    Lyrics

    The taxman's taken all my dough
    And left me in my stately home
    Lazing on a sunny afternoon
    And I can't sail my yacht
    He's taken everything I've got
    All I've got's this sunny afternoon

    Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
    I got a big fat mama trying to break me
    And I love to live so pleasantly
    Live this life of luxury
    Lazing on a sunny afternoon
    In the summertime, in the summertime, in the summertime

    My girlfriend's run off with my car
    And gone back to her Ma and Pa
    Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty
    Now I'm sitting here
    Sipping at my ice cold beer
    All I've got's this sunny afternoon

    Help me, help me, help me sail away
    Well give me two good reasons why I ought to stay
    'Cause I love to live so pleasantly
    Live this life of luxury
    Lazing on a sunny afternoon
    In the summertime, in the summertime, in the summertime

    Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
    I got a big fat mama trying to break me
    And I love to live so pleasantly
    Live this life of luxury
    Lazing on a sunny afternoon
    In the summertime, in the summertime, in the summertime
    In the summertime, in the summertime
