Janes Addiction, "Summertime Rolls"

It's seriously hot out there... this song always cools me down. Makes me feel like I'm on a wave. Go sit in a dark, air conditioned room, close your eyes, listen to it, and think of the beach. Lyrics below.



Fell into
A sea of grass
And disappeared among
The shady blades...
The children all
Ran over me
Screaming tag!
You are the one!

He trips her as
Her sandals fail
She says stop!
I'm a girl...
Whose fingernails are made
Of a mother's pearl...
Yellow buttercup
Helicopters
Orange buttercat
Chasing after
The crazy bee
Mad about somebody
Oh no...

Me and my girlfriend
Don't wear no shoes
Her nose is painted pepper
Sunlight...
She loves me
I mean it's serious
As serious can be...

Well, she sings a song and
I listen to what it says:
If you want a friend
Feed any animal...
There was so much space
I cut me a piece
With some fine wine
It brought peace to my mind
In the summertime...
And it rolled
Summer.... ohhhh...
Oh, oh, oh... the summertime rolls
Summer.... ohhhh...
Oh, oh, oh... the summertime rolls
Oh Summer.... Yeah, yeah yeah...
Oh, oh, oh... summertime rolls
Summer.... Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
Oh, oh, oh... summertime rolls

Me and my girlfriend
Don't wear no clothes ya know,
Her nose is a pepper sunlight...
I love her
And me, it so so serious
As serious can be...
