Found on Holiday.

All you brothers and sisters
Lookin' for a better way
Why don't you all go to the country
Hitch a ride from the city
Get away for the day

The summertime is gonna take you
People playing music won't forsake you
But when it's hot
You gotta go all the way

All you dancers and twisters
Lookin' for a place to play
Why don't you all go to the country
People in the city
Get away for the day

I don't know how I'm gonna do it
But someone else will push me to it
But when it's hot
You gotta go all the way

The summertime is gonna take you
People playing music won't forsake you
I don't know how I'm gonna do it
But someone else will push me to it
