    Lyrics

    Drums please, 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 base 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
    Summer, summer, summertime
    Time to sit back and unwind
    Summer, summer, summertime
    Time to sit back and unwind
    School is out and it's a sort of a buzz
    But back then I didn't really know what it was
    But now I see what have of this
    The way that people respond to summer madness
    The weather is hot and girls are dressin' less
    And checkin' out the fellas to tell 'em who's best
    Ridin' around in your jeep or your Benzos
    Or in your Nissan sittin' on Lorenzo's
    Back in Philly we be out in the park
    A place called the plateau is where everybody goes
    Guys out huntin' and girls doin' likewise
    Honkin' at the honey in front of you with the light eyes
    She turn around to see what you beepin' at
    It's like the summer's a natural aphrodisiac
    And with a pen and pad, I compose this rhyme
    To hit you and get you equipped for the summertime
    Summer, summer, summertime
    Time to sit back and unwind
    Summer, summer, summertime
    Time to sit back and unwind
    It's late in the day and I ain't been on the court yet
    Hustle to the mall to get me a short set
    Yeah, I got on sneaks but I need a new pair
    Cause basketball courts in the summer got girls there
    The temperature's about 88
    Hop in the water plug just for old times sake
    Creak to ya crib, change your clothes once more
    Cause you're invited to a barbecue that's startin' at 4
    Sittin' with your friends cause y'all reminisce
    About the days growin' up and the first person you kiss
    And as I think back, makes me wonder how
    The smell from a grill could spark up nostalgia
    All the kids playin' out front, little boys messin' 'round
    With the girls playin' double-dutch
    While the DJ's spinnin' a tune as the old folks
    Dance at your family reunion
    Then six 'o clock rolls around
    You just finished wipin' your car down
    It's time to cruise, so you head to
    The summertime hangout, it looks like a car show
    Everybody come lookin' real fine
    Fresh from the barber shop or fly from the beauty salon
    Every moment frontin' and maxin'
    Chillin' in the car they spent all day waxin'
    Leanin' to the side but you can't speed through
    Two miles an hour so, everybody sees you
    There's an air of love and of happiness and this is
    The Fresh Prince's new definition of summer madness
    Summer, summer, summertime
    Time to sit back and unwind
    Summer, summer, summertime
    Time to sit back and unwind
    Summer, summer, summertime
    Time to sit back and unwind
    Summer, summer, summertime
    Time to sit back and unwind
