That’s where we want to go, way down in Kokomo

Martinique, that Montserrat mystique
We’ll put out to sea and we’ll perfect our chemistry
And by and by we’ll defy a little bit of gravity
Afternoon delight, cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye, give me a tropical contact high

All of those tourists covered with oil
Strumming my six string, on my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp, they’re beginning to boil

Wasting away again in Margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there’s a woman to blame
But I know it’s nobody’s fault

Don’t know the reason that I stayed here all season
With nothing to show but this brand new tattoo
But it’s a real beauty, a Mexican cutie
How it got here I haven’t a clue

Wasting away again in Margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there’s a woman to blame
Now I think, hell it could be my fault

I wanna live fast and never look back, that’s what we here for
Don’t wanna wake up one day wondering “where’d it all go?”
‘Cause we’ll be home before we know, I wanna hear you sing it

Hey, mama, don’t stress your mind
We coming home tonight

Palm trees are growing and warm breezes blowing

From: USA
Album: Homebase
Released: 1991
Genre: Hip Hop

Summer, summer, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind

Here it is the groove slightly transformed
Just a bit of a break from the norm
Just a little somethin’ to break the monotony
Of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be
A little bit out of control it’s cool to dance
But what about the groove that soothes that moves romance
Give me a soft subtle mix
And if ain’t broke then don’t try to fix it
And think of the summers of the past
Adjust the bass and let the Alpine blast
Pop in my CD and let me run a rhyme
And put your car on cruise and lay back ’cause this is summertime

Summer, summer, summertime
Time to sit back and unwind

Was tan but now you’re white (ugh)

Ooh, so baby, let’s get it on

Drinkin’ wine and killin’ time, sitting in the summer sun
You know I’ve wanted you so long
Why’d you have to drop that bomb on me?
Lazy days, crazy dolls
You said we’d been friends too long

Seven days in sunny June but long enough to bloom
The flowers on the summer dress you wore in spring
The way we laughed as one and then you dropped the bomb
That I’ve know you too long for us to have a thing
Ooh, so baby, let’s get it on

51 | Shoreline — John Frinzi

From: USA
Album: Shoreline
Released: 2009
Genre: Folk

Out here off the shoreline, a conspiracy at dawn…
The poet and the mermaids, with the window shades all drawn… The facts are not the story, and dreams choose up the sides,
The mermaids tend to breakfast, the poet’s throat is dry.

A race to bridge the morning, a vote to change the tune, Hot ideas cool their feet, soon come the afternoon…

Out here off the shoreline, conspiracies take time…
And the mermaids have their troubles. The poet waits for rhymes.

Out here off the shoreline, the calling of the ocean Out here off the shoreline, the dreams of a poet, Out here off the shoreline…

The ocean has an answer for the dryness of the tongue, The facts become the poems, the dreams all laugh in fun. A thought to bridge the water, is sand to change the beach, Mermaids drink their loving when the poet’s out of reach.

Kickin’ back diggin’ that warm sunshine
and girl you’re barely on my mind.
Every buffet is jammin’
and girl I’ve been slammin’
every single drink that they send my way
I’m Landshark buzzin’
Worried ‘bout nothin’
Findin’ out feeling good comes in waves.
Now I could find me another you

Well, the plane touched down just about three o’clock
And the city’s still on my mind
Bikinis and palm trees danced in my head
I was still in the baggage line
Concrete and cars are their own prison bars like this life I’m living in
But the plane brought me farther
I’m surrounded by water
And I’m not going back again

Four days flew by like a drunk Friday night
As the summer drew to an end
They can’t believe that I just couldn’t leave
And I bid adieu to my friends
Because my bartender she’s from the islands
Her body’s been kissed by the sun
And coconut replaces the smell of the bar
And I don’t know if it’s her or the Rum

Life is good today
Life is good today

Sometimes life can be deceiving

Now that you’re twentytwo, twentytwo
If I could do it, I would stay young for you
We could live inside a place
Where we’d never have to face
All the people who disgrace us
And make us hide our face

If I could do it, I would fly into the sun
I would become warm
And I meant it when I said you’re my favourite son
With your finger that is reaching
For the trigger of the gun
And you know you’ve got to prove it
To yourself and everyone

I do not go quietly
Into the night that calls me
Even when I’m alone
I do not go quietly
Into the night that calls me
Even when I’m alone

This will be a lost street

When you open your eyes it’s like
Nothing’s real
When you open your eyes it’s like

Did the good days go away?
In the bright lights, did it fade?
We were heavy, we were sideways
When we danced in the dark over my place
If it’s my face you remembered
From all the Sundays in the summer
Then you’d know there was so much more than a spark
Enough to make me run and follow you in the dark

Though I know you’re not home

But I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your
Sunglasses on, baby
I can tell you, my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream?
Now I don’t understand what happened to our love
But babe, I’m gonna get you back
I’m going to show you what I’m made of

See you walkin’ ’round like it’s a funeral
Not so serious, girl, why those feet cold?
We just gettin’ started, don’t you tiptoe, tiptoe (ah)Waste time with a masterpiece, don’t waste time with a masterpiece (huh)
You should be rollin’ with me, you should be rollin’ with me (ah-ah-ah)
You’re a real-life fantasy, you’re a real-life fantasy (huh)
But you’re movin’ so carefully, let’s start livin’ dangerously

Red velvet, vanilla, chocolate in my life

81 | Vacation — Johnny Stimson

From: TX, USA
Album: Vacation

I guess I’m kind of in a mood right now
I’ve got a million things to do right now
I need a minute just to breathe
I just got home
My body doesn’t have a timezone yet
A benadryl before we climb in bed
My phone is buzzing in the sheets
I just got home

Let’s fly away from here I
Need a vacation
Blast off tonight for Malibu
Wake up in Shangri-la
With no reservations
Real life can wait on me and you

I wanna run away
I wanna run away

We’ll sip mimosas in the south of France
And drift away to Never-never land
We can take a little break from growing up

From: USA
Album: Some Nights
Released: 2012
Genre: Indie Rock

Give me a second I
I need to get my story straight
My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State
My lover she’s waiting for me just across the bar
My seat’s been taken by some sunglasses asking ’bout a scar, and
I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you’re trying to forget
But between the drinks and subtle things
The holes in my apologies, you know
I’m trying hard to take it back
So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Album: Born to Die: The Paradise Edition
Released: 2012
Genre: Pop

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That baby, you the best

I got my red dress on tonight
Dancin’ in the dark, in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big, beauty queen style
High heels off, I’m feelin’ alive

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzlin’ like a snare
Honey, I’m on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothin’ scares me anymore
(One, two, three, four)

I got that summertime, summertime sadness
Su-su-summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

I’m feelin’ electric tonight
Cruisin’ down the coast, goin’ about 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
I know if I go, I’ll die happy tonight

85 | Summer — Calvin Harris

From: Scotland

Released: 2014

When I met you in the summer
To my heartbeat’s sound
We fell in love
As the leaves turned brown

And we could be together, baby
As long as skies are blue
You act so innocent now
But you lied so soon
When I met you in the summer

Summer
When I met you in the summer
Summer
