When I was young, during the summer…

 

When I was young, during the summer

we would play outside

all day long with our friends.

 

When I was young, during the summer

we would run through the sprinklers

on a hot afternoon to cool off.

 

When I was young, during the summer

we would ride our bikes all over the neighborhood,

and we felt safe doing so.

 

When I was young, during the summer

we would stay outside

until the street lights came on.

 

When I was young, during the summer

we would have sleepovers

and stay up all night.

 

When I was young, during the summer

we would have lemonade stands

that all of our neighbors would visit.

 

When I was young, during the summer

we would have a block party

and everyone on our block would attend.

 

When I was young, during the summer

we would catch fire flies

in washed out jars.

 

When I was young, during the summer

we would play tag, or house around

or kick the can, or red rover.

 

When I was young, during the summer

we would play, play, play because we knew

school was just around the corner.

 

What did you do

when you were young

during the summer?

 

Stay groovy…
