Lyrics

Summer Days

Written By: Mark "Redd" Mirkovich

Remember when, life wasn’t so tough…We were so young…just growing up…I never knew, why people cry, What a bill was, no concept of time…While chasing friends…Up and down the block…Hide and seek, Out past dark…Hearing momma’s voice calling my name, Pretending not to hear and playing one more game… If I only knew, all that I know now…I’d cherish every moment that I played and ran around…Oh how things have changed, in so many ways…How I wish I could recapture …Those summer days…yeah, Leave your work behind and run and play…Wish they all could be like summer days…Cuz the heat gonna drive our cares away. Remember how … we’d spend every last day…Riding through the park, living for today…Not worrying, ‘bout what was going on… The only concern, what time we going home…I hope that… the sun stays out, It never goes away, my friends are all around, We playing ball, having good times…
Laughing all day and feeling so dang fine…… If I only knew, all that I know now…I’d cherish every moment that I played and ran around…Oh how things have changed, in so many ways…How I wish I could recapture …Those summer days…yeah, Leave your work behind and run and play…Wish they all could be like summer days…Cuz the heat gonna drive our cares away. Oh let’s play… now… Nine Mississippi, Ten Mississippi… Ready or not here I come…The funs begun…yeah…Let’s play a game of kick the can…
Tag your it, I got you man…I hope that y’all can understand…We should always have some fun… on those summer days…yeah, Leave your work behind and run and play…Wish they all could be like summer days…Cuz the heat gonna drive our cares away. Those summer days…yeah, Leave your work behind and run and play…Wish they all could be like summer days…Cuz the heat gonna drive our cares away.
