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.

That summer feeling That summer feeling
That summer feeling

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.
(That summer feeling That summer feeling)
but if you wait until your older
A sad resentment will smolder 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.

That summer feeling That summer feeling
That summer feeling

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.

That summer feeling That summer feeling
That summer feeling

What time? Well, just me!
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.

That summer feeling That summer feeling
That summer feeling

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.

That summer feeling That summer feeling
That feeling's gonna haunt you
That summer feeling That summer feeling
That feeling's gonna taunt you
That summer feeling That summer feeling
That summer feeling That summer feeling
That summer feeling

Echo Lounge

Lyrics

thank you

That summer feeling

When there's things to do not because you gotta do them

When there's things to do not because you gotta
When you run for the love of running not because you're supposed ta
When you trust your friends because so far life has given you no reason not to trust them (you must be no older than five)
The joy I've named shall not be tamed
And that summer feeling is gonna haunt you
One day in your life.

Well when the playground that just was all dirt
Comes a haunting.
And the little girl that called you a flirt on the playground
her Memory comes a taunting
it's not one memory but one that's necessarily appealing
you connect five or six together and you'll get this certain feeling
that summer feeling is gonna haunt you
One day in your life.
that feeling oh oh

that summer feeling

Live At Davis

Lyrics

Hi! okay. Uh Oh what's this? Has Jonathan gone crazy? He's taking requests from the audience! That summer feeling came first. Another song that starts with the letter i came about 15 or 17 years too late.

That summer feeling, that summer feeling, that summer feeling

folks, we are saying [?] what Jonathan what? I'll tell you. I'll tell you, but second grade teacher said one time. Like she was at the blackboard right. And she's out there ??? and I say "Miss LaRosa" I think you're doing the problem wrong on the board and she ignores me. It's about the first or second week in second grade. and she keeps like standing there at the blackboard and looking like that and I say "Miss Larosa I think it's wrong!" And she just ignores me ??? and I say "Miss LaRosa! Can't you" like I didn't raise my hand or anything "Miss LeRosa can't you hear me?" ??? "Jonathan, in my sleep I hear you!" true story. True story. Third grade was even worse ??? you know, I didn't realize I was a discipline problem. I didn't know what they were getting so upset about.

when there's things to do just because you gotta
when you run for love you know not because you oughta

and that summer feeling is going to haunt you one day in your life

That summer feeling, that summer feeling, that summer feeling

if you're not sure what it is I'm now naming when I say summer feeling
you are going to long to reclaim it one day
because the summer feeling is going to haunt you one day in your life

That summer feeling, that summer feeling,

but if you wait until you're older
sad resentment will smoulder one day
and then this feeling I'm trying to tell you about is going to haunt you
and then this feeling, like you know when you were a little kid in the summer, is going to taunt you
you know when that summer wind comes on the lonely playground
that's going to haunt you one day in your life

That summer feeling, that summer feeling, that summer feeling

folks, when the Oldsmobile has got its top down on it
well you know, 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 sort of hard to name
it doesn't matter, this feeling one day is going to haunt you one day in your life

That summer feeling, that summer feeling, that summer feeling

can I get away with one more Like this?

when even third-grade starts looking good, which you hated
and first grades looking good too, overrated
and you boys long for some little girl that you dated
do you long for her, or for the way you were?
That summer feeling is going to haunt you one day in your life

That summer feeling, that summer feeling, that summer feeling

when the little dirt playground is just dirt and a few swings comes haunting
what a little girl who called you a flirt, she had an ankle bracelet on, she comes to talk to
take these things alone, they're not that appealing
when you put them together you get this certain feeling though
and it's that summer feeling which is going to haunt you one day in your life

That summer feeling, that summer feeling, that summer feeling

one more ???

it's going to haunt you
That summer feeling, that summer feeling, that summer feeling
and it's going to taunt you
That summer feeling, that summer feeling, that summer feeling
you're going to want to this feeling inside
That summer feeling, that summer feeling, that summer feeling
oh, I know
