The goal of our "Song Challenges" is to write songs/lyrics on demand within set parameters. We don't critique each other's songs in this thread (but you can say you like someone's song if you want to.) Please post your original works. If you have already written a song/lyric that fits within the parameters, please feel free to post it.

Since we are in the middle of summer, let's do a summer song.

Rule 1: Write a lyric/song that revolves around summer as a specific time, from any viewpoint. Perhaps the viewpoint is a student looking forward to summer vacation, perhaps a summer love, anything that uses summer as a specific time.

Rule 2: You don't have to use the word summer but it should be clear that the season IS summer.

Rule 3: IT HAS TO BE NEW AND CREATED JUST FOR THIS CHALLENGE.

Hi Jean!

I love summer!!! I notice rule 3 is somewhat new and you have it in CAPS!! OUCH!!

In all honesty, I am going to post a lyric that is mostly new because I had started it in 2010 and you made me finish it w/your challenge. It is highly unusual for me to not finish a lyric the day I write it (I can't sleep if I don't) but this one came w/a melody and I was trying to fit the words to the melody and put it aside so I am crossing my fingers and posting anyway. I beg forgiveness.

“Summertime” (adult easy) (have melody)
©2010/2012 Lynn Orloff

Summertime
We fell in love so fast in summertime
Oh how we wished it last
That cherished kiss would see us through
Those seasons missed until I’d be with you...then

Autumn called
With changing leaves that took too long to fall
It seems our dreams were all but put on pause
But I would wait, anticipate return of summertime

Refrain
Winter’s snow
Fell deep and cold and left me so alone
My heart would have to wait till yours came home
Oh how I longed for summertime
…….

Instrumental (the instrumental will be a repeat of the Refrain's melody)

and then came...

Summertime
Our favorite flower growing on the vine
You found your way and slipped your hand in mine
Oh how I find....I love the summer
Love the summer
Love the summertime

A Summer Song
© words and music by C. Stewart ( July 29, 2012 )


LISTEN HERE
... http://www.soundclick.com/bands/0/calvinstewart

We sing a summer song
Where the surf meets the sand
The pipeline to love is
When were holding hands

CHORUS...
So sing a summer song with me it's free
It won't cost us a dime
Fall in love feel the summertime

We sing a summer song
Enjoy the blazing heat
Even when asphalt
Is melting our feet

CHORUS...
So sing a summer song with me it's free
It won't cost us a dime
Fall in love feel the summertime

CHORUS...
So sing a summer song with me it's free
It won't cost us a dime
Fall in love feel the summertime

We sing a summer song
Where the surf meets the sand
The pipeline to love is
When were holding hands

CHORUS...
So sing a summer song with me it's free
It won't cost us a dime
Fall in love feel the summertime

Thanks for posting, Lynn and Cal.

Lynn, yes, I added a new rule. We need to stretch and grow and try something new, and posting songs we already wrote doesn't help us do that. So that is why I included that.

"It's Summer Time" by Dave Gill (c) 2012

Sun tanned bodies
hot, wet skin
puts me in this mood I'm in
Itsy bitsy
the new black
gives old men a
heart attack

it's summer time
yeah,
it's summer time
I said
it's summer time
all day
it's summer time

drinking, dancing
painted toes
tramp stamp for the ones
who know
hunt is on
breakin' sweat
I'll find someone soon
I bet

It's summer time
yeah,
it's summer time
I said
it's summer time
right now
it's summer time

Mixing drinks
mixing tunes
mixed up with a
girl like you
body shots
daring kiss
Puts me in a mood like this

it's summer time
yeah,
it's summer time
I said
it's summer time
all night
it's summer time

You got
she got
we got minutes
touching
melting
all up in it
bumping
grinding
passing flirty
on the dance floor
we'll get dirty

summer time
yeah,
it's summer time
I said
it's summer time
with you
it's summer time

Let's go
it's summer time
You know
it's summer time
I said
it's summer time
in bed
it's summer time

Let's make it hot!

Peace,

Dave

Need a starter?

Hey, Baby!
Let's sit in the shade
'n sip some hard lemonade
'n think of all the things we'd do
if it wasn't so hot!

Hey, Baby ....

Hi Jean,
Just wrote it, it's my next post to the 50/90, and I thank you for the inspiration. Summer and the younger generation go together so I went for a pop tween song!

Summer Ends

(c) 2012 Geneva Griffin

Verse 1
The sunlight caught my eye when it hit your hair,
You looked Up.... and I rushed right in my house..
Straight thru the looking glass I stared,
I was a mess.... I was so embaraced..

Verse 2
Change my clothes looked out the window pane,
Not a glimpse.... inside that summer rental..
Seemed like hours 'fore you came out again,
Summertime rain.... Beach front empty..

Lift
And I thought about you, I thought about you,
Must'a been a million times..
I thought about you, and I thought about you,
Wondered 'bout the color of your eyes..

Chorus
Now there you are.. here's my chance..
I walk up and say hi no I'm not scared,
Knowin' before long we'd be holdin' hands....
Yet knowin' 3 months time.... summer ends..

Verse 3
We danced in the surf we played in the sand,
Promised to write.... when you had to leave..
That summer flew by and now all I can do,
As I walk alone.... on this lonely beach..

Lift
Is think about you, I think about you,
Must be a million times..
I think about you, and I think about you
You and those deep blue eyes eyes..

Chorus
When there you were.. I took my my chance..
I walk up to say hi not scared a bit,
Knowin' before long we'd be holdin' hands....
Yet knowin' 3 months time.... summer ends..

Tag
Ya I think about you, I think about you,
Like a melody I can't get off my mind..
I think about you, ya I think about you.
Like a tune I wanna hear a million times..
