      About "Summertime"

      Lyrics for DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince - "Summertime"

      Summer summer summertime
      Time to sit back and unwind

      Here it is the groove slightly transformed
      Just a bit of a break from the norm
      Just a little somethin' to break the monotony
      Of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be
      A little bit out of control it's cool to dance
      But what about the groove that soothes that moves romance
      Give me a soft subtle mix
      And if ain't broke then don't try to fix it
      And think of the summers of the past
      Adjust the base and let the alpine blast
      Pop in my CD and let me run a rhyme
      And put your car on cruise and lay back cause this is summertime

      Summer summer summertime
      Time to sit back and unwind
      Summer summer summertime
      Time to sit back and unwind
      Summer summer summertime
      Time to sit back and unwind

      School is out and it's a sort of a buzz
      A back then I didn't really know what it was
      But now I see what have of this
      The way that people respond to summer madness
      The weather is hot and girls are dressing less
      And checking out the fellas to tell 'em who's best
      Riding around in your jeep or your benzos
      Or in your Nissan stting on lorenzos
      Back in Philly we be ou in the park
      A place called the plateau is where everybody goes
      Guys out hunting and girls doing likewise
      Honking at the honey in front of you with the light eyes
      She turn around to see what you beeping at
      It's like the summers a natural afradesiac
      And with a pen and pad I compose this rhyme
      To hit you and get you equipped for the summer time

      Summer summer summertime
      Time to sit back and unwind
      Summer summer summertime
      Time to sit back and unwind
      Summer summer summertime
      Time to sit back and unwind

      It's late in the day and I ain't been on the court yet
      Hustle to the mall to get me a short set
      Yeah I got on sneaks but I need a new pair
      'Cause basketball courts in the summer got girls there
      The temperature's about 88
      Hop in the water plug just for old times sake
      Break to ya crib change your clothes once more
      'Cause you're invited to a barbeque that's starting at 4
      Sitting with your friends cause y'all remincise
      About the days growing up and the first person you kiss
      And as I think back makes me wonder how
      The smell from a grill could spark up nostalgia
      All the kids playing out front
      Little boys messin' round with the girls playing double-dutch
      While the DJ's spinning a tune as the old folks dance at your family reunion
      Then six o'clock rolls around
      You just finished wiping your car down
      It's time to cruise so you head to the summertime hangout
      It looks like a car show
      Everybody come lookin' real fine
      Fresh from the barber shop or fly from the beauty salon
      Every moment frontin' and maxin'
      Chillin' in the car they spent all day waxin'
      Leanin' to the side but you can't spead through
      Two miles an hour so everybody sees you
      There's an air of love and of happiness
      And this is the Fresh Prince's new defintion' of summer madness

      Summer summer summertime
      Time to sit back and unwind
      Summer summer summertime
      Time to sit back and unwind
      Summer summer summertime
      Time to sit back and unwind
