Lyrics

[Here's another new song about the morning, we're gonna and try to describe the mood of the summer morning now
You know the summer?]

I was just walking along on summer morning
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
I love these smells, these smells of the dawning
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
As the sun would rise beyond the trees (as the sun would rise)
They were still dark and they were still wet
In the morning breeze

I was walking along in the summer in the morning
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
I smelt the ??? the smells of the dawning
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
And the sun would rise in beyond the trees (and the sun would rise)
They were still cool they were still dark
In the morning breeze

This summer smells so good
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
This summer it smells so fine
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
As the sun does rise beyond the trees (as the sun did rise)
They're still cool they're still dark
In the morning breeze

One more time
When the sun does rise beyond the trees (when the sun does rise)
They're still wet, they're still shady
In the morning breeze

You know ??? still wet
Little breeze smells so sweet
??? Pretty
I want to tell about this summer morning

I was just

Now I was just

Well

Now now I was just walking along on a summer morning
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
Smelling the smells and the feel of the dawn
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
As the sun did rise beyond the trees
It was still dawn ???

This summer morning ???
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
And it makes me feel so fine so fine
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
???, When the sun did rise back from the trees
??? Still cool, it's still wet in the morning breeze

???

This summer smells so good
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
This summer smells so fine, to me
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
As the sun did rise on the back of the trees
Yeah they're still cool, they're still shady in the breeze

Just as the sun did rise above the trees
Now they're still wet and still dark in the morning breeze

Lyrics

You know, I was just walking around on this summer morning
And the summer breeze was there
And the sounds ???
???
And I felt alive in the morning
Feeling all right because I love so
I love spring and I love fall
But I love summer
I love the sound of the trees in the early morning
The smell of the breeze in the early dawning
I love summer
I love summer
And I have

I

You know band I was just

I was just walking alone on the summer morning,
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
I was feeling those feelings and smelling that dawning
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
And the sun did rise beyond the trees
They were still wet and they were still dark in this morning breeze

The summer smells so good
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
And it made me feel so fine
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
As the sun did rise beyond the trees
Well They were still cool and shady in the breeze

This summer smells so good, you know
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
And it's made me feel like ??? so fine
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey

Well now they were still cool and shady in the breeze
As the sun does rise beyond the trees
Well they were still cool and shady in the breeze

Thank you

Lyrics

It was a summer morning,
And I was just walking alone,
And the air smelt sweet to me

I love each season of the year
But that smell of summer
Makes me feel so fine

You know, I was just

I was

I was just walking alone on the summer morning, I promise
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
I was smelling those smells and loving that dawning
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
As the sun did rise beyond the sea
Now they were cool and still shady in the breeze

This summer smells so good
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
And it makes me feel so fine
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
Well the sun does rise beyond the sea
Well They're still cool and they're still shady in the breeze

This summer smells so good
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
And it's makes me feel so thrilled
Bop-she-bop-she-bop-hey-hey
Well as the sun does rise beyond the sea
They're still cool and shady in the breeze
As the sun does rise beyond the trees
Well they're still cool and shady in the breeze

Apeldoorn

Lyrics

[I don't know how long you want to hear me tonight
But if you want to hear me for a little while
The people who want to smoke should move back a little
Because it hurts my throat and I can't sing too good
You see I sing even worse than I do now
So people who are smoking, if you wouldn't mind, moving back
I'll be able to sing a little longer and I won't have to quit so soon]

Well I was walking around on a summer morning
There was A breeze in the dawnin'
And the trees smelt sweet to me
I love all the seasons
But that smell and that summer

I was just walking around on a summer morning
I was smelling those smells and loving that dawning
And the sun did rise beyond the trees
Well they were still cool and they were still dark
In the morning breeze

This summer it smells so good
And it makes me feel, so fine
When the sun does rise beyond the trees
(I love that time)
When it's still cool
When it's still shady
In the morning breeze

This summer it smells so good
And it makes me feel, so fine
When the sun does rise beyond the trees
Which are still cool
And they're still shady
In the breeze

Well now
When the sun does rise beyond the trees
Well they're still cool
And shady
In the breeze

Lyrics

Well I was just walking alone on a summer morning
Well I was smelling those smells, enjoying that dawning

And the sun did rise beyond the trees
When they were still cool, and they were still wet in the morning dew

Well this summer it smells so good
And it makes me feel so fine

As the sun does rise beyond the trees
They're still cool, and they're still shady

This summer it smells so good
And it makes me feel so fine

As the sun does rise beyond the trees
They're cool and they're still dark in the morning
