She was standing there with her big, blue, question mark eyes
Saying, "Would you stay the night"
And me, I was just seventeen, my very first time
But I knew it was right

She pulled off my baseball hat
We kissed, and I knew there was no looking back
By the end of May, I could feel the change
She pulled me close to say,

"I want a summer of misbehaving
"Out all night, no reservations
"In that river strippin' down till the sun comes up
"Oh, I want, oh, I want, oh, I want a summer of love"

June flew by, before we knew, it was the Fourth of July
So we headed to the Tennessee line
Bought a hundred bottle rockets, shot 'em up in the sky
And they lit up the night

Like rising stars that burn to dust
And I said, "Baby, that's just like us"
Someone set us up, lit the fuse
Two young lovers with nothing to lose

But a summer of misbehaving
Out all night, no reservations
In that river strippin' down till the sun comes up
Oh, I want, oh, I want, oh, I want a summer of love

No matter what happens, we'll have today
And I'll always, pretty baby, want to feel this way

I want a summer of misbehaving
Out all night, no reservations
In that river strippin' down till the sun comes up
Oh, I want, oh, I want, oh, I want a summer of love
Oh, a summer of love

I want a summer of love
(Out all night in that river,
Strippin' down till the sun comes up)

Summer of love
(Rising stars, popping and burning to dust
Yeah, that was us)

I want a summer of love
(Out all night in that river,
Strippin' down till the sun comes up)

Summer of love
(Rising stars, popping and burning to dust
Yeah, that was us)

Summer of love
Out all night hittin' that river
Strippin' down till the sun comes up
Summer of love
