    In the summertime when the weather is 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 what you feel
    Speed along the lane
    You can dine on a dollar twenty-five
    When the sun goes down
    You can make it, make it good in a lay-by

    We're no threat, 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 fishin' or go swimmin' in the sea
    We're always happy
    Life's for livin' yeah, that's our philosophy

    Sing along with us
    Dee dee dee-dee dee
    Dah dah dah-dah dah
    Yeah we're hap-happy
    Dah dah-dah
    Dee-dah-do dee-dah-do dah-do-dah
    Dah-do-dah-dah-dah
    Dah-dah-dah do-dah-dah

    Alright ah

    When the winter's here, yeah it's party time
    Bring your 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 your friends and we'll all go into town

    In the summertime when the weather is hot
    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 what you feel
    Speed along the lane
    You can dine on a dollar twenty-five

    Great song, horrible movie!

    Gotta second Summer Nights too.
    The third Police album sounds good in in the summer as well. Just don't want to try to spell it.

    Just about any song with "summer" in the title gets on the list, and then it just builds from there. Also just about any Beach Boy or Jimmy Buffett song. Just about anything off the first six Van Halen albums. Lots of good ones already listed, how 'bout:

    "Hot In The City" - Billy Idol
    "Going To A Go-Go" - Rolling Stones (I think just about any old Motown song would qualify!)
    "Magic" - Cars
    "Goin' Crazy" - David Lee Roth

    ah, lots more if I could free my mind to think of them!

    here are a couple more to think of

    1) pink floyd - the wall (the whole album)
    2) grease soundtrack
    3) alice cooper - i'm 18
    4) alice cooper - millie&billie
    5) doors- la woman
    6) ozzy - paranoid
    7) sammy hagar - i can't drive 55
    8) sheryl crow - your an orginal
    9) harry chapin - all my life a circle
    10) ramones - i wanna be sedated

    also on a quote about the theme to the great tag team the actual quote is as follows:

    "HERE COMES THE AXE/HERE COMES THE SMASH/A WALKING DISASTER" - ENTRANCE MUSIC TO DEMOLTION

    "LARGER THAN LIFE LIVING LEGEND" - CHRIS JERICHO

    "ALL MY LIFE IS A CIRCLE/SUNRISE TO SUNSET/ALL MY LIFE IS A CIRCLE/THE SEASONS CHANGE/THE YEARS GO BY" HARRY CHAPIN

    the hulkamaniac brother wants to give hisdeepest thanks brothers for posting on this important topic. i know it not star wars or spiderman but for most humaniods summertime is great. there is love in the iar. the hulkamaniac brothers works on his gorgeous bronzed tan for the ladies as usuall and as far as music goes i also am happy if i go down to a lake in a norman rockwell like setting and hear some jabroni playing a guitar to impress ladies. i love listening to the guitar but i always laugh at the brother playing it because he thinks that the guitar is the way to meet women and build life long relationships. the hulkamniac brother know the thruth is honestly builds relationships and people should look for more than just a one night stnad in life. that just my thoughts brother. i could be wrong. here is a few more sumer sounds
