Track Name: Here Comes Summer
Here Comes Summer

Here comes summer, gonna catch some waves,
School is over, no more tests and grades,
Park my Woodie, with all the kids' cool rides,
Building castles, that crumble with the tide,
Wee ooh wee ooh,
Wee ooh wee ooh,

Start the party, we hope it never ends,
Surf and sunshine, hangin' out with friends,
String bikinis, up and down the beach,
Shapely ladies, always within reach,
Wee ooh wee ooh,
Wee ooh wee ooh,

(Chorus)
Barefoot in the sand,
We were walkin' hand in hand,
Into the night, night, night,
In the moonlight by the cove,
You were holdin' me so close,
It felt so right, right, right,
Aaaahhhh...

(Solo)

Here comes autumn, headed back to school,
Goin’ steady, feelin' really cool,
We'll be dancin', at the senior hop,
Play the jukebox, the music never stops,
Wee ooh wee ooh,
Wee ooh wee ooh,

(Chorus)

Graduation, will soon be here at last,
Then the summer, gonna have a blast,
The beach is calling, gonna catch a wave,
With my baby, time to misbehave,
Wee ooh wee ooh,
Wee ooh wee ooh,
Wee ooh wee ooh,
Wee ooh wee ooh,
Track Name: Beer & Fun & Rock 'n' Roll
Beer & Fun & Rock ‘n’ Roll

I used to play guitar in a rock ‘n’ roll band,
And the girls wouldn't leave me alone,
The cretin hop, the blitzkrieg bop,
Now and then one of my own,
Dancin', prancin', later on romancin',
On the amp in the back of my van,
Fallin' in love for an hour or two,
Next night do it again,

(Chorus)

Part of me really misses those nights,
Didn't have a care in the world,
Beer and fun and rock 'n' roll,
Till along came a special girl,

She was tall and thin and a whole lotta men,
Cleared away to let her walk on by,
After my set, she said it's time we met,
Let's go, boy, your place or mine?
We talked all night, we got so tight,
Ya know I’m still with her today,
But once in a while, I think with a smile,
About the girls who led me astray,

(Chorus)

(Solo)

My girl’s cool, she’s nobody’s fool,
She knows I miss rockin’ at night,
She said, go man go, play a few shows,
Ain’t gonna make me uptight,
I know you’re mine, it’ll be just fine,
I know I’m not taking a chance,
But just in case, I say to your face,
No matter what, boy, it stays in your pants,

(Chorus x 2)
Track Name: You Want Me (But I Don't Want You)
YOU WANT ME (But I Don’t Want You)


(Chorus)
You want me but I don't want you,
You want me but I don't want you,
You want me but I don't want you,

Skanky girl in a sleazy bar
Married guy decides to score
Cheap motel was right next door,

Stripped down, drank up, did the deed,
Drank more and I smoked some weed,
Passed out cold at half past three,

(Chorus)

(Solo)

Woke up, girl gone cash gone pants gone,
Shirt gone, shoes gone socks gone smokes gone,
Keys gone, car gone beer gone phone gone, too,

Walked home, went in there's my wife,
She said baby take a hike,
I smell where you been all night,
Somethin’ in your head’s not right,

You want me, but I don't want you,
You want me, but I don't want you,
You want me but I don't want you,
You want me, but I don't want you,
You want me, but I don't want you,
You want me but I don't want you,
