SUMMER SHENANIGANS

the word is out on the streets
fresh paint drips on concrete
kids gone crazy in the heat
you bet they're up to mischief

summer shenanigans
smells like someone's cooking up some bad ass plans
summer shenanigans
idle dirty hands and ants in the pants
happy summer mondays beat the winter weekends
gotta go wild before the summer ends

summer! (it's about time it's about time it's about)
summer shenanigans!

summer shenanigans
woke up buried neck deep in the sand
summer shenanigans
beware the guy with the jazz hands

summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer! (it's about time it's about time it's about)
summer shenanigans!

hey have you heard the news, boy
you can't get the blues, oh no
if you stay amused or even confused
stick with us and you get to choose

summer shenanigans!
summer! (it's about time it's about time it's about)
summer shenanigans!
shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!

just a little fun fun fun
everybody's gotta have some some
hey daddy-o, you're in a freaking YouTube video

summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!

POPSICLE SUMMER

here it comes
pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

ooh I'm longing for another popsicle
cos Finnish summer is so fickle
every spring at least will bring some new tastes
all of which are not that great
but there might be new candidates for
pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's time for pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

hats off to Frank Epperson who was just eleven
when he bumped into his invention
a frozen drink combined with a wooden stick (ingenious!)
ice pop ice block ice lolly icy pole
oh so sweet and fresh and ice cold
when it gets hot you'll surely dig this
pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's time for pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

this is a tribute to
pop pop pop pop pop pop popsicles
of yesteryears that are now missing
Handy with it's pointed finger
Roger Rabbit's jelly center
Jenga was a long green spiral
Batman, Pop Up, Rio Cola
M.A.C. Black Orange, where did you vanish
please stay with me, at least you Pommac and Päärynä Lipsi!

cos it's summer and life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's summer and life has just began
and we discover that we're always young
when days are spent in such idle ways
we'd go so far for just a popsicle
cos it's time for pop pop pop pop pop popsicle summer

Lyrics

baby, let's do it
let's make it through the summer

shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery

hey, let's calculate
come up with a catchphrase
for kids to sing throughout the summer
naive, innocent and sweet
some fluffy make-believe
to sell the idea of summer

everybody gets a little bit funny
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery uu-ah uu-ah
everybody wants to find their honey
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery u-aa
baby, let's do it
let's make it through the summer

whoa, that could bring us dough
quite catchy even though
it's not as good as Coco Jambo
well, what the hell
if only it will sell
we can forget it after summer

everybody gets a little bit funny
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery uu-ah uu-ah
everybody wants to find their honey
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery u-aa
baby, let's do it
let's make it through the summer

mandatory reggae part!
autumnal love grows like a rainstorm
wintry love will keep you warm
springtime love well it's a bit of a norm
but there's something really special
in that shimmery summery sha-la-la love

everybody gets a little bit funny
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery uu-ah uu-ah
everybody wants to find their honey
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery u-aa
baby, let's do it
let's make it through the summer
u-aa u-aa u-aa

shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery
uu-ah uu-ah
