lyrics

Summer Afternoon

Young girls smile
hands full of candy canes and fairy floss
from my seat way up high
the sun goes down melting in butterscotch

This summer afternoon
might end too soon
taking your happiness away
flowers hurry to bloom
sneak out of their rooms
taking your happiness away

Old men sit on shady comers
playing dominos and cards
shaking their heads at young men slouching
bass booming in their cars

This summer afternoon
might end too soon
taking your happiness away
flowers hurry to bloom
sneak out of their rooms
taking your happiness away

Nothing I can say can make this easy on you
you lay your heart upon the floor
and they just walk right through

Daughter stands hands on hips
painted nails and ruby lips
a mother paces nervously
dragging on her cigarette

This summer afternoon
might end too soon
taking your happiness away
flowers hurry to bloom
sneak out of their rooms
taking your happiness away
flowers hurry to bloom
flowers hurry to bloom
