Well, I'm gonna raise a fuss and I'm gonna raise a holler
I've been working all summer just to try to earn a dollar
Well, the time will come when baby, I try to get a date
My boss says, "No dice, girl, you gotta work late"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

Well, my mom and brother told me girl you gotta make some money
If you want to use the car to go riding next Sunday
Well, I didn't go to work I told the boss I was sick
You can't use the car 'cause you didn't work late

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

I'm gonna take two weeks, gonna have a fine vacation
Gonna take my problem to the United Nations
Well I called the congressman and he said quote
"I'd like to help you honey but you're too young to vote"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
And there ain't no cure for the summertime blues
Ain't no cure, no no
