Girls In Their Summer Clothes

Girls In Their Summer Clothes

Well the streetlights shine down on Blessing Avenue
Lovers they walk by holding hands two by two
A breeze crosses the porch, bicycle spokes spin 'round
Jacket's on, I'm out the door, tonight I'm gonna burn this town down

And the girls in their summer clothes in the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes pass me by

A kid's rubber ball smacks off the gutter 'neath the lamp light
Big bank clock chimes off go the sleepy front porch lights
Downtown the stores alight as the evening's underway
Things been a little tight but I know they're gonna turn my way

And the girls in their summer clothes in the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes pass me by

Frankie's Diner's an old friend on the edge of town
The neon sign spinning round like a cross over the lost and found
The fluorescent lights flick above Pop's Grill
Shaniqua brings a coffee and asks, "fill?"
And says, "penny for your thoughts now my boy, Bill"

She went away, she cut me like a knife
Hello beautiful thing, maybe you could save my life
In just a glance down here on Magic Street
Love's a fool's dance, I ain't got much sense but I still got my feet

And the girls in their summer clothes in the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes pass me by
And the girls in their summer clothes in the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes pass me by

La la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la, la la la la la la la
