In the summertime when the weather’s high,
you can stretch right up and touch the sky,
when the weather’s fine,
you got women, you got women on your mind.
–IN THE SUMMERTIME, by
Ray Dorset, recorded by Mungo Jerry (1970)

This is a classic summertime song and was a Number 1 hit by the pop-blues band Mungo Jerry in 1970. The band’s name is from the poem Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer, from T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. Here is the original music video.

Mungo Jerry: IN THE SUMMERTIME

In the summertime when the weather’s high
you can stretch right up and touch the sky
when the weather’s fine
you got women, you got women on your mind
Have a drink, have a drive
go out and see what you can find

If her daddy’s rich, take her out for a meal
If her daddy’s poor, just do as you feel
Speed along the lane
Do a ton, or a ton and twenty-five
When the sun goes down, you can make it
make it good in a lay-by

We’re not grey people, we’re not dirty, we’re not mean
We love everybody, but we do as we please
When the weather’s fine
we go fishing or go swimming in the sea
We’re always happy
life’s for living, yeah that’s our philosophy

Sing along with us, dee-dee-dee-dee-dee
Da-da-da-da-da Yeah, we’re happy happy
da-da-da-da-dah

When the winter’s here, yeah it’s party time
Bring a bottle, wear your bright clothes
It’ll soon be summertime, and we’ll sing again
we’ll go drivin’ or maybe we’ll settle down
If she’s rich, if she’s nice
bring you’re friends and we’ll all go into town
