Summertime

©Leonard Cohen and Sharon Robinson, first recorded by Diana Ross on "Red Hot Rhythm and Blues" (1987)

.

Summertime when will you come?

I wanna put my light things on

I wanna put my winter life away

Summertime I need a sunny day

.

I want those peaches on the table

Want the watermelon red

And the warm sun crepping through the window

To ease the outer pain

.

I want the sand out there to lie on

And the sea out there to swim

So my heart can take a holiday

From breaking over here

.

Summertime when will you come?

I wanna put my light things on

Wanna put my winter life away

Summertime I need a sunny day

.

And I wanna it dry forever

Wanna roll those windows down

Get the breeze back on my body

Get my feet back on the ground

.

I want the sand out there to lie on

And the sea out there to swim

So my heart can take a holiday

From breaking over here

.

Summertime when will you come?

I wanna put my light things on

I wanna put my winter life away

Summertime I need a sunny day
