lyrics

Summertime and we gotta get out 
Of the stuffy musty nasty house
So we go down to the creek 
Where little fish nibble at your feet
And make you scream and make you holler
Make you jump out of the water
You dry off then you're hot again
So you put your hair up and jump back in

A wild run of salmon and bass
And fried lake trout come swimming pass
And pull you in the current quick
And swim off smoother than an oil slick
You grew a tail and shiny skin
Scales and gills and Arturo fins
And now you hang out with your fish friends
And you're never gonna have to poop in a ditch again

I seen leeches on beaches and private eyes
Hair and Nair on American thighs
I seen jumbo jets and little birds
Dropping turds like two cent words
I seen the good get better and the bad get worse
I seen dragonflies mating on shepherd's purse
I seen government spying through a satellite dish
But I never seen a woman turn into a fish

Summertime and I gotta get cool 
And I got no AC and I got no pool
So I go down where the water flows
Something starts kissing on my toes
It's the prettiest fish I ever seen
With big brown eyes looking coy at me
And before I can wonder who it is
It's gone to do it's fishy biz
