Feels Like Summer

“The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats.”  Albert Schweitzer

It’s a beautiful day here in Southern Illinois.  With sunshine and temps in the 80s, I’m feeling summer coming on.  Now I ask you, what song is any more appropriate for summer than Itsy, Bitsy, Teen Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini by Brian Hyland?  None that come to my mind.  So grab yourself a glass of lemonade and your beach umbrella, sit back and relax and enjoy this blast from summers past.

 

Were teenagers ever really this naïve?

She was afraid to come out of the locker,
She was as nervous as she could be.
She was afraid to come out of the locker,
She was afraid that somebody would see!
(Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore!)

It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini,
That she wore for the first time today.
An itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow polka-dot bikini,
So in the locker she wanted to stay!
(Two, three, four, stick around we’ll tell ya more!)

She was afraid to come out in the open,
And so a blanket around her she wore.
She was afraid to come out in the open,
And so she sat bundled up on the shore.
(Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore!)

It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini,
That she wore for the first time today.
An itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow polka-dot bikini,
So in the blanket she wanted to stay!
(Two, three, four, stick around we’ll tell ya more!)

Now she’s afraid to come of the water,
And I wonder what she’s gonna do.
Now she’s afraid to come out of the water,
And the poor little girl’s turnin’ blue!
(Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore!)

It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini,
That she wore for the first time today.
An itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow polka-dot bikini,
So in the water she wanted to stay!

From the locker to the blanket,
From the blanket to the shore,
From the shore to the water,
Guess there isn’t any more!

Happy Hump Day!
