At a red stop light in some sleepy town
An old truck pulled up with the windows down
That song from the past was playin' full blast

And all at once I was seventeen
And my car became a time machine
And all those years just disappeared

I could almost see my Janie beside me
Her bare feet up on the dash
And the boy I was
Was stirred up inside me
Tuggin' my heart
And takin' me back

Hey yeah yeah that summer song
We cranked it up and sang out strong
Every night we danced 'till dawn
And listened to it over and over

Hey yeah that summer song
We learned about love as we went along
Those glory days may be long gone
This feelin' still lives on
In that summer song
That summer song

On the night of the day I got my first car
I grabbed my brand new keys
And my old guitar
I picked up my girl
Man I owned the world

And the minute that we parked out on White Lake Road
There it was again
On my radio
Just in time
As her lips met mine

Oh well I can't help wonderin' where Janie is now
Is she still stealin' hearts like she used to do
Maybe she's somewhere listenin' somehow
Tuned in at this moment and feelin' it too

Hey yeah yeah that summer song
We cranked it up and sang out strong
Every night we danced 'till dawn
And listened to it over and over

Hey yeah that summer song
We learned about love as we went along
Those glory days may be long gone
This feelin' still lives on
In that summer song

Oh yeah yeah yeah

Yeah
Hey yeah yeah that summer song
We cranked it up and sang out strong
Those glory days may be long gone
This feelin' still lives on
In that summer song
That summer song
That summer song
