition of summer madness
